Standard and Liquid Ring Vacuum Trucks • Industrial Loaders/Air Movers • Stainless Steel Vacuum Trucks • Combination Units
Standard and Liquid Ring Vacuum Trucks
Standard and Liquid ring vacuum trucks efficiently and cost-effectively remove and transport liquid and semi-solid waste materials, both hazardous and non-hazardous, from surface impoundments, tanks, and other vessels. They are also frequently used in spill clean-up actions and for in-plant hauling or transfer of most liquids and sludge. Many of the units used have full rear-opening doors, facilitating clean out at the completion of a project. Liquid ring vacuum trucks are equipped for hazardous atmospheres specifically addressing flammability and explosivity.
Industrial Loaders/Air Movers
Air-moving is a highly efficient and versatile process for removing salvageable materials or industrial waste contained in tanks, containers, surface impoundments, and/or process vessels. Using suction velocities of up to 150 mph or 6,000 cfm, air-movers can convey almost any material that will fit through an eight-inch hose over a distance of up to 1,000 feet, depending on the material’s weight. Material or waste is deposited into truck-mounted collector modules, drums, or other intermediate containers for transportation to ultimate disposition.
Stainless Steel Vacuum Trucks
Stainless steel units are designed to pump, store and transport chemicals with corrosive properties, such as strong acids and bases. The ability of the stainless steel tank to resist corrosion makes it ideal for projects requiring transportation or transfer of these types of chemicals.
Combination units are fitted with water pumping systems used in conjunction with the vacuum capabilities. The vacuum combination unit is used for cleaning lines such as storm drains, sanitary drains, and lift stations and is also well equipped to remove contaminated soil surrounding underground utilities and contaminants from storm drains as a result of spills or accidental releases.
