Are you looking for a safe way to remove and dispose of sludge, hazardous liquids, and even fine loose materials? Are you limited by space and unable to use traditional methods of removing debris? If so, you should look no further than vacuum loading.
Vacuum loading uses a vacuum truck consisting of a pump and a tank. The pump provides suction with enough power to suck materials and deposit it in the storage/carrier tank.
The truck transports the debris to the approved deposit site for safe disposal. By using vacuum loading, you stand to accrue the following benefits:
- It is cost-effective
- Vacuum loading is faster than traditional loading methods
- It accords personnel with better safety
- Vacuum loading is versatile enough to in use a wide variety of scenarios
Vacuum Loading Is Cost-Effective
For debris recovery, vacuum loading has the notable benefit of being cost-effective. The main contributing factor is that vacuum loading does not involve the deployment and use of many machines.
The vacuum loader truck comes fitted with everything it needs to complete a job. For instance, the vacuum pump and debris tank are installed onto the truck. As such, you can vacuum material and transport it using a single truck.
Therefore, the associated cost of recovering and disposing of materials is reduced significantly. Additionally, the improved efficiency associated with vacuum loading increases the cost-saving for end users.
Vacuum Loading Is Fast
Unlike other material recovery methods, vacuum loading is exceptionally fast. Since the process of vacuuming uses a single truck for the entire process, it is much quicker.
For instance, the recovery equipment does not have to recover and load the material into a different vehicle, which is a time-consuming process. After the recovery of the material, it is diverted into the tank in a single operation.
It Is Much Safer For All Involved
The safety credentials of the vacuum loading process is another significant benefit. The personnel need only direct the vacuum hose to the material, and the vacuum pump sucks the material.
This reduces the risk of materials hitting users. The personnel can even set up the vacuum hose for remote material removal, further increasing their safety.
Vacuum Loading Is Versatile To Use In A Wide Variety Of Extreme Environments
In some cases, vacuum loading is the only material recovery method you can use. For instance, if you are working in confined spaces, traditional methods of debris recovery such as using diggers or a backhoe are quite simply untenable.
However, it is in such environments that vacuum loading comes stands out on its own. It allows users to excavate material in confined spaces without the need for a lot of space for the equipment.
The same applies to excavation projects involving hazardous materials and gases. As mentioned above, vacuum loading is much safer for the personnel as they do not have to come into contact with excavated material.
In some cases, the excavation personnel can work remotely, reducing the chances of inhaling hazardous gases. Vacuum loading also has the unique advantage of helping negate the adverse effects of spillages.
If a spillage is left unchecked, dangerous material percolates into the ground, affecting groundwater and soil quality. Vacuum loading allows emergency personnel to recover the material efficiently.
Additionally, you can use vacuum loading in projects such as hydro mud, marble slurry, concrete and drill slurry removal, drain cleaning, vessel, and tank cleaning, pile, pier, and bore cleaning, and much more.
As such, even when you cannot use other excavation/recovery methods, you can still rely on vacuum loading for your project.
Vacuum loading has excellent utility in industrial, commercial, and construction projects. As a material recovery method, it has a lot of benefits that other excavation and recovery methods cannot attain.
