Vacuum excavators can be used for water treatment, excavating contaminated ground, removing materials buried around services or utilities (water, electric, gas, railway lines, telecoms, fibre-optics) and more.
Vacuum excavators use twin or triple air vehicle fans to create air flow, and the vacuum then pulls material inside the intake hose, where it’s transported into the catchment chamber. Sometimes the end of the tube will be toothed which helps to cut into the earth when it’s being used for excavating. From there, the material is sent to the holding tank, while a micro-mesh filter system captures all dust particles.
A powerful water jet or compressed air lance can sometimes be used to help break the ground, allowing the air flow to grab the material and move it into the excavator.
