While there are a variety of types of vacuum trucks and specialty features, that are designed for specific purposes and industries, these machines do share certain similarities. They are typically equipped with high-powered vacuum and water pressure systems which are designed to clean out various types of industrial tanks and municipal wastewater infrastructure. They are also equipped with debris tanks for safe debris disposal.

Cost Savings

The power of high powered vacuum trucks ensures the heaviest debris is removed from each tank quickly, regardless of depth or distance. The logistics of each site are assessed ahead of time before the cleaning crew arrives to ensure each project is completed efficiently.

Before their arrival, safety issues are addressed and a plan is developed which in turn mitigates the risk of any unforeseen costs.

Operational Efficiency

Onsite tank cleaning means less downtime for your business or municipality. The amount of time that tanks or vessels are out of operation can be greatly reduced. They can be put back into operation as soon as the cleaning process is complete, subject to TSSA requirements.

Further efficiency is gained from the fact that waste from the tanks is captured directly in the debris tanks of the trucks making it ready for safe transport and disposal.

Vacuum trucks can help maintain your facility whether you operate a business that uses industrial tanks, or whether you work for a municipality and need assistance with your cleaning and transporting needs.
