    Industrial Vacuumation

    AQUALIS’ knowledgeable professionals are capable of removing sediment, sludge and liquids with top-of-the-line industrial vacuum trucks for a range of projects large or small on locations across the nation.

    Industrial vacuum trucks are designed to collect, contain and move large scales of unwanted debris offsite. With years of experience in operating, identifying, and performing vactor services, AQUALIS’ specialists can utilize industrial vacuuming during maintenance and repairs that minimize risk to underground assets, soil and property for underground water assets. Our deep understanding of stormwater and wastewater requirements gives us unmatched knowledge to ensure proper cleaning is performed without damaging systems.

    Industrial Vacuuming Advantages

    Industrial vacuuming functions using air displacement. Air is removed from the truck’s holding tank to reduce pressure inside. This creates a strong suction as air is rushed into the tank to equalize pressure. This use of air displacement offers many advantages to traditional mechanical removal processes:

    • Confined Space Access: Industrial vacuum services can be provided anywhere a suction hose can reach. This expands collection service offerings beyond the means of mechanical options.
    • Wet and Dry Services: Industrial vacuuming can collect solids, sludges, slurries and liquids.
    • Waste Disposal: Collecting waste within a holding tank and partnering with a reputable service provider like AQUALIS ensures easy disposal within compliance with local, state and federal regulations.
