Industrial Vacuuming

The Vacuum Truck pneumatically conveys material — either solid, liquid or slurry from points near or remote. Our vacuum truck loads material into the collector body in a single mode with no adjustment for wet or dry material or when alternating between wet and dry.

In operation, the vacuum loader conveys solid or liquid material by suction lines into the debris body.

Initially the majority of the debris drops out of the airstream due to gravity and air-flow reduction through the length of the debris body.  Our Vac truck debris body features the longest distance in the industry from inlet to outlet (12 feet, 5 inches) for enhanced loading efficiency.

The airstream moves in equal amounts into seven (7) cyclone separators. At this point, the cyclones separate leftover material in the air stream. The material drops out of the cyclones and into the dump chute located directly below.

The airstream exits through the top of the cyclones and enters a duct to the bottom of the filter bag compartment. Filter bags collect any material remaining in the air stream which collects any material remaining in the airstream.

The airstream passes through the top of the filter bag compartment, travels down and passes through a final filter and vacuum pump and exits the silencer. Air returned to the atmosphere is clean and free of particulates.
