Vacuum Truck

 

The Vacuum Truck Provides A Mobile Solution

The vacuum truck is a common site on our roads although the general public seldom refer to them by this name. These are heavy-duty vehicles on which heavy-duty industrial vacuum loaders are mounted. The function of the latter is to transport a variety of materials including solids, sludge, slurries and liquids along suction lines. A typicalvacuum truck carries suction lines with diameters of 2 to 4 inches, the norm for these vehicles being 3 inches.

The vacuum truck is versatile and may be configured to carry out a wide range of important applications. Towns and municipalities will employ this type of equipment for tasks as varied as street cleaning, unblocking sewerage systems and, in more rural communities, for draining individual septic tank installations. One of the businesses that tend to make most use of the vacuum truck is the petroleum industry. In this environment they can prove particularly effective for cleaning storage tanks and siphoning up spills.

The role of the vacuum truck within the fossil fuel industry is not confined to the refined products. At oil drilling sites and natural gas wells, these specialised vehicles may prove invaluable. Located on site, they are used to remove the mud and cuttings that are associated with the drilling process along with the transport of cement, cleaning of spills and the extraction of brine water from the numerous production tanks. Materials collected by the vacuum truck are later offloaded at sump pits and treatment plants as appropriate.

To make use of a vacuum truck, it is not necessary to own one. Instead of making the substantial capital investment necessary to purchase a vehicle, it is now common practice to hire one, along with an operator, to undertake one-off specialist clean up tasks or, to meet longer term requirement, to outsource the entire responsibility to a suitable third party. The vacuum truck has the advantage of being mobile and can be rapidly deployed in a wide variety of terrains.
