Hydrovac Excavation

Hydrovac Excavation

Define: Hydro excavation is the process of removing soil or other debris with high-pressure water stream. A vacuum is then used to transfer the soil or debris to a debris tank. This allows for a non-destructive and more accurate way to excavate soil and locate underground utilities. It is also known as a suction excavator or vacuum excavator. Vacuum excavation is fundamentally 100% secure method for revealing and exposing the uppermost layer from buried services. It is the best option for removing materials from dirty or sensitive areas like yards. Hydro vacuum trucks are safe and as compare to traditional digging. Hydrovac trucks are able to dig in all types of soil, including clay. This system is much faster than conventional or Hand digging

How hydro-excavation works: This is the latest technology. It is a mechanical and non-destructive process that uses high-pressure water and a flow of air to excavate the soil in a controlled manner. The high-pressure water digs the earth. Once the soil is breached, the air vacuum is used to extract the soil and move it to a debris tank. It is a more cost efficient and less time consuming than traditional methods of excavation.

Benefits of Hydro-Excavation:

  • This process is very useful for bulk excavation in restricted areas
  • These machines are capable of safely digging up to 12 wide and 5 feet deep pothole in just 20 mins
  • Safe removal of earth by water, air and vacuum pressure
  • This reduces the risk of costly delays and additional expense for construction companies.
  • This method reduces the damage to underground pipes, lines and cables
  • Hydro excavation is used for the line, sign and pole installation and location.
  • It is cost effective as well as it is time-saving
  • On frozen surface, hydro vacuum digging can easily be done by using warm water

Slot Trenching with Hydro-Excavation: The purpose of slot trenching is to dig narrow trenches. This is commonly needed for installing pipes, cables, signs, posts and other underground utilities. Since only narrow trenches are needed, because of accuracy and precision, hydro excavation provides a better option. Previous slot trenching methods can be dangerous and time-consuming

Daylight: The term daylight depicts that the unearthing and exposure of underground utilities such as water pipelines, oil and gas pipelines, fiber optic cables, power cables. This hydrovac method works to increase the productivity of performing work safely and decreases the overall costs of work.
