Vacuum excavation reduces the risks when exposing or digging around utilities. There are two methods of doing this: either by water or air.
SEQ Vacuum Excavation is the leading provider of hydro vacuum excavating services. Using vac trucks as opposed to conventional excavators/diggers ensures there is no unnecessary damage to underground utilities and services – this practice is also known as non-destructive digging (NDD).
There are multiple benefits to using vacuum excavation, including that it is a non-destructive, non-evasive, cost-effective, and accurate form of digging. This excavation method implements technology that is far more advanced than traditional excavators.
Hydro excavation is an efficient way to protect assets below the surface – it uses pressurized water and vacuums up soil with a high-pressure hose.
Our team offer a drain cleaning service using powerful jet rodding equipment that will remove any obstruction in your drain, including silt and scale build-up.
We use electro-magnetic equipment to locate buried utilities such as telephones, electricity distribution networks, and natural gas pipes.
We do safe, non-destructive hydro excavation for civil, industrial, commercial, and residential projects at SEQ Vacuum Excavation (SEQ VAC). From North Brisbane to the Sunshine Coast, including Caboolture and Moreton Bay, our services are available.Our skilled and experienced operators are committed to providing South East Queensland with safe, non-destructive ways of excavation and the protection of subsurface assets and infrastructure using vacuum excavation devices that are Australian developed and made. With highly educated and resourceful operators, our strong, adaptable machines are available for Wet Hire to maximise total efficiency
Simply put, it is a technique and form of digging that uses a strong vacuum system’s high-velocity suction.
In comparison to traditional excavation methods like jack hammering and machine excavation, it is frequently utilised to aid in visually locating underground utilities and service lines.
High-pressure water jets are used to break up the dirt on a surface while a mobile vacuum device removes the loose soil. Hydro excavation uses pressurized water to create a vacuum inside their buckets which sucks up soil and rocks from the bottom of the hole they’re digging.
A vacuum excavation unit has a wide range of applications and is only constrained by your imagination. It excels at trenching and open-hole excavations. For additional details, or to book an estimate, contact our team today!
We’ve worked for countless happy clients throughout Brisbane, sunshine coast, the Gold Coast and the rest of southeast Queensland. We’ve provided non-destructive, problem-free excavation services for a long time now, to a wide variety of clients, ranging from plumbers, electricians, and building contractors. We have dug trenches up to 80–100 metres long and 1 metre deep for some of our electrical clients.
A hydro vacuum truck is a specialized vehicle used for excavating and transporting wet or dry materials such as sludge, mud, sand, gravel, or other debris. It combines high-pressure water jets with a powerful vacuum system to break up and extract the material from underground, confined spaces, or hard-to-reach areas.
Hydro vacuum trucks offer several benefits over traditional excavation methods, including reduced damage to surrounding structures or landscape, increased safety and efficiency, and minimized environmental impact. They are also more versatile and can be used in a wide range of applications, such as cleaning out storm drains, septic tanks, industrial tanks, and municipal pipes.
Choosing the right hydro vacuum truck depends on several factors, such as the size and type of material to be extracted, the distance to the dumping site, the required suction power, and the available budget. It is important to work with a reputable supplier who can help assess your needs and recommend the most suitable hydro vacuum truck for your specific application. It is also important to ensure that the equipment meets safety standards and is regularly maintained and serviced to ensure optimal performance.
