Stuck Between Air And Hydro Vacuum Excavation?
Air Vacuum vs Hydrovac Excavations
Physical digging is the old traditional method of digging using workforce necessitates a vast labor force. Boring is an essential activity for setting up underground piping, the foundation of a building, railways network or sewage system for safe disposal of liquid wastewater. The traditional method of digging puts up the risk of damaging underground assets. This method is less efficient, not reliable and time-consuming. This method can lead to undesirable accidents like leakage in sewer pipers causing seepage of liquid wastewater putting health risks to residents in the vicinity or electrical faults in electrical wirings placed underground or the roots of a tree. Hydrovac excavations and air vacuum excavation are two alternatives to traditional digging.
Trend Towards Vacuum Excavation
The modern diggers are resorting to benign digging also know as Vacuum Excavation. This is an eco-friendly and non-invasive method of digging. The vicinity of the affected area is least affected as an outcome. The collector unit accumulates all the excavated soil preventing unnecessary piling of dirt and thus facilitates the clean and tidy activity. Any hidden underground wiring or pipe is undisturbed by this method. Any inconvenient place or position can be easily quarried inside building, underground pits, highly congested places, etc.
Being a machine driven method, it is the epitome of accuracy in drawing trenches which can be hardly manifested by traditional methods. It is the complete solution to multiple engineering problems related to unearthing through one wet service, so it saves the trouble of hiring a large labor force and the expense on it. Hydrovac excavations require the hiring of labor with proficient knowledge in operating the device and provides reliable service with requisite technical expertise.
Why Choose Air Vacuum Excavation?
It’s an economical method sucks into the air to apply pressure on the soil to scoop out the dirt without disturbing any pre-installed connections as there is no mechanical blow in this process. It is majorly suited when the scooped out ground needs to be refilled by the earth. The debris tank is responsible for collecting all the soil scraped from the pothole and as soon as the internal fixing of the pipeline or electrical wiring is done then the content of the debris tank is stuffed back into the pit. It can generate lower pressure, so it caters to low power operation. Loose soil generally needs deep pressure excavation. Any delicate installment underneath also needs low pressure to avoid incurring any damages.
Why Choose Hydrovac Excavations?
It’s less economical as compared to air vacuum excavation as it needs water which is a relatively less abundant resource, however, hydrovac excavations have the advantage of high-speed vacuum and very high pressure to pull out the earth at any place for any application. In case of hard soil, hydrovac excavation helps in softening the ground for hassle-free scraping out this can be a mammoth task for mechanical excavators. In the case of frozen land hot water is applied to defrost and soften the ground for easy quarrying. The apparatus used for excavation is lubricated due to the use of water prevents wearing of its parts.
