Vacuum Truck services include:
Holocene provides vacuum truck and air knife services to expose buried utilities prior to drilling. Air knifing utilizes high-velocity air to penetrate, expand and break up soil up to 8 ft. deep. The soil is then removed using a powerful vacuum.
The majority of subsurface investigations occur at commercial and industrial sites where numerous underground utilities may be present. During drilling, there is a risk that subsurface utilities will be encountered and damaged. When utilities are damaged, there could possibly be loss of services to the site building, equipment damage, or injury including loss of life to the equipment operator and by-standers.
Vacuum truck and knife services decrease the likelihood of such incidents. Holocene crews can clear the drilling locations in advance to as deep as 8 feet below the surface depending on the soil materials. Our vacuum units are mounted both on trucks and trailers for ease of use in a variety of conditions and project applications.
In addition to safely digging around utilities to mark boring locations, we can also do trenching and set shallow wells.
