The Power of Hydro Excavation
To get an idea of the power that is used in the hydro excavation process think of a standard shop vac that is used around the home. It has a vacuum power of around 80 to 100 CFM. Seneca Companies’ 15 and 18 cyd wet/dry vacuum trucks deliver 5,500 to 6,000 CFM of vacuum at 28” HG (mercury).
The Waste Solutions team offers the perfect solution for when mechanical excavation is limited due to space limitations or when unknown or known sensitive subsurface utilities may be present. With our fleet of powerful 5,000 and 6,000 CFM wet/dry vacuum trucks complemented by our variable pressure water equipment, we can effectively remove materials around manholes, tanks, sewers, pipelines, utility lines, conduits or alongside buildings or structures where conventional excavation would be of higher risk or destructive.
