Whether it is civil engineering or building, vacuum excavators are now a common fixture on site. The scope for vacuum excavation applications on construction sites is broad. Engineers are continuously finding new ways for vacuum excavation to contribute to a more effective site. Some examples include:
- Foundations and deep excavations – LMD’s vacuum excavators operate effectively at depths up to 18m.
- Slit trenches
- SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems)
- Debris removal – LMD’s triple fan units can remove debris with the nozzle operator located at a distance of up to 150m from the truck unit.
- This can include the removal of construction debris from the upper storeys of mid-rise apartment blocks.
