Steps of the vacuum excavation Sydney process
By: Sure Search
Vacuum excavation is a non-destructive excavation process; it uses air running at high pressures and speed together with a suction-vacuum to remove the top layer of the soil/ground.
Steps of the vacuum excavation process
Vacuum excavation trucks are installed with the
• Compressed air lance;
• the suction for the vacuum;
• multiple air vehicle fans;
• Wastage storage chamber.
1. Survey the area where you want to dig
Before you start digging, you should check out the area; this will help you to determine the amount of pressure you need for the digging. The survey will also give you a better idea of the utilities present underneath.
2. Fit the excavation truck over the area where you want to dig
Place the truck in a perpendicular position over the place you want to dig. Then you can adjust the boom to be directly under the area to be 'pressured.' You should set the crash to about 6-8 inches over the area for digging; this allows for enough space between the nozzle and the ground.
For air vacuum excavation
Step 1: Turn up the suction
After successfully placing your excavation trucks, turn on the vacuum fans. Turning on the fans commences the suction process; where all the soil materials will forcefully move up through the hose into the storage chamber.
Step 2: Softening the soil
If the area you are digging has a more rigid surface, you can use the air jet lance to break up and soften the ground.
If Hydraulic Vacuums are used
Step 1: Loosening up the soil
After the survey processes, you should insert a water band into the ground to make the soil loosen up; use water to form slurries with the soil.
Step 2: Suction of the slurry
The next step is to suck up the slurry through the hose; you can do this by switching on the pump that controls the vacuum hose.
During suction, it is very likely that garbage/debris will mix with the slurries that the machine sucks up. After the digging, you can compress the unwanted materials in a controlled area, and store them in the garbage storage compartment for later disposal.
