Industrial Vacuum Trucks, with a vacuum pump capacity of 2,000 m³/hour (air flow) or more are commonly known as Super Suckers. The vacuum trucks to handle liquids and sludge are also called Wet Industrial Vacuum Trucks and do not have a filter compartment. The liquid / sludge is collected in a 3000 US gallon carbon steel or stainless steel tank.
The industrial vacuum trucks are mainly used for:
- Sludge removal.
- Cleaning of Storage Tanks.
- Transport of (finished) Products (in stainless steel tanks).
In combination with a clam-flow hopper or separator the wet industrial vacuum truck can also handle dry materials such as catalyst and molecular sieve. Most of the industrial vacuum trucks are equipped with a jetting pump to clean sump pits, sewer lines and can assist in fast dumping & cleaning the vacuum tank while it is tipped and rear cover opened. Since 2000 we have built super sucker equipment on tractor heads in combination with 7,500 US gallon vacuum trailers, in order to reduce transportation time. These vacuum trailers are ideal for oil transfers.
