Vacuum excavation or Soft Digging has become common with the enhanced safety culture of our utility companies and because the excavation equipment has become more powerful and efficient than ever. To aid in breaking up soils and speeding their feed into the vacuum hose, air and water can be used.
Air is the most common method for two reasons. First air is compressible and therefore will flow around a wire, conduit or other sensitive structure during the excavation process. Also air keeps the excavated spoil dry so that it can be used for backfill immediately. We use large orifice air lances driven by large air compressors, 750 CFM or larger, to greatly speed excavation efficiency.
Water works very well in breaking up soils and speeds excavation, but care must be used when excavating around electrical cables and non metallic conduit as damage can be caused by the high pressure stream. Spoil excavated with water generallly does not work well for immediate backfill. If the spoil will be stockpiled for some time, the water will evaporate and the spoil will be good for backfilling at a later time. Point's Vactor HXX has a 1300 gallon water tank on board to keep a ready supply of water for this purpose.
Deep Vacuum / High Flow
Thanks to the Hibon positive displacement blower, the Vactor HXX produces 28" Hg and produces 5150 CFM giving the ability to excavate at incredible depths and over long distances through vacuum hose. Before you know it, the 12 cubic yard dump body is filled up.
