Vacuum Excavation

The process of vacuum excavation essentially means that heavily compacted material such as sludge, filter media and other solid products such as cement, ask and dust can be excavated by suction.  Also in recent years, the process has been utilised by AQS in the suction excavation of ground to uncover buried utilities on road crossings and industrial sites.

The main advantage with using this process is that the risk of damaging sub surface utilities with conventional excavation machinery is completely eliminated.  Using our DISAB vacuum excavation machines, we can safely uncover utility services such as water mains, telecom, ESB and gas lines, and other service lines.  The below images illustrate the types of excavations that can be carried out by AQS.
