Did you know that an industrial vacuum truck has many uses? These handy machines have the capability to do a lot of jobs that would otherwise need to be done by hand. They save time, and time equals money. Vacuum trucks also make things a lot safer.  A typical vacuum truck includes a large tank for storing liquids and semi-solids, and solids, a strong vacuum pump,  and a series of hoses that can reach into both large and confined spaces. You’ve probably seen them driving down the road, but never actually realized what a vacuum truck is and what it can do. Earlier in this article we mentioned that an industrial vacuum truck has many uses.

For example, a vacuum truck is the perfect machine for pumping out sumps and sewers based on its vacuuming power, and ability to store large volumes in its storage tank. The same basically holds true for septic tank pumping. It’s important to keep septic tanks operating correctly. It’s also important to avoid raw sewage, waste water, and waste materials from seeping into the ground. If that happens, it tends to cause serious health problems for humans and pets in the area. An industrial vacuum truck is also used to clean grease traps. In essence, cleaning a restaurant’s grease trap is an incredibly hard task unless you hire a professional vacuum truck operator.

Vacuum trucks are also used for environmental protection purposes. For example, after a storm or other environmental based emergency situation, the machine can be utilized to remove water and other debris. Cave-ins occur in many areas across New England. A vacuum truck is helpful in this regard because it has the ability to remove both water and mud. That goes a long way in helping rescue crews during emergency situations. In addition, a great deal of people become trapped during storms and floods. They need to be rescued quickly, and oftentimes the only way to do that is to remove significant amounts of water as quickly as possible. A vacuum truck is the perfect device to do this.

Last but certainly not least on our list of industrial vacuum truck uses is the removal of non-hazardous waste materials. A vacuum truck has the ability to both remove non-hazardous bulk waste, and also clean up non-hazardous spills. That way, workers do not need to handle the materials by hand, which is safer and far more cost effective.
