Hydrovacing is a non-destructive procedure used for excavation. Hydrovac units excavate earth by using high-pressure water to loosen the ground, and a powerful vacuum to extract the debris and store it in a single tank mounted on the truck. Excavation via Hydrovac is effective on a variety of soil types, including clay, gravel and sand.

Hydrovac units are versatile and can be used in a wide range of environmental conditions, including harsh Canadian winters when the ground is frozen. For this reason, hydrovacs are depended on in a number of industries, including:

  • Oil and Gas
  • Industrial
  • Construction
  • Utilities

As mentioned, Hydrovac units are capable of performing a wide variety of jobs, such as:

  • Buried utility exposure
