Vacuum Trucks in Day 1

What are Vacuum Trucks?

Vacuum trucks are heavy vehicles equipped with vacuum tubes and a holding tank, and are often used to handle large-scale liquid and wastewater clean-up.

Many fields of industry use vacuum trucks to complete jobs like sewer and septic system maintenance, water and debris clean-up during hydro-excavation and drilling jobs, and emergency responses involving hazardous materials or oil spills.

These trucks are able to do their job thanks to a simple but powerful vacuum created in the truck’s holding tank. A pump is used to remove air from the tank, then suction hoses are used to fill the vacuum with liquids, sludge, or debris. The pressure of the vacuum is cancelled out once the tank is filled up, or when the pump is turned off.
