The Science Behind Vacuum Excavations

When you need help in clearing an area of ground that has a number of complicating factors, from stones to cables, you may want to consider using vacuum excavations.

This is designed to prevent damage to items in the soil while still keeping it clear. Before you talk to Lambert Locations, you need to be able to understand exactly how this process works, and why it is the best way to deal with difficult terrain.

Using water pressure

The main power behind a vacuum soil removal machine is high-pressure water or air. This loosens the soil, and will remove it from the surface of areas including rocks, cables and other elements in the soil which need to be preserved. The blast of high-pressure liquid or air will force the soil out of the area you are cleaning, and can also help to break up large clods of earth.

Vacuuming the soil

Once the soil has been made liquid, it can then be removed using the vacuum hose. Just like a domestic vacuum, the soil is sucked up into a container, in this case a specially created tank. You can then have the soil deposited in other areas of your site, or have it removed completely with the help of Lambert Locations.

Taking control of your dig

 The reason that many construction and site-working teams choose to use vacuum excavators is that they have a low-impact effect upon the ground. It is non-destructive, so it can be used to great effect in areas where there are electrical or TV cables, or gas or water pipes. In areas where there are conservation concerns, the vacuum method can be preferred to ensure that the ground is not harmed during the excavation works.
