NON DESTRUCTIVE EXCAVATION
Non-destructive Excavation is a specialised treatment that combines high-pressure water and a vacuum to break apart earth in a controlled manner. This is a safe process, that doesn’t cause any unnecessary damage to existing underground utilities or infrastructure.
HOW DOES NON-DESTRUCTIVE EXCAVATION WORK?
Non-Destructive digging is sometimes known as hydro excavation, and it works by blasting earth or other surfaces with high pressure water and air. This mimics the effect of traditional mechanical digging although it won’t impact surrounding areas, underground assets, or even tree roots.
Vacuum Excavation is known to be the safest locating method to locate or expose underground utilities.
Vacuum excavation, suction excavation, or hydro-vac is also called Non-Destructive-Digging. These techniques are known to be the safest methods over conventional excavation in order to locate underground utilities.
LOCATE AND PROTECT UNDERGROUND ASSETS
Underground services including power and telecommunication cables are usually not always where the plans show them to be. Using our VM400 is the easiest way to locate these services and physically see where they are before drilling, trenching, or doing other excavation work.
