Vac-Ex is a non-intrusive method of excavation that uses compressed air to loosen up the ground, followed by suction to remove the loose material. A Vac-Ex machine can generate a powerful stream of air with an operator controlling the intake nozzle, providing full control of the excavation while they remain at a safe distance. This method significantly reduces spoil and dust because all of the extracted material is sucked directly into sealed collection chambers on the machine, making it particularly suitable for use in confined spaces.
Vac-Ex machines have a wide range of applications across UK construction projects, including:

When a large housing developer approached us with the challenge of locating a 6-inch gas main on a new construction site, we saw an opportunity to showcase the capabilities of our new Vac-Ex AIR-VAC unit. With its compact size and advanced technology, our mini-tracked excavator swiftly and accurately excavated a 35-meter trench, allowing us to determine the location of the gas main without any service disruptions. This efficient solution saved time and money for our client while minimizing environmental impact.
