DISAB Vacuum Unit

Our DISAB vacuum technology is capable of removing all types of wet and dry sludge, slurry, filter cakes and sediments, as well as powders, granular materials, aggregates, ash and soil.
The DISAB features a telescopic boom with extension pipes to reduce manual handling for high level work. The machine also benefits from a low noise level, (75 dBA at 7 metres distance), and a unique filter solution that reduces dust emissions to only 1.3 mg/m. The tank has a gross volume of 12,000 litres, while collected material can be discharged by tilting the tank or pneumatically through a hose.
This type of machine is typically used in the following industries:
  • Steel
  • Cement
  • Powder
  • Heating
  • Paper and Pulp
  • Wastewater treatment plants
  • Pumping stations
  • Other industrial tanks

Vacuum Excavation to locate Underground Utilities

Another application of our unit is to assist in the location of buried underground utilities. The vacuum loading capability of our units, when used on conjunction with compressed air or pressurised water to loosen the ground, enables us to “dig“ for buried utility cables, without the risk of striking same with conventional excavators.

This system of excavation is frequently being employed by utility companies who are trying to locate buried cables or excavate bore holes or trial pits in contaminated sites, in the absence of utility maps. It is an extremely safe system of excavation as cables are not torn or broken by hydraulic excavation processes.
