Future Industrial Services Vacuum Power

Vacuum removal of materials means less manual handling, and the ability to access product that machinery cannot reach. Our equipment can vacuum and discharge by blowing, tipping and high-tipping materials (From fine powders to heavy sludges)

vacuum-power-filling-operationsRemoving spillage and build up by vacuum prevents the material re-circulating which occurs with brushing or air-lancing. As the material is drawn up the vacuum pipe, fresh air is drawn to the work place – this provides better working conditions for the operators.

Recognised by Disab as a specialist in the use of vacuum trucks, we are regularly consulted on technical issues for our operational expertise.

Our fleet was selected to give us a wide range of capabilities- we have standard suck and blow LN200 machines, plus High-tip units, and articulated / Split Shaft P210 units for road haulage.

LN200 Rigid Units – the workhorses of our fleet. Ideal for site work all the units deliver high performance suction capability. Once loaded the material can be tipped or blown as required by the site.

LN200 Hi-tip Units – the versatile solution provider. All the features of the LN200 rigid with the added function of being able to high tip into skips, big bags and IBCs.

LN200 Articulated unit and P210 Split shaft unit – The haulers. The same vacuum performance as the rest of the fleet but with enhanced road haulage capacity up to 15m3 or 15 tonnes.

Vacuum Separator Skip – Enhances road haulage capacity working with a Disab it gives an additional 14m3 of volume.

LN35 Bagging Machine – compact 7.5t unit able to vacuum and bag materials quickly and efficiently – ideal for smaller volume tasks where a LN200 would be too large or not commercially viable.
