A vac truck or vactor truck is an industrial vehicle equipped with a tank, a suction hose, and vacuum system. They are often used by construction and waste management companies to keep areas clean and for transporting materials. They can also be used as a way to excavate. A high-pressure jet of water breaks down the soil and a suction hose vacuums the residue. Vac trucks are used by Frank Gay Commercial for lift station and sewer maintenance because of their ability to suction debris and water.
So how do they work? Vac trucks are also referred to as vacuum trucks since the pump it is equipped with creates a vacuum inside the tank by pulling air out. Valves are used to create suction as the vacuum inside the tank tries to balance itself with the outside atmosphere. This allows the truck to suck up liquid and solid materials. Thanks to vac trucks, we can avoid septic emergencies and keep our industry zones and cities clean.
