Do you a confined space that needs cleaning or clearing? Confined spaces are not only difficult to access but they can also be very hazardous. Let’s take a look at the best method to use in these situations.
Confined spaces are completely or partially enclosed areas that have restricted entry. Often there is a lack of oxygen or a space that contains atmospheric hazards such as toxic gases.
In areas where machinery cannot gain access to a confined space, vacuum loading and excavation is an extremely economical and efficient solution.
It allows work to be carried out safely and efficiently with minimum risk to workers or property. Materials are vacuum loaded from a vessel or open restricted space and transferred to a holding tank for safe disposal.
Work may be undertaken on a worksite or in a public space.
Confined spaces may or may not be big enough for workers to enter and include areas such as:
Access to confined spaces is usually required for cleaning, inspection, repair, maintenance, or construction.
Vacuum loading services are employed where access is limited to remove materials such as waste stored in pits or tanks, for pit cleaning, during plant maintenance, or in flooding situations.
Cleaning of confined spaces such as drains, cesspits, and sumps requires specialised knowledge and equipment such as advanced, self-contained vacuum loading trucks for the safe removal of materials which may include liquids, lump or particulate solids, or gases.
Some materials may be hazardous such as flammable or explosive materials, chemicals or materials with carbonaceous particulates.
Working in confined spaces can be extremely dangerous for workers with high risk from things like trench subsidence and collapse or exposure to contaminated atmospheric substances.
The risk of potential financial burdens can be minimised by making use of qualified and highly experienced technicians and equipment to gain entry to confined spaces.
Using vacuum loading in confined spaces:
Vacuum loading services are excellent for the removal or recovery of wet or dry heavy products such as:
Pressure Works Water Jet & Vacuum Services utilises innovative excavation and vacuum technologies to provide safe and efficient, none-invasive, and non-destructive vacuum loading services right across the Melbourne suburbs.
All our vacuum trucks are EPA registered and licensed to collect, transport, and safely dispose of non-hazardous and hazardous materials.
Our vacuum loading services are particularly effective in confined spaces and our highly skilled and experienced technicians are fully trained in the safety procedures, environmental protection, and safety requirements when working in confined spaces.
We have a range of complementary services to manage your projects such as hydro excavation, non-destructive digging, liquid waste removal, drain cleaning, heavy-duty suction trucks to suck up sludge and debris.
Our hydro excavation services and non-destructive diggings services offer a safe and efficient alternative to mechanical digging.
