The purchase of a Vacmasters System 4000, “The worlds most powerful air excavation
system” allows Eiicon to provide the safest and most efficient asset
exposure and location system available.
This unit has the competitive advantage of
using air as the excavation medium for the majority of work situations. This
negates the possibility of damage to the assets being exposed and will allow
work on sensitive utility assets such as high voltage and low voltage power cables
and on fibre optic telecommunications cables. The soft dig technology also
allows non destructive excavation around fragile pipelines and conduits.
The use of air as the excavation medium
also allows for the removed soil to be re-used as fill for the excavated site
negating the need for disposal of soil.
The ability to operate and excavate up to 50 metres from the plant allows access to sensitive excavation sites such as
Zone and Terminal substations, inside buildings, and in environmentally sensitive
use of pressurised air and vacuum allows excavation in and around sensitive
environmental areas with minimal impact on the surrounding area. The ability to
dig in and around tree root systems without significant damage to the root
system is one example of use. With the ability to excavate significant
distances from the plant impact on the area can be limited to foot traffic.
*Sampling of soils can be undertaken with
remote containment into 220 litre drums with our barrel top interceptor unit.
