Industrial Vactor TrucksContact All Storm Drains Inc.
A vacuum truck or vacuum tanker is a tank truck that has a pump and a tank connected to a vacuum system. The pump is designed to pneumatically suck liquids, sludges, solids, or the like from a location (often underground) into the tank of the truck. The objective is to enable transport of the liquid or solid material via road to another location for dumping. Vacuum trucks or vactor trucks transport the collected material to a treatment or disposal site, for example a sewage treatment plant or county dumping location. Vacuum trucks can be equipped with a high pressure pump if they are used to clean out sewers from sand. This is the kind of pump All Storm Drains Inc. uses to service its customers.
An Industrial Vacuum Truck can be configured to be a direct belt drive, or a hydraulic drive system. There are two different ways to mount the pump: either directly on the truck with the vacuum drive powered by the truck motor, or on the trailer with an independent motor. The second option with the independent motor is more complicated and not commonly used. It has the advantage of potentially having the pump closer to the septic tank. It is also able to use the negative pressure suction side of the pump as well as the positive pressure side to pump sludge over longer distances or lift it higher into the tank.
The suction hoses are typically 2 to 4 inches (5.1 to 10.2 cm) in diameter with 3 inches (7.6 cm) being the norm. The possible length depends on various factors mainly related to the lift and other pressure losses. It is usually impossible to extend it beyond 50 meters (160 ft). An inherent suction limitation of all suction pumps is that they can only lift a liquid through utilizing atmospheric pressure. For pure water the theoretical maximum lift is approximately 10.3 meters (34 ft). However, due to the viscosity of fecal sludge it is possible to mix air into it either by sucking close from the surface or by adding air with a compressor through a separate hose. Through this process, the overall density of the sludge/air mixture can be reduced below that of pure water and thus a higher lift (10–15 meters (33–49 ft)) can be reached under optimal conditions. Other factors affecting the possible lift and total length of the suction hose are that single stage vacuum pumps only reach a 85-90% partial vacuum, and that small air leakages, pipe friction losses, and the viscosity of the liquid further reduce the vactor truck's ability to lift.
Other names used for "vacuum trucks" are as follows: "vacuum tanker", "Sucker truck" or "Sewer Sucker", "hydro-vac", or "vac-trucks". Slang terms include: "honey truck", "honey sucker", and "honeywagon", and possibly "honey bucket".

Vacuum trucks are used by town and municipal governments, as well as commercial entities around the world. Vacuum trucks are used in the petroleum industry, for cleaning of storage tanks and spills. They are also an important part of drilling oil, and natural gas wells, as they are located at the drilling site. Vacuum trucks are used to remove drilling mud, drilling cuttings, cement, spills, and for removal of brine water from production tanks. They dispose of this in sump pits, treatment plants or if within safe levels may be spread out in a farmer's field.
Vacuum trucks are also used for exposing underground utilities. The ground is jetted with water, and the vacuum truck sucks up the muddy product. This exposes the buried utility without the possibility of damage, as would be possible if a digging machine were used. This process is also known as hydroexcavation.

Normally a tanker is emptied by gravity. There is a possibility to pressure up the vacuum tank in order to "pressure out" the liquid quicker or against a small difference in level. But that procedure is not good for the equipment and is therefore done only in special situations.
The regular discharge time for a tanker of 8–9 cubic meters (280–320 cu ft) is about 15 minutes (or 7–10 minutes to unload a tanker of 4,000 litres (880 imp gal; 1,100 US gal). The outlet is typically 4 to 6 inches (10 to 15 cm) in diameter. The discharge time depends on the thickness of the sludge, the size of the outlet valve, hose, the amount of garbage in the fecal sludge, and how often the driver has to stop to clean the dump screen.

All Strom Drains Inc. comes through during all emergencies. I highly recommend using All Strom Drains Inc. when in need of any sewage, flood, or drainage system. In my situation, I called a major Long Island sewage company while having an emergency crisis. When calling this sewage company, I was told to wait until the morning, when the morning came I was called and asked if I could re-schedule. All Storm Drains Inc. was on the scene examining the situation within 20 minutes, of the call (10pm) and made me feel completely relaxed and at ease with knowledge of the problem and expertise in the area of dry well, which was the area of concern. All Storm Drains Inc. took all matters seriously and delivered immediately. I will recommend All Strom Drains Inc. to anyone I know in need of sewage, drainage, or flooding issues. Thank you All Strom Drains Inc.
