Dry suction excavation is the newest innovation to have come from the construction industry. Companies like Gear Equipment are masters of the craft, offering several vac trucks that have proprietary technology to complete wet and dry soil extraction.
Let’s take a look at the green benefits of dry suction excavation technology.

New Way to Excavate
Dry suction in construction is a relatively new kind of excavation process, and it uses air to collect soil and similar debris. Unlike traditional excavation techniques, it’s an evolved and modern solution. Innovative techniques are more convenient for all parties and produce minimal waste and follow-through maintenance.
Underground or Daylight Utilities are Safe
Because of its characteristic, dry suction trucks can look for and expose utility lines faster and with minimal risk compared to hand digging or using a backhoe. Air will not damage any installed daylight utility compared to water. This means there will be fewer repairs and extra work needed to continue with the project.
No Water Needed
Traditional excavation equipment typically uses hundreds of gallons of water, depending on the project scale. Hydrovac operations lead to muddy sites, making it more difficult for the workers to navigate or do their job. Furthermore, personnel will have to wait for the soil to dry to review or test them. As a side note, the byproduct will be reusable since it’s dry, which also adds to the environmental-friendly aspect.
Vacuum trucks by Gear Equipment are more efficient compared to traditional vehicles. They tend to be more mobile and produce a faster rate of suction. This is good news to all concerned- the business owner or property who wants quick and steady work, pedestrians, and workers, just to name a few. Businesses will experience less disruption and downtime, and the project has a greater chance to be completed sooner.
