HYDRO EXCAVATING TECHNIQUES
Hydro Excavation is beneficial to many different types of industry settings. When safety and mitigation of damage and risk are involved, it outweights traditional excavating techniques. While not an all-encompassing list, some of the more common industries that Industrial Hydro Excavating service include the following:
Daylighting is a term used to describe the uncovering and exposing of underground utilities and pipelines to daylight. .
Slot trenching is digging narrow trenches. This is commonly needed for installing pipes, cables, signs, posts and other utilities underground.
Pot holing is the process of digging a test hole to expose underground utilities. This can check the lines vertically and horizontally. They are usually 6-8 inches in diameter.
Safely locate buried utilities, pipelines, and underground blockages.
Tunneling is using the hydrovac to create a tunnel. This could be under a sidewalk or under the ground to repair a foundation or water line.
Making small, clean holes for visual inspection of underground utilities.
This is when the hydrovac truck can not get to the area that needs exposed. IHE is able to park the vehicle several feet away, connect the longer hoses, and dig away from the truck. This allows IHE to get into places not easily accessible due to powerlines or other obstacles.
Hydro Excavation is beneficial to many different types of industry settings. Some of the more common industries that Industrial Hydro Excavating services include the following:
Hydro Excavation saves time and money compared to hand excavation of telecommunication and other utilities.
The non-destructive nature of Hydro Excavation makes it possible to safely expose power cables without risking any cuts.
OIL & GAS
Hyrdo Excavation helps safely preserve the underground infrastructure of Oil and Gas lines.
Municipal right-of-ways with congested underground infrastructures are the perfect scenarios for Hydro Excavation.
Down time and delays are avoided by quickly and safely exposing underground pipes while negating any damage risks.
Damage to pipes carrying toxic chemicals is a huge safety risk. Hydro Excavation takes the danger out of the job.
