Hydro Vacuum, Air Vacuum, or Mechanical Excavation

What is the difference?

Because every job is different in size and scope, KANTEX owns and operates both air and hydro vacuum excavation equipment as well as a wide range mechanical equipment like trenchers, excavators, and auger rigs.

While we pride ourselves on our methods of vacuum excavation we understand that there is often a need for mechanical excavation equipment. All excavation processes have their advantages and disadvantages; we will be happy to assist you in deciding which is most appropriate and cost effective for your particular project. 

Vacuum excavation is a safe and economical way to excavate in areas potentially congested with underground utilities for depth information, coating/pipe inspection, soil-to-air transitions, or for our process of remotely installing test stations, anodes, or bonds. Because every job is different in size and scope, KANTEX owns and operates both air and hydro vacuum excavation equipment. Both processes have their advantages and disadvantages; we will be happy to assist you in deciding which is most appropriate for your particular project.

While there are disadvantages to using traditional means of excavation with machanical equipement, their are many advantages to help save time and to get through more difficult soils and rock.
