Vacuum trailers are constructed with a tank on a chassis. The tank is designed with a pump to pneumatically load sludge, slurry, solids and liquids through suction lines. Most vacuum trailers use a rotary vane vacuum pump and 3 inch lines. Some trailers have hydraulic drive systems, while others have direct belt drive systems. The pump may have an independent motor or it may use the truck motor for power.

History of Vacuum Trailers

Vacuum pumps have been used for hundreds of years. The first was invented in 1654 by Otto von Guericke. His crude version of the vacuum pump was replaced by a mercury displacement pump designed by Heinrich Geissler in 1855. The rotary vane vacuum pump was a development that revolutionized the industry. This pump pulls all of the air out of a confined space to create negative pressure at the intake opening. The negative pressure creates powerful suction that can pick up just about anything that will fit through the intake tubes.

Vacuum Trailer Uses

Vacuum trailers are commonly used for sanitary waste disposal, especially emptying septic tanks and cleaning out sewers. The waste from a vacuum trailer is typically emptied into a wastewater treatment plant, a sewer network or a composting pit.

Vacuum trailers are very common in the petroleum industry. They are used for cleaning out tanks where petroleum is stored. They are also used for cleaning spills. Vacuum trailers are also commonly seen at natural gas and oil drilling sites, as they are used for drilling cuttings, removing brine water, cleaning spills and removing mud at the drilling site.

A vacuum trailer is very useful for exposing utilities underground. The ground is saturated with water and the mud is sucked up by the vacuum truck. This is an excellent way to expose utility lines that have been buried because no damage is caused to the lines.

Common features to look for in vacuum trailers include:

  • Hose trays
  • Multiple valves
  • Air-ride suspension
  • Top loading
  • Ladder
  • Tool box
  • Polished aluminum exterior
