Uses of Hydrovac Trucks in Maintaining Oil and Gas Pipeline


The maintenance of oil and gas pipelines is extremely crucial and hydrovac is the best way to dig the land safely. Traditional ways of digging can  accidentally damage pipes causing cracks and ruptures. Hydrovac trucks, on the other hand, use high-pressure water jets for the excavation process.

Frequently Asked Questions


Which industries use hydrovac services?

These facilities are used by construction companies, municipalities, and oil & gas companies.

What happens to the dirt and water that get sucked up during the hydrovac process?
The water mixes with the dirt to create slurry, which gets deposited in a holding tank. This mixture is then disposed in a safe and environment-friendly manner.

Does the pressurised water cause damage to the underground structures?
It is a safe process as it clears the dirt around the structures.

What are the other uses of this equipment?
Hydrovacs can be used for trenching, clearing culverts, cleaning building foundations and draining reservoirs.

How is the hydrovac excavation technique better than the regular methods?
Using pressurised water cleans and excavates the infrastructure in less time. It is a safe technique with less risk of cutting through other pipelines. This method can be used during winters instead of traditional digging.


How much time does hydrovac excavation take?
It depends on the size and complexity of your project.
