Intract recently expanded its fleet of vacuum trucks with the purchase of two new Jamieson 8×4 Combo Isuzu vacuum trucks.
The two new vehicles will support our local and state-wide South Australian emergency response and industrial cleaning contracts with SA Power Networks, SA Water, Australian Rail Track Corporation, AGL, BHP, the environmental Protection Agency among others.
The new vacuum trucks were selected in part for their shorter lengths which allows them to operate in constrained sites that our other models were not able to achieve. Despite their small sizes, they are still capable of transporting 10,000L of liquid waste materials from sites.
Each truck is fitted with dual 1500cfm (42m³/min) liquid ring pumps that allows for variation in the vacuum to efficiently extract water, hydrocarbons, thick sludge and other liquid materials of varying density and viscosity.
This feature saves on both fuel and time taken to complete remediation works. A 5000psi (34MPa) high-pressure hydro unit allows for fast and efficient site clean ups after vacuuming is complete.
The two units will services different regions. One will be active in the north operating between Port Pirie, Ceduna and Port Lincoln. The other will service Adelaide and the southern regions down to Mount Gambier.
The vacuum trucks have been co-branded as McMahon Services and Intract Australia.
