If you are looking to dig a sizable amount of earth, it is worth looking into non-destructive digging services.
There are various reasons why non-destructive digging services are an effective way to identify and excavate around underground assets. Read on to discover just some of the ways that utility locators use non-destructive digging techniques to enhance their operations…
As technology has advanced over the years, the range of services offered using non-destructive digging methods has increased. These include the following services:
- Culvert and drain clean-out
- Potholing of services
- Sign and pole installation (including power poles)
- Culverts and cattle guards
- Slot trenching
- Underground line exposing
- Installing new underground facilities
- Digging under existing structures
- Trenching across conflicting services
- Material/debris removal
- Pipeline tie-ins/maintenance
- Sludge removal
- Extraction of wet and dry materials
- Pit & conduit cleaning
It should also be noted that the range of services provided by non-destructive digging services is not limited to the above. New techniques are constantly being mastered by experienced non-destructive digging professionals.
This form of non-destructive excavation ultimately saves time and money whilst also allowing project managers peace of mind in the fact that there is a reduced chance of personal injury. Additionally, the risk of damage to underground assets such as electric cables, water pipes, and gas lines is reduced.
The use of non-destructive digging tools such as a hydro vacuum excavation truck is also far more efficient, as there are no weather limitations involved and can be done in all environments. Digging with high-pressure water and air also results in a far cleaner and refined result in comparison to other mechanical digging methods. The use of a vac truck results in a clean hole/trench with no mess, such as unsightly mounds of dirt present afterwards.
The lower cost of using vacuum excavation allows operators to dig with precision and perform work with ease since it is a less invasive way of conducting activities such as potholing and pipe detection.
The use of a suction hose and pressurised water makes service location and non-destructive digging a reality. It also increases the functionality of digging efforts, as it can uncover pipelines and clean and remove debris with ease.
In comparison to traditional digging efforts, non-destructive vacuum excavation services are a cost-effective solution. It is because manual digging by hand is not necessary, saving a lot of time in addition to the labour costs associated with digging. Additionally, there are no delays related to the weather or limitations as to where the technology can be used.
