Air Knife Excavation

Vacuum excavation is defined as a means of soil extraction using a vacuum to break apart material with pressurized air. This method of excavation is commonly referred to as soft excavation technology or air knifing and is commonly accepted as being the equivalent or safer than hand digging within the tolerance zone around underground facilities.

Vacuum excavation is a non-mechanical, non-destructive way of safely exposing buried utilities. The process allows for workers on site to stay safe on the surface and eliminates accidental line damage and trench cave-ins. Physically locating is the only true method of finding the accurate depth of existing utilities.

Our vacuum excavation operation is accustomed to working in multiple types of environments with a sensitivity towards existing site conditions.
