Just as many municipalities are turning to hydro excavation as the preferred method to expose, locate, and dig trenches, hydrovacs are becoming just as important in midstream and downstream oil and gas applications.
Hydro excavation is a safe alternative to traditional shovel or backhoe digging methods of soil and material removal in the oil and gas industry. Hydro excavation is also an environmentally friendly excavation method that protects existing utilities, pipelines, and cables from being damaged by traditional mechanical or destructive excavation methods.
KAISER PREMIER’s CV Series Hydrovacs are purpose-built for difficult applications. The addition of the CV Series Liquid Ring Hydrovac adds another level of safety when working with combustible materials. KAISER has been developing liquid ring pump technology since the 80s. Our KWP was the first light construction liquid ring pump for mobile applications. Liquid ring pumps use an eccentric rotor to produce a ring of water using centrifugal power. Volume changes in the rotor chambers assure that air is sucked in and compressed.
The KWP 7000i liquid ring pump is highly resistance to dirt particles and is ideally suited to vacuuming wet and dry material. The contact-free rotor assures extremely quiet running and a long-life cycle. The KWP causes no contamination of the pump exhaust air by lubricants and oils. The oil-bath bearings require no maintenance. Fuel efficiency is also improved during operation.
