Can the exhaust from the vacuum pump be captured for treatment?

Yes. Our liquid ring units (T1500, T2500) have a 6" or 8" camlock fitting on the exhaust of the water tank. This fitting allows the exhaust to be captured through a vapor scrubber, carbon box, thermal oxidizer, etc. Ideally this downstream equipment does not provide any exhaust restriction, though a backpressure of a few psi

Help! I don’t have vacuum on the end of my hose!

First, make sure all manways and hatches are closed tight, on both the vacuum unit and any collection tank or vacuum box that you are filling.

How do Triton Vacuum Systems compare to blower-based machines?

Blower packages are good for dry bulk handling materials. If the customer is only going to use the system for dry materials the unit will likely perform satisfactorily. Most people doing that type of work are not concerned with the heat or the noise, and must accept the level of maintenance required. In other

How much diesel fuel do Triton vacuum systems burn?

Depending on load, the Triton liquid ring trailers (T2000 or T2500) consume between 7-10 gallons per hour. The fuel tank size is in the range of 90-100 gallons, and are sized that fueling should only be required once per shift. And remember, less expensive off-road diesel may be used.

How much do common hoses weigh?

Flex hoses are obviously lighter than tank truck hose. A 4" flex hose may weigh 1.8 lbs/ft, while a 4" tank truck hose might weigh 3.3 lbs/ft (of course, this is empty, and doesn't count the weight of the connection fittings). Going to a 6" hose increases weight a lot...a 6" tank truck hose
