Air Excavator

Air excavation uses compressed air to remove soil (or sand, ore, wood chips, gravel) and dig deep holes or trenches.

There are multiple benefits with air excavation:

  • the use of suction instead of digging is environmentally harmless – there is less disturbance to the ground and no need for a water supply
  • it allows us to leave the site clean – no muddy slurry is created and we can re-use the soil excavated to back-fill the hole
  • we don’t much space – we can suck through small openings
  • it’s more time and cost effective than digging – we don’t need to deploy as much equipment or personnel
  • air excavation is safe and very fast on site
