Air Excavation

There are multiple benefits with Air Excavation

The benefits

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

  • the use of suction instead of digging is environmentally harmless – it is less intrusive with minimal 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 can trench with less risk of collapse, having the ability to excavate much narrower trenches that will remain stable
  • 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
