Vacuum trucks are a type of tank truck that boast heavy duty vacuum pumps. This allows you to load all kinds of substances, including liquids, solids or sludge,through the vacuum pump’s suction lines. Most vacuum pumps use rotary vane vacuum pumps. Here at Amthor International, we provide our clients with a variety of vacuum trucks in the Matador line.
Our Vacuum Tank Trucks
Our vacuum trucks are part of the Matador line. We have stationary vacuum tank trucks, dumping vacuum tank trucks and full opening rear door vacuum tank trucks that you can choose from. Additionally, we have both code and non-code vacuum trucks that you can use. The following are the main differences between the two:
• Code vacuum trucks – A code vacuum truck is built according to the regulations of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and is meant to be used on hazardous materials. For example, many businesses use code vacuum trucks to clean up various oils and chemicals that are deemed hazardous by the Environmental Protection Agency.
• Non-code vacuum trucks – Non-code vacuum trucks are used for any materials that are safe. They cannot be used for materials that are hazardous.
Our Vacuum Tank Truck Features
Our trucks are fitted with all kinds of innovative features. For example, one of our latest innovations is the CLAW. The CLAW is a series of hydraulic arms that are used to open and close the rear door, thereby eliminating the need to use wing nuts along the sides and top of the truck. This creates a much tighter – and therefore more convenient and safer – seal.
Our Vacuum Tank Truck Options
If you need a turnkey unit, we always have vacuum tank trucks that are ready for sale. However, we can also customize a premier vacuum tank truck according to your unique specifications. We have a wide selection of custom materials and options to help build the tanker that you need.
At Amthor International, we pride ourselves on being able to handle any needs you have when it comes to our vacuum tank trucks, all while still being able to provide every one of our customers with the personalized customer service that you might expect from a smaller family owned and operated business.
