Vac-Con Upgrade Kit Cuts Down Boom Maintenance
By Michael McClanahan / August 21, 2022

Moving debris from its source to the holding tank requires making a transition from vertical flow to horizontal. The elbow connecting the hose to the transfer pipe gets a lot of abuse as the material changes direction making it vulnerable to heavy wear.

To extend the life of your truck’s boom in heavy use, Vac-Con® has introduced a rugged new elbow kit that stands up to the toughest jobs. Its patent-pending design incorporates a ¼-inch wall infused with a tungsten-infused carbide coating on all parts. This innovative design has been field tested in heavy use and shows virtually no wear after 1,800 hours of service. The kit comes with both a boom and backend reducer and is available through O.J. Watson Equipment as a retrofit for existing trucks or an upgrade to new orders.

Vac-Con Trucks Make Debris Removal a Breeze
Whether on job sites or city streets, Vac-Con industrial vacuum trucks are found wherever fast, efficient debris removal is called for. Their world-class industrial vacuum and hydro-jet trucks are guaranteed to save time, money, and effort performing tasks ranging from exposing in-ground utilities to soil trenching, sewer jetting, and debris removal, including safer, more environmentally friendly techniques like hydro-excavating and daylighting.
