HYDRO-EXCAVATION

Unlike traditional mechanical excavation processes, hydro-excavation minimizes damage or disruption to critical underground utilities by using pressurized water, combined with high-power vacuuming. This method of excavation can significantly reduce the risk of destroying site infrastructure.

Using safe hydro-excavation technology, PKX can complete a typical excavation project in a fraction of the time it takes to use conventional digging methods.

  • Most powerful water pressure and suction in the industry to easily excavate frozen ground
  • Non-destructive soil and debris removal, trenching, remote digging and potholing reaches locations traditional excavation cannot
  • Rear-mounted boom offers impressive range of motion and pivot
  • Tilt-ejection unloading provides fast and thorough removal of debris
  • Surrounding area and soil remain undamaged, increasing efficiency and decreasing downtime
  • Remote-controlled vacuuming and water system allow for one-person operation
  • Integrated fall-protection harness decreases safety-related incidents

XCALIBER HYDRO-PNEUMATIC EXCAVATION

XCaliber Hydro-Pneumatic Excavation combines both high-pressure water and compressed air excavation methods into one mobile system.

Having both hydro- and pneumatic- excavation capabilities allows PKX to quickly complete soil and debris removal, trenching, remote digging and potholing.

  • Integrated air compressor saves resources by eliminating extraneous workforce and pull-behind compressors
  • Our onboard air compressor produces pressure levels of 170 psi compared with 140 psi available with traditional pull-behind compressors, resulting in higher production
  • Independent PTOs for air and water
  • Air knife cuts through soils without waste, enabling material to be dumped on-site
  • 750,000 BTU burners to easily excavate frozen ground
  • Non-destructive soil and debris removal, trenching, remote digging and potholing reaches locations where traditional excavation may not be possible
  • Push-plate ejection unloading provides fast and thorough removal of debris during air excavation, eliminating safety concerns

We use multiple types of spray nozzles to control water flow and break up debris. This service is perfect for clearing newly built sewer systems or cleaning built-up debris from municipal sewer pipe.

  • 8-inch vacuum system with a heavy-duty, channel-reinforced elbow for maximum durability.
  • 270-degree manual rotation facilitates manhole entry and reduces traffic flow interruption
  • Front-mounted digital display operation screen with diagnostic capabilities
  • Reel capacity of 1,000 feet of 1-inch hose or 600 feet of 1 1/4-inch hose
  • 4-inch crossover enables operators to replenish 1,500-gallon water supply in 10 minutes or less
  • Tilt-ejection unloading provides fast and thorough removal of debris
  • Remote-controlled vacuuming and water system allow for safer operation
