HYDRO-PNEUMATIC EXCAVATION

combining water & air

PKX’s XCaliber Hydro-Pneumatic Excavation combines high-pressure water excavation and compressed air excavation into a single mobile system. State-of-the-Art equipment and techniques that allow for precision excavation while ensuring minimal environmental impact. This means an eco-friendly footprint is left, with quick restoration of the surrounding area. Hydro-pneumatic excavation almost removes any possibility of underground utility damage, while also providing huge savings in investment costs. The dual components of hydro and pneumatic excavation allows Porta Kleen to quickly and thoroughly complete soil and debris removal, trenching, remote digging and potholing.
