What is Vacu-Boom™?
An innovative and practical waste water capture system to prevent run-off from washing operations indoors and outdoors. A highly effective spill containment system for waste water containing hazardous chemicals.
The Vacu-Boom™ system is engineered to be used in a wide variety of industrial and commercial applications where chemicals and fluid waste must be contained and/or captured and removed from the site.
The Vacu-Boom™ is a hollow flexible tube five inches in diameter that is placed directly on a hard surface to form a downside slope dam or to completely encircle the wash or containment area. The boom has a C shaped cross section with the open side down. There are small liquid inlet openings on the water side of the bottom edge. During use, the boom is connected by a 25 foot vacuum hose to the portable wet vacuum recovery unit.
How does Vacu-Boom™ work?
When the wet vac system is turned on, the Vacu-Boom™ tightly seals itself to the surface like a giant suction cup, to form an impervious liquid barrier. Simultaneously, waste water or other liquid is extracted into the boom and travels with the airflow through the boom and vacuum hose into the sump of the vacuum unit. The vacuum unit is equipped with an automatic pump out system, which discharges water through a discharge hose into a holding tank, filter unit or sanitary sewer.
Vacu-Boom™ systems are available in virtually any length or shape using standard components. Examples are straight lines, arcs, semi-circles, ellipses, squares and rectangles. For application recommendations and pricing Contact Us.
