PACS 2000 Municipal Vacuum Trailer

Oil spill absorbent boom

The ELASTEC PACS 2000 is an extremely durable, easy to use vacuum trailer system designed for municipal use. The center-mounted controls enable operation from both sides of the unit to keep workers away from traffic. The optional boom arm and water jetter allow for potholing and hydro-excavation jobs. Considerable time can be saved by using hydro-excavation while inspecting lines with minimal ground disturbance. Easy to tow and maneuver in congested work spaces, these rugged vacuum systems are purpose-built to clean up oil, liquids, solids, and sludge. Our trailer mounted vacuum systems are designed to go where large vacuum trucks can’t, and for jobs where vac trucks are not cost effective.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which type of vacuum pump do I need, Positive Displacement or Rotary Vane?
Our positive displacement vacuum pump is good for moving solids. These pumps typically run 14 to 16 Hg and move more air than the Rotary Vane. The air carries the solids to the tank. The Rotary Vane vacuum pump is good for moving liquids. They typically move less air but have a higher vacuum up to 27 Hg.

Do you have a unit that is good for hydro excavation?
Yes, the PACS 2000 and the PACS 920 have a optional 5 GPM 3000 PSI power washer that works well with the vacuum system for hydro excavation.

Do you have a vacuum unit that is good for moving liquids?
Yes, the PACS 424 has a vane pump and is good to 27 Hg and can pressure unload up to 15 PSI.
