The PACS vacuum trailer system is ideal for picking up viscous oil and dense solids on land or from water surfaces. It is also very effective for beach cleaning operations that require long suction hoses and large solids handling abilities. The system includes a heavy-duty suction wand, 1,000 gallon / 3.7 cu m tank and a selection of suction hoses. Hydraulics may be used to operate a variety of auxiliary equipment such as skimmers, pumps and pressure washers – see models and figurations below.
A PACS skid mounted unit is available for use with existing vehicles or barges.

Options and Accessories
Vacuum Pumps (blowers) and Engine Combinations: We offer a wide range of vacuum pumps (blowers) combined with different engines (diesel or gasoline).
High Pressure Water Pump: This feature can be added to most PACS units. The high pressure cold water pump is driven hydraulically from the integral power unit. Water is supplied from a saddle tank mounted on top of the debris tank.
Dry Particulate Filter: Washable polyester filter media rated at 98% efficiency on 10 microns. Molded urethane end caps. Carbon steel core with two support straps. Epoxy coated aluminum back-up wire.
Transfer Pumps:PACS units fitted with auxiliary hydraulic circuits are capable of running a transfer pump. E150 centrifugal pump requires as a minimum, the 25 hp / 18 kW engine. The ES400 helical screw pump requires the 48 hp / 36 kW diesel. These pumps can be used as submersibles for direct pumping.
Oil Skimmers: PACS units fitted with auxiliary hydraulic circuits are capable of running an Elastec drum skimmer such as the TDS118 or TDS136. Skimmed oil is sucked into the debris tank. Alternatively, we can supply a simple floating suction head (ShovelHead skimmer) or SeaSkaterNP suction skimmer.
Rear Door: The PACS unit can be configured with a 36 inch, or fully opening rear door.
