Suction Excavation Technology has been specifically designed for specialist construction activities in urban and suburban areas. It assures instant operability and fast excavation without the risk of affecting or damaging any unforeseen utilities. Use of excavation also reduces environmental impact by overcoming possible damage to tree roots, as the suction excavator clears past these without any damage.
Conroys Group was the very first to bring Suction Excavators into the UK in 2006. We have the largest independent fleet in the UK, backed up by a wealth of experience in the industry.

The suction excavator works in a similar way to a cyclonic cleaner, but with immense suction power. The high negative pressure air current removes all materials through a suction nozzle using a flexible arm attachment fixed to the back of the excavator vehicle.
The spoil collected is deposited in a self-contained unit mounted on the suction excavator vehicle. When the container becomes full, the lid is hydraulically opened and the entire chamber is mechanically tipped over and the contents discharged into a low level skip. The spoil is then removed from site and taken to either a landfill or ideally, a recycling facility.
Operating suction excavation capacities of around 45m³ per day are commonly achieved here in the UK (figure based on a 26 metric tonne unit with a 7m³ container). The suction excavator is ideally suited for use in uncovering defective underground pipes and cables, which are too dangerous to expose using standard open cut procedures. It has received recognition for brand value innovation from the likes of BP & Shell.
Suction Excavators features:
Faster and more efficient excavation compared to traditional open cut methods
Increased operational safety
Reduced excavation sizes and subsequent cost savings
No mains or cable shutoffs required whilst excavating
Approved for use on contaminated ground
Approved for use when laying pipes and cables through existing infrastructure
