The Sludge Vacuum is ideal for car wash pits, tanks ediment, swimming pools, waste water slurries, grease traps and sludge ponds.
APPLICATIONS ARE ONLY LIMITED TO THE IMAGINATION.
Install the Sludge Vacuum on a standard pressurewasher wand. Lower the Sludge Vacuum into a bucket of sand and water – now you will understand what to expect on your first job with the Sludge Vacuum.
In a matter of seconds a conventional pressure washer wand can be converted into a powerful trash pump. The Sludge Vacuum is a “jet pump” that embodies a high pressure jet and Venturi/diffuser to lift and discharge the sludge through light weight 1 1½” hose. An optional jet is located in a downward position to dislodge sludge that is compacted and difficult to break-up. If the optional jet is not required for breaking up sediment, a plug is generally installed in the threaded jet outlet.
The Sludge Vacuum discharge capability is 10-12 times the output of the pressure washer. Example: 2.5 GPM – 3000 PSI pressure washer suction will be approximately 30 GPM. The higher the pressure washer volume, the higher the volume discharge ratio the Sludge Vacuum will pump. The higher the pressure, the greater the vertical lift. The lift capability is 35’ or more. The Sludge Vacuum will pump several 100 feet horizontally.
