Hi Spec Engineering - Vacuum Tankers
Thoughtful design and superior build quality put the Hi Spec range of Vacuum Tankers in a class of their own. All our tankers from 750 gallons (3409 ltrs) to 3500 gallon (15,911 litres) use a unique low profile spreading system, this works by using a specially shaped deflection plate to create a fan of slurry less than a metre above the ground, yet it is capable of achieving a spreading pattern up to 12 metres wide. The downward directed plate not only increases controllability, but also decreases air pollution and unpleasant smells.
All tankers are manufactured using 6mm high quality British steel. Internal implosion rings are fitted to all tanks, which are then mounted on a strong chassis frame for maximum support. To ensure effective corrosion protection two coats of paint are applied to all tankers, an anti-corrosive primer and an enamel finish, thus giving a high quality long lasting finish. Alternatively Vacuum Tankers can be galvanised up to and including 3,500 gallons (15,911 ltrs) models.
The Hi Spec range of Vacuum Tankers come standard with hydraulic brakes, lights, 6' filler and discharge points, 3' (76mm) sight glasses, a blanked off side fill point, 15ft (4.57metres) of 6' suction hose and a 2½' (63mm) washdown adaptor. All tankers including and above 1,350 gallons (6138 ltrs) also have as standard a 6' quick attach suction hose fitting.
On all tankers from the 2,000 gallon (9,092 ltrs) models fitted with big wheels (23.1-26's / 28.1-26's) a sprung drawbar is fitted as standard. This is designed reduce wear to both the tanker and tractor, it does this by eliminating any shock loads being transferred from the tanker drawbar to the tractor pickup hitch.
