Industrial cleaning jobs frequently require more power than the typical combination machine can provide. The Code Combo Vac from Westech Vac Systems is built for those challenges. Designed using customer input, the industrial-sized combo unit provides similar service to the company’s noncode industrial hydrovac line while maximizing weight and hauling capacity to make it road legal and within Department of Transportation regulations. The increased hauling capacity means increased revenue potential on each job.

The unit offers a powerful vacuum system, high-pressure water system and a steam reel for tough greases, sludge and oils. It is built to Transport Canada code TC 407 for hazardous material applications, meaning it also falls under U.S. DOT 407 requirements. The unit can also be built to noncode specifications for off-highway use.

The maximum payload capacity is made possible through an internal 3D modeling and weight distribution program that optimizes the design. According to Westech Vac Systems, the goal is to efficiently use as much axle capacity as possible while keeping the design safe and productive, resulting in more time on the job and fewer overweight penalties.

The Code Combo Vac unit includes a Kenworth T800 tridem chassis built to endure harsh applications, a Hibon 820 trilobe blower (28-inch maximum vacuum, 1,600 cfm free airflow), Cat Pumps 660 water pump (offering a maximum 10 gpm at 3,000 psi), 700,000 Btu diesel-fired water heater, electrically powered tank vibrator, steamer kit and glycol hose reel. Units are built to specifications and include options such as heated compartments, valves and waterlines to meet adverse climate conditions.

It is available in single-axle, tandem-axle and tridrive configurations tailored to the job requirements. Additional features include hydraulically raising to off-load, industrial-grade controls, rear door discharge and suction valves, an epoxy-coated water compartment, diesel blower flush system, body vibrator and cross-cabinet water compartment. Additional options include a 6-inch loading boom, a vacuum system to equip the unit with a support trailer, a steamer option with an increased capacity 980,000 Btu boiler, van-body water compartment, upgraded National Vacuum Equipment suction and discharge valves, and LINE-X exterior coatings to protect the unit from especially adverse environments. 780-955-3030;
