- These vehicles are central to QES core business, and the fleet is maintained to a high standard in order to provide a reliable service for waste transport.
- The barrels are built from stainless steel and are coated in a range of materials: glass, hyperlon rubber for transporting acids and other highly corrosive substances. Our stainless steel barrels are for less corrosive liquids; and mild steel and aluminium for non-hazardous liquids and solvents.
- For liquid waste QES have a fleet in excess of 20 tankers of 30,000 litre capacity.
- 30,000 litre Stainless steel ADR classes 3,6,9, petroleum regulated vacuum tankers.
- 30,000 litre rubber lined acid vacuum tankers
- 30,000 litre glass lined vacuum tankers for corrosive materials
- 30,000 litre aluminium high payload tanks
- 23,000 litre rubber lined product tanks
- 15,000 litre rigid tankers for restricted access sites, complete with onboard jetters.
- For dry waste, or heavy sludge and solids, we have DISAB units in the fleet, able to take on loads at 8500cfm. These specialist artic units can carry 12 tonne payloads and can safely load heavy solids to fine powders with all dust being collected in cyclone dust traps. With suction capacity pulling 8500cfm and loading through 6-12 inch hoses these bespoke built tipping units are unique in terms of suction ability.
- These units can be utilised to suck sludge and soil that would normally be considered for removal by an excavator. However, with the suction system it is possible to convey solids / sludge's from the most inaccessible locations such as tanks, interceptors or coal shafts.
High Tip DISAB
Our newest DISAB has a high tip barrel which enables the tank to tip into containers and decant the material in the barrel.
Like the hopper unit the barrel has a vibrating discharge and aeration system.
Vacuum Hopper Units
New liquid ring tipping tanker with on board jetter has a 21t capacity for heavy sludges. The liquid ring pump is extremely powerful and bridges the gap between a conventional vacuum tanker and DISAB unit.
