Features of rig vacs
The rig vacs have high quality metal frames, and the actual vacuum is built onto that frame. They will have pumps, exhaust, hoses, and attachments. The basic design of the vacuums is similar from one manufacturer to another. However, some of them may have different features and design styles. The units are actually very easy to operate once you have them in place. They do work similarly to a traditional vacuum.
How rig vacs work
Essentially, the device is going to work very similarly to a regular vacuum, even though the design and the setup are quite a bit different and it is far larger. These vacuums are not portable, for example. They have hoses that can attach to the vacuums, which then use high power pumps to suck up the grit, grime, and debris into a tank. The hoses that attach to the units are generally quite long. They are a very specialized device, and you are typically only going to see these in use in the oil industry. They typically run off of a generator powered by gas or diesel.
