Vacuum recovery system for oils and other liquids


The RO-VAC MK III is a successor to the popular RO-VAC MK II. Building on the huge success of the previous model, the new MK III uses a larger and more powerful drive in the form of a twin cylinder 15kW Hatz diesel engine. A 50% increase on the old model. In addition the vacuum pump is now driven by hydraulics rather than a belt drive giving the operator even more operational control. It is an especially effective tool for beach cleaning and pipeline spill operations and used in a variety of modes according to the spill situation.
The RO-VAC MK III’s power plant comes in a robust galvanized steel frame with engine vibration mountings. It includes the large diameter wheels and large footprint tyres suitable for both road and off road towing.

The unit also incorporates a high-pressure jet washer with hand lance. The washer is also hydraulic drive via a PVG control valve. The hand lance is trigger activated and a chemical dosing ejector nozzle with pick-up tube allows for chemical dosing.
