Vacuum trailer new trailer type at Powder-Trans

At the beginning of 2024, Powder-Trans will be introducing a vacuum trailer, a brand new trailer that can withstand negative pressure thanks to its specially designed tank. In addition, material can be both sucked into and blown out of the tank.

Most of the bulk tanks on the market are emptied by blowing the material out of the vehicle under pressure, and loaded by filling the material into the tank. In addition, standard horizontal and tipping tanks can only withstand overpressure. With its new trailer, Powder-Trans expands the possibilities. If necessary, it is now possible to suck material into the tank and move it to a silo, for example, where it is to be blown in, which is quite unusual. It has turned out that there is a need for these services, which Powder-Trans can now offer from the beginning of next year.

In addition to meeting the needs of some customers, the new trailer is also an example of Powder-Trans’ commitment to environmental friendliness in its operations. The new trailer responds to an increasing need for recycling and an interest in minimising waste of materials. Compared to standard vacuum trucks that empty sludge, for example, the Powder-Trans trailer is an alternative that can be completely cleaned between transports and therefore works for most materials, from sand and lime to plastic products. This makes the vehicle unique.

The new vacuum trailer is custom-built by German manufacturer Feldbinder. Thanks to reinforcements, it is able to withstand negative pressure, while the rest of the functions rely on specialised technology and equipment. The vehicle has a variety of filters, a special compressor and other equipment for both blowing and sucking.

Optimised compartmentalised vehicle also new in the fleet

Since the beginning of 2023, Powder-Trans has also expanded its fleet of compartmentalised bulk vehicles. The new vehicle enables both more flexible and environmentally friendly transports.

With the new vehicle combination, Powder-Trans can offer also smaller loads and volumes more flexibly than before. With multiple compartments in both the trailer and the truck, Powder-Trans can load and deliver multiple small shipments at once, or transport multiple small shipments to and from different customers along one route, saving time and resources.

For customers, these vehicles are also very flexible when loads may involve small quantities of different materials or different qualities of the same material that need to be separated. The loads can go to or from the same customer or to and from several different ones, but all with the same vehicle. The combination is equipped with weighing systems and a remote control system for loading and unloading.

Powder-Trans already has several compartmentalised vehicles in Sweden, but the new combination has more compartments and a comprehensive weighing system. The new vehicle, which will also operate in Sweden, both increases capacity and broadens services.
