The new ATE Tri-Axle Vacuum Tanker range have been ingeniously designed with the end user in mind, focusing on efficiency, useability and longevity. As per ATE’s bespoke approach, all aspects are customisable according to client’s complex requirements.

Built to general purpose, EPA and DG dress, the vacuum system can be driven by either a stand-alone auxiliary diesel engine, where power output and operating revs are matched to required vacuum performance, or power generated via PTO from the prime mover. We offer a range of high vacuum, liquid ring pumps or blowers across a range of CFM air movement.

Aluminium, 350 Grade, AS Pressure Plate and 304/316 stainless steel are all available for vessel construction (application dependant). If a single tri axle isn’t big enough, we also offer these vacuum tankers in 25m B-Double combinations, which can be fitted with a super heavy-duty full-length chassis (available for Tipper and none-Tipper) or a heavy-duty running gear (none-Tipper). 5 stage tipping and full opening rear doors available across the range.

From an environmental point of view, we consider the tankers holistically. We source as much local content as possible, to support the local community and have the smallest possible carbon footprint. We then engineer each design to maximise performance and longevity without adding unnecessary weight, this reduces the amount of fuel required to pull our tankers. Our production processes utilise state of the art software to maximise weld torch efficiency, which in turn reduces electricity consumption. When we hydrostatically test our vessels, the water is filtered and recycled, so we don’t waste a critical natural resource.

The vessels themselves have integrated wear plates at known vacuum tanker wear locations; these plates are replaceable and greatly extend the life of the asset. This thinking has been applied to our internal surge baffles, which have been designed to be none structural and easy to replace in service. Regardless of application, our tankers use the dangerous goods design code. This means that the integrity of the tank minimises spills to ground, which benefits the environment.
