Breaking through to new innovation

At ATE, we’ve continued to strengthen our capability and processes, which has enabled us to grow and diversify our product range.

Our heavy duty vacuum tankers are built to the highest Australian standards – we’ve been accredited with the Australian Made certification and designed a product that solves the challenges our clients face.  We offer the following:

  • Choice of PTO or auxiliary engine derived power;
  • Liquid ring or positive displacement vacuum pump with between 1000cfm and 2400cfm and high vacuum;
  • Options to include tipping barrel, opening rear door, lift axles, steer axles, integrated and interlocked mass cut-off, Dangerous Goods (DG) specification;
  • Standard build utilising 304 stainless steel, with 316 stainless steel / mild steel pressure plate or aluminium as an option.

We aim for nothing less than continuing to improve the way we do business and expand our product offerings - and our clients are always at the forefront of our thinking.

Good things do come in small packages

The all new ATE "BabyVac" is a result of innovative thinking and good engineering practice. With height, length and mass constraints, ATE designed and engineered EPA compliant vehicles that can fit into low access height car parks. The GVM of the Isuzu platform has been maximised, with well balanced weight distribution across the axles. The range is offered in Liquid Ring and Rotary Vane vacuum pumps utilising PTO drive.

Aluminium water tanks have been integrated into the main barrel to give, what we feel, is a sleek and modern design that backs up its looks with performance. Total fill time from empty to 3000L in as low as 9 minutes, also makes this a high productivity machine.

New factory announcement

Every solution is different. Nothing is the same. At ATE, we’ve learnt to move and bend with the brief (and the people). 
We offer our clients the option to “have it your way”- we can adjust production lines in response to design changes and even speed time to market by generating prototypes quickly.

This bespoke unit was customised to suit our clients specific end-user operations and optimised for a lower centre of gravity.

Not everything can be solved with the same approach.

Old horse, new tricks

ATE not only design and construct new build road tankers, our engineers and tradesmen can also assist in bringing your old workhorses new life. Such as two recently completed 4,300 litre Re-Horses which have been refitted with a new truck, equipment and repainted. Both now have a new lease on life and will be on the roads and in operation for many more years to come.
