HydraMaster’s New Tank Technology
“Not just another vacuum tank”, says HydraMaster of their new MaxAir Recovery & Separation system, now in early production. The MaxAir system will be used with the company’s CDS, Maxx and Boxxer truckmount models and includes at least eight improvements and innovations that have been engineered to benefit air performance, water separation, ease-of-cleaning and durability. The design of the MaxAir system involved computer models, engineering savvy and many hours of “air tunnel” model evaluation. The result is a uniquely efficient system for separating water and debris from a truckmount air stream while minimizing airflow losses.
