U.S. Submergent Technologies recently completed a job for the City of Sanford in Florida. The job, which was executed by the 1249 Combination3® truck, involved drain-downs of two separate tanks.

We can do the job more surgically.” Jerry also noted that the design and function of the Combination3® trucks are what sets USST apart from its competitors. “It’s easier to back up with our equipment – it’s a more compact, consolidated operation,” he said. “We don’t have nearly the amount of equipment that others do and can pack up a lot more quickly. It’s convenient for the customer as well.” A competitor in close proximity to Sanford had … Read More

U.S. Submergent Technologies, developer of the innovative and powerful Combination³® technology, introduces the model 1249, a medium-size model in its line of combination trucks. Designed to clean wastewater treatment plants and large diameter pipes, the 1249 will begin service in Florida this month. USST’s Combination³® technology earns its distinction by featuring three components: vacuum, jetter, and a downhole system. The downhole system allows equipment to clean in deep or submerged environments and remove high viscosity material. The entire service can be performed while the plant remains in full operation – a capability that was previously missing in the vacuum truck marketplace. Technical features of the model 1249 include: · 49-foot knuckle boom crane with telescoping tubes for hard-to-reach places · 400-horsepower engine that fully powers the Combination³® components · Fully automated, multi-directional reel capable of holding up to 1,000 feet of jetter hose · Downhole system that enables the removal of debris from deep or submerged conditions, or the removal of high viscosity fluids · Includes mounted vacuum system for use as required · Jetter nozzle produces 180 gallons per minute at 2,000 psi · 12-yard debris tank, highly pressurized for debris and water separation U.S. Submergent Technologies Combination³® equipment is operated remotely, saving time … Read More
U.S. Submergent Technologies is finishing its largest project to date: the removal of accumulated debris in a South Tampa wastewater treatment facility. The facility is undergoing a major expansion and is currently under construction. Debris needs to be removed prior to demolition of the current structures. The 949 Combination³® truck was able to successfully remove sand and grit from an aeration basin while it remained in operation. Here is the result of what was pulled out of the tank: Sand and grit removed from aeration basin. We were able to remove the material faster, safer, and more efficiently than any other equipment currently on the market.
