Optional Equipment

Chandler Manufacturing constructs each unit to our customers’ specifications. We do not build “cookie-cutter” equipment. Our sales and engineering staff can work with you do design a Vacuum Truck that meets your specific needs. Several popular options are listed below.
  • ASME Code Tank – Vacuum tank built to ASME Pressure Vessel Code. Allows for a higher pressure rating and is required for hauling anything in the tank in some locations.
  • Interior Tank Coating – Several tank coatings are available to extend the life of the tank. Coatings range from standard Coal Tar to specific chemical resistant coatings from Tnemec.
  • Acrylic Sight Glass – 2” acrylic sight glasses can be installed in either head of the tank. They allow you to monitor the level and quality of the fluid in the tank.
  • Alternate Control Locations – Control panel may be mounted outside of the truck cab, on the side of the unit, or at the rear bumper.
  • Catwalk – Full length catwalk on driver side of tank.
  • Oilbath Chainguard – completely enclosed chain drive with oilbath lubrication for the High Pressure Pump decreases wear and tear on chain and sprockets.
  • Plunger Lubricator – ratcheting lubricator automatically lubricates High Pressure Pump plungers when pump is in operation.
  • Auxiliary High Pressure Pump Lube System – electric pump to boost oil pressure in High Pressure Pump power end, recommended for low-speed pump operation.
  • High Pressure Pump Relief Valve – adjustable or shear-pin type relief valve relieves excess pressure back to the pump suction or service tank.
  • Flow Meter – electronic flow meter/totalizer piped into discharge line. Displays current flow rate and records total volume pumped.
  • Pipe Racks – Heavy Duty pipe racks with doors for Discharge Pipe Storage.
  • Aluminum Discharge Pipes – lighter and easier to handle than steel pipe.
  • Lift Axle – third axle can allow for additional weight without the need for a permit.
  • Hydraulics Package – hydraulically driven Feed and Load Pumps. Fewer driveline components to lubricate or adjust, allows for infinite pump speed adjustment.
