Our industrial tools and equipment maximize the efficiency of commercial water extraction. Matching the equipment and tools to the job is part of the process. It’s all about completing the extraction as fast as possible to get you back in business faster.
Commercial water pumps are excellent to extract standing water. These pumps work best in areas that tend to hold water after a loss. Engineering sub-basements and elevator shafts present ideal situations for these tools. Submersible pumps use a discharge hose to remove water from a submerged position. A surface pump extracts water with an engine or motor located outside the flooded area. Either electric motors or internal combustion engines with an intake and discharge hose. They are available in various sizes for different commercial water extraction applications
Units with enough vacuum capability can extract water from structures, systems, and contents. When pumps are not available these units can remove standing water but are not as efficient. The extracted water is either pumped into a sanitary sewer system or captured in a holding tank. Water extraction units include both portable and truck-mounted units.
Powerful truck-mounted units in vans and trucks provide quick commercial extraction. Hoses of up to 500 yards allow for a wide range of use. Inside the vehicle, a wastewater tank captures the water removed from the facility. That water is then disposed of according to the local regulations. Truck-mounted units use combustion engines or are PTO driven. We have truck mounted extractors of all sizes and are a fast choice for extraction.
Buildings with limited access may need portable extractors. Our portable extractor of choice is the Phoenix Hydro-X Xtreme Xtractor. It is the most effective and efficient portable extraction tool on the market. The Hydro-X Xtreme Xtractor’s patented Suction Roller provides both suction and compression. This forces water to the surface then pulls the water away, not allowing it to reabsorb. No other portable extractor today can match it in commercial water removal.
Different commercial water extraction tools remove water from specific surfaces. There are a variety of tools that perform water removal using a vacuum hose to an extraction unit. These include light wands, weighted drag tools, stationary tools, and self-propelled units. The different tools are appropriate for commercial water extraction from specific surfaces.
Light Wand: A light wand attached to a water extraction unit is a very effective non-weighted tool. Used for initial water removal, extracting water from glue-down, and padded carpet. It removes residual water on the surface of the carpet after the use of stationary tools.
Hard Surface Wand: Designed for standing water on hard surfaces. Important for commercial water extraction it incorporates a non-abrasive head. This minimizes the risk of causing damage to flooring surfaces.
Weighted Drag Tool: Generally used by commercial water extraction teams on carpeted surfaces. It is a vacuum head compressed into the carpet by weight and a roller. Drug across the surface of the carpet it extracts water from the carpet and pad below.
Stationary Tool: Rectangular panels with many holes or slots in the base. Used for removing water from carpet and pad during commercial water extraction. The unit is stood on which creates a vacuum seal by compressing the carpet and pad. As the water extraction is complete the unit moves across the floor in a systematic pattern.
Self-Propelled Unit: Self Propelled units incorporate a motor and speed control mechanism. During commercial water extraction, the operator rides it providing the weight for compression. These units provide a consistent rate of water extraction over large areas.
