Single-engine Camels increase fuel efficiency

Problem

The dual-engine combination sewer cleaners that Tampa-based VacVision Environmental used to service the Florida Department of Transportation were no longer reliable. "We spent hundreds of thousands of dollars each year for repairs," says managing partner Wes Kingery. "Because the machines used proprietary parts, we also faced extensive delays when trying to complete them." Besides repair costs, fuel prices and lost revenue from almost daily breakdowns were cutting into the company's profit margin.

Solution

VacVision replaced the old machines with single-engine Camel sewer cleaners from Super Products. The design reduces noise levels and maintenance.

Result

VacVision reduced fuel costs by more than a third. "The Camels are enhancing our reputation because customers know we will clean their sewers efficiently and promptly," says Kingery. 800/837-9711; www.superproductsllc.com.
