Our background and history at Conroy Group

Suction Excavation Technology has been specifically designed for specialist construction activities in urban and suburban areas. It assures instant operability and fast excavation without the risk of affecting or damaging any unforeseen utilities. Use of excavation also reduces environmental impact by overcoming possible damage to tree roots, as the suction excavator clears past these without any damage.

Conroy Group took delivery of the first Suction Excavator in the UK back in 2006 and has steadily increased its fleet whilst remaining at the forefront of technology.

The suction excavator works in a similar way to a cyclonic cleaner, but with immense suction power. The high negative pressure air current removes all materials through a suction nozzle using a flexible arm attachment fixed to the back of the excavator vehicle.

The spoil collected is deposited in a self-contained unit mounted on the suction excavator vehicle. When the container becomes full, the lid is hydraulically opened and the entire chamber is mechanically tipped over and the contents discharged into a low level skip. The spoil is then removed from site and taken to either a landfill or ideally, a recycling facility.

Operating suction excavation capacities of around 45m³ per day are commonly achieved here in the UK (figure based on a 26 metric tonne unit with a 7m³ container). The suction excavator is ideally suited for use in uncovering defective underground pipes and cables, which are too dangerous to expose using standard open cut procedures. It has received recognition for brand value innovation from the likes of BP & Shell.

Investing now to plan for the future
  • Excavations size is greatly reduced, leading to lesser environmental impact and a reduction in excavated material.  This additionally means less material for landfill.
  • Waste can be managed through operation of suction excavator allowing separation of hazardous and non-hazardous waste.
  • Liquid Waste can be easily removed through excavator operation, allowing suitable prevention of any pollution to land / watercourses.
  • Due to sealed suction system all dust is captured at source and transferred to excavator reducing the risk of nuisance to the public and others.
