Connector cover keeps debris out of couplings

Problem: Hydroexcavation operators constantly struggle with quick connect couplings on the end of lances. The couplings become inoperable when mud, dirt and spoils that may contain wet sand, clays, gravel and other debris become lodged in the joint. Advanced Plumbing & Mechanical in Monmouth, Illinois, constantly struggles with debris in the couplings.

Solution: Vactor offered a connector cover called The Shield. This device is retrofittable to all Vactor products in the field, as well as competitor products. 

Result: Advanced Plumbing & Mechanical experienced The Shield firsthand. “For such a simple concept, The Shield has eliminated all of our previous struggles,” says Zach Johnson, the company’s owner. “After several days of work, the quick connect couplings are left clean and fully functional.” 815-672-3171;
