AllSmartFlow Intelligent Controls Standard on Vacall Jetting Machines

New Philadelphia, OH — The innovative Vacall AllSmartFlow™ control system brings added "Green That Works" advantages to Vacall machines, optimizing operating efficiency while saving on energy consumption and costs for greater overall sustainability benefits.

Standard on Vacall models, the AllSmartFlow CAN bus control system has a computerized feature that maintains constant water pressure, delivering precise water flow and jetting action. Operators can closely monitor vacuum and water usage, avoiding waste and eliminating unnecessary trips for water refills.

The AllSmartFlow system improves the operating efficiency of AllJetVac models, designed to open and maintain sewer lines; AllExcavate models, designed to perform highly productive hydro excavation and other functions like frac tank cleanout; AllSweep sweeping models; and AllCatch machines designed for catch basin cleanout.

In addition, the AllSmartFlow control system also allows the operator to manage precise boom and reel positions. Controls are managed using a color LCD screen, or with a wired or wireless programmable pendant that allows the operator a better view of the Vacall machine's functions.

Another benefit of the "Green That Works" philosophy is the single-engine design of Vacall machines. While other machines require two engines – one to power the chassis and another to create vacuum and jetting forces, Vacall models use just one engine for all functions. As a result, Vacall machines use less gas, emit a lower level of harmful emissions and require less routine engine maintenance and parts.

Another "green" advantage is that Vacall leads the industry with designed-in sustainability, designing and building features with superior materials that will last for years and years. This includes standard and optional debris and water tanks that carry lifetime warranties.

In addition to sewer maintenance, hydro excavation, sweeper and catch basin cleanout models, Vacall brands include AllVac machines designed to remove solid and liquid industrial waste.
