What is a Wet Vacuum? 

At QH-systems, we specialize in providing robust and efficient wet vacuums designed for a variety of industrial applications. Understanding the crucial role of maintaining a clean and safe working environment, our vacuums are engineered to offer superior performance and reliability. This article delves into the intricacies of wet vacuums, their applications, and the industries that benefit significantly from their utilization.  

What is a Wet Vacuum?   

Wet vacuums are specialized equipment used for the extraction and collection of water, oil and other liquid contaminants from various surfaces and environments. These devices are crafted to handle a range of viscosities and types of fluids, ensuring effective cleanup and maintenance.  

Our vacuums at QH-systems only need compressed air and are characterized by their robust construction, high suction capabilities, and adaptability to diverse industrial settings. 

How does a Wet Vacuum work?  

The mechanism of a vacuum involves a powerful venturi system which, in our case, uses compressed air to suck in oil or liquids through a hose or nozzle. The collected material is then stored in a steel drum or in a smaller container in the vacuum system. This process is facilitated by a combination of powerful vacuum, filtration system and durable components, all of which contribute to the efficient and safe removal and separation of liquid, oil spills and residues. 

Applications and Industrial Utilization: Wet vacuums are indispensable in numerous industries due to their versatility and efficiency. Some of the key applications include:  

  • Manufacturing and Engineering: In these sectors, wet vacuums are essential for maintaining machinery and shop floors, ensuring a clean and non-slippery environment.  
  • Automotive Industry: Used extensively for cleaning up spills and maintaining cleanliness in workshops and assembly lines.  
  • Maritime and Shipping: Employed in cleaning spills on decks and in engine rooms, thus preserving marine safety and environmental standards.  
  • Environmental Cleanup: Crucial in the remediation of spills in various environments, including water bodies and industrial sites, thereby aiding in environmental protection efforts.  
  • EX (ATEX) environments: Suitable for all the industries above. 


The use of wet vacuums in these industries not only contributes to operational efficiency but also plays a significant role in ensuring regulatory compliance and environmental stewardship.
