This article presents information regarding a small portable vacuum system, which is designed for potholing, soil excavation and other wet or dry vacuum applications. The VSK100G/D, a 100-gallon unit, will fit in any half-ton pickup truck and is easily transportable to and from the jobsite. The system is available with a 30-hp liquid cooled diesel option and uses a 575-cfm blower to generate air velocities of 120 mph. A 2.6-gpm water pump is used for digging with either the water lance or reduction tool. This product is introduced by McLaughlin Boring Systems.

    In the absence of gravity drainage, froth wicking draws excess fluid onto a bubble lattice. Capillary forces only cause fluid transport; a moving front moves stably and without fluid fingering along a constant velocity bubble-fluid contact line. This percolation of fluid crawling up the lattice...
