More New Equipment to Benefit You!

Vacuum excavation added to our wide range of cathodic protection construction services.

MATCOR continues to invest in new equipment to allow us to perform your projects in an efficient and safe manner with minimal downtime. MATCOR has seen an unprecedented investment in new equipment, having added multiple new drilling rigs to our fleet while rotating out our older models, purchased new water trucks, added MudPuppy mud cleaners and recyclers, and commissioned two new HDD rigs in the past three years.

But that is not all, MATCOR is very excited to roll out a new capability to our service line. We have purchased two state of the art Vacuum Excavators.

Vacuum excavation services now available.

These two new vacuum excavators are dual air and water units allowing MATCOR’s crew to operate efficiently in a wide range of environments. “Big Air” compressor capability provides 300 lbs. of cutting capability, enabling us to excavate in many areas without the need for water.

The excavated material is vacuumed up in a dry form with significantly less mess and environmental impact. This allows for the expeditious backfilling of the excavation with the same material that had been removed. It also eliminates the need to haul off any spoils or haul in fresh fill materials.

Our new excavators are dual capable units that also incorporate a hydro excavation capability. High pressure water is more aggressive and can cut through virtually any soil type including more compact, rocky and dense soil that may preclude the use of air. The hydro capability is also great for cleaning the pipeline once excavated to enable physical inspections and making test station or negative connections.

MATCOR is excited to be adding vacuum excavation to our in-house construction capabilities allowing us to provide a wide range of additional services to our customers.

More than just a new truck smell!

As we roll out our new fleet of construction equipment across our operating regions, that grin on our crew members’ faces is not from the new car smell in their truck – it’s that feeling of rolling up to the job site with state-of-the-art new construction equipment that looks great and performs even better. We’ve invested heavily in improving our construction fleet and listening to our crews and our customers.

New Drilling Rigs

Our new drilling rigs are bigger and faster and incorporate the latest technologies to assure that we have the right equipment for the job. Outfitted for both air and rotary mud drilling operations, these rigs are ready to rumble. The impact for our crews and customers includes:

  • A safer work environment
  • Reduced installation time
  • Eliminating unnecessary downtime

With our new rigs on the job, our customers won’t have to sit around and wait as an idle rig is being repaired or waiting on parts to proceed with the installation.

New Water Trucks

Our new fleet of water trucks were specifically designed by MATCOR for deep anode installation projects. These new trucks enable us to reduce our crew footprint and consolidate our vehicle count by combining our water truck, coke pump and material truck into a single multi-purpose vehicle. Reduced vehicle traffic greatly lowers impact on the customer site and access roads. It also reduces our environmental emissions impact while eliminating one additional driver/crew member. Innovative equipment design makes us safer and more competitive.

Mud Cleaning and Handling System

Portable pits are the pits – MATCOR is moving towards a new state of the art mud cleaning and handling system that eliminates the need for earthen pit or portable pits. Our new MudPuppy® solids control system efficiently removes drilling cuttings while conditioning and cleaning our circulating mud to improve drilling effectiveness. It also provides the added benefit of reducing wear and tear on the drill pump and drilling equipment. For our customers, this means a much cleaner, fully-contained drill site with significantly reduced solids disposal requirements. MATCOR is an early adopter of this technology in the cathodic protection industry.

We are investing heavily in the best equipment because we understand that a well equipped crew is the first step in a well-executed, safer and cost-effective installation.
