Faster and Safer Excavations, by Badger Daylighting, a Feature of "Industry Today" on

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - Apr 18, 2011) - Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) will host special guest Badger Daylighting (Calgary, Alberta) as part of this week's "Industry Today" webcast. Badger Daylighting is North America's largest provider of non-destructive hydrovac excavating services.

Badger Daylighting's mobile hydrovac excavation systems offer many advantages to project constructors. The company's non-destructive hydrovac trucks use water and vacuum technology to quickly liquefy and extract soil from in and around buried pipes and cables, thereby exposing them to light, hence the term "daylighting." Daylighting is a safe, clean and precise way of excavating around buried utilities.

Badger's key technology is the Badger Hydrovac System, a hydro-vacuum excavation truck that is used primarily for digging safely in areas with buried pipes and cables. However, the advantages of Badger's service don't stop there: From digging through frozen ground in conditions down to minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit, to excavating at distances more than 400 feet away from the truck, the strength and versatility of Badger's hydrovac service gives options to project personnel faced with the challenge of completing work safely, on time and under budget.

Badger's most obvious advantage is safety, but equally as important is the increased productivity customers achieve when using Badger on their projects. Badger's Hydrovac System has been tested as being 10 times faster than hand excavation. Excavation projects that previously took days can often be completed in hours.

Badger's hydrovac service provides a superior solution for the daylighting or potholing of buried lines, pole and piling holes, slot trenching, debris removal and cleanups, maintenance and installation service pits, and many other applications.

Badger traditionally works for contractors, engineers and facility owners in the petroleum, petrochemical, pipeline, power, utility and transportation industries. Badger has more than 400 trucks supporting customers from over 80 field offices on a 24/7 basis.
