Alliance Pas-tex (APc), an Avangard-Innovative company, services polymer plants by providing logistical solutions to handle virgin resins and plant scrap. APc provides 24-hour service to accommodate their customers increased service demands. Some of the equipment APc owns to service these plants are the following:

Pneumatic trailers

APc has a fleet of pneumatic trailers ranging in product capacity from 18,000 to 45,000 pounds. All of the units are self loaders, providing the ability to operate the trucks at remote locations and outside railyards when the need arises. All of the units are steam cleaned after each product change, and kept in clean condition to prevent product contamination. there are also small "pup" vacuum trailers available that are useful when negotiating tight areas inside small railyards. these units are capable of transporting 18,000 lbs in each of the units and can be hauled in series as a double unit capable of transporting 36,000 lbs total material weight.

vacuum trucks

APc has a fleet of vacuum trucks designed specifically with plastic in mind. the "high dump" units make quick work of spill cleanups by utilizing the option of dumping the materials directly into open top roll-off boxes. this eliminates the time it takes to stage vacuum boxes, or drive to open top boxes that are located off the work site. the high-rail unit can clean up on-track spills without unnecessarily tying up other unrelated tracks in the process. this unit can drive on to the designated tracks while the others stay live, keeping your products moving. the vector unit is capable of transferring all types of dry materials and is designed to package the products in super saks, drums or gaylord boxes. the vector unit is powerful, boasting 3500 cfm of vacuum in a unit small enough to be pulled behind a 1-ton pickup truck.

van trailers

APc's van trailer fleet consists of all 48' length trailers. our specialty is running timely routes between local warehouse facilities and our customer sites. We have sleeper trucks and permits for hauling loads outside of our Houston based corporate headquarters.

Roll-off trucks

APc's roll-off fleet has tag axle units which are capable of transporting roll-off and vacuum boxes that are too heavy for the standard roll-off trucks to legally haul over the road. APc owns 20, 25, 30 and 40 cubic yard open top boxes, and also 25 cubic yard dewatering boxes. this allows a fast, 24/7, response to customers' needs.

Salamander transfer unit

the Salamander has a positive displacement vacuum pump that generates maximum levels of 3,658 cFM of airflow at 16" Hg (200" water), providing the power needed to complete the most difficult cleanup or recovery operations. Whether a job involves the removal of flowable bulk product or the recovery of environmentally sensitive materials, sludge's, slurries or liquids, APc offers a complete line of vacuum equipment and options to meet your specific clean-up needs.

Polymaster Direct Packaging unit

the Polymaster is the industry's leading on-the-run portable pneumatic conveying machine. this technology incorporates high speed bulk material conveying, without the risk of contamination. the Polymaster has the ability to transfer plastic pellets and resins at rates of up to 50,000 pounds per hour, and the capability to box 1,000 pounds of material per minute. Since the Polymaster is self-contained; polypropylene, polyethylene, Pvc and PEt are just a few of the types of products that can be conveyed. the Polymaster can also serve as a temporary backup system for shutdowns or system pluggage.


APc specializes in responding to commodities based train derailments. We provide 24 hour emergency service and have fully portable services to accommodate remote access needs. the first crew deployed will patch any leaks and attempt to reduce the loss of materials from any damaged railcars. We then utilize our equipment designed to vacuum the derailed materials and package them into various containers. Remediation crews will bring in heavy equipment to perform the final cleaning and restoration of the derailment site. All wastes from decontamination are handled in accordance with state and local laws and regulations.
