What is the right type of sewer system for your project? The geographic area of the project is the main determining factor. Vacuum systems are usually found in areas which have a high water table or have very difficult rock conditions. Pipework is laid relatively flat in the ground and the whole intention of this type of system is to ensure that construction remains as shallow as … Read More...
The Smart Green Future of Sewage Collection
Vacuum Sewerage Systems are a low cost, environmentally friendly solution for counties, communities and residential developers. Replacing or installing sewerage infrastructure in difficult and expensive areas (primarily coastal areas with a high-water table). Sewage flows from a group of houses via gravity to a collection point in the street. From there, the Flovac vacuum collection system takes over. Transporting all sewage quickly and efficiently to the treatment plant with no leaks.
Vacuum sewers can be installed quickly and with minimal excavation saving up to 30% on capital costs. By keeping stormwater and ground water out of the sewer system, operational costs and electricity use is significanly lower. A fully monitored system can also reduce operational time and risks.
Vacuum sewerage systems are widely accepted in over 40 countries. Weigh up what is important to you and it will become obvious why Flovac is receiving such wide acceptance.
Flovac is the largest designer, supplier and operator of vacuum sewer systems worldwide.
Comparing Sewerage Collection Systems
When looking at a comparison between vacuum sewerage systems, gravity sewers or low pressure grinder pump systems the focus is often capital costs and operational costs. Vacuum sewers can be up 40% cheaper than alternatives when used in the right project. How will you determine what is important for your next project. There may often be other considerations. Environmental Risks … Read More...
Monitoring your vacuum sewer
Flovac Wireless Monitoring Systems allow operators to pinpoint exactly what is going on in their vacuum sewerage network cutting down both time in the field and the risk of potential overflows. Many operators will tell you that it can take a very long time to find the source of a problem in a vacuum sewer system, but then take very little time to fix. The European standards for vacuum … Read More...
