VACUUM SYSTEM DESIGNERS
Experienced Designers of Vacuum Sewer Systems for both Vacuum Reticulation networks and Vacuum Pump Stations.
Our engineering services include design for septic tank replacement programs, new residential developments, system upgrades, marina’s and specialist concepts.
Flovac’s engineers work hand in hand with our clients to ensure that the best solution is achieved for the specific site
Our global engineering team understands the importance of local and project specific issues, whether it’s droughts or floods, deserts, hurricanes or earthquakes, remoteness, operational issues or environmental issues. Flovac engineers helped develop standards in a number of regions including Australia, Asia, the Middle East and Europe.
Flovac’s engineers will always look for the best solution for the project. As per their charter, they are not tasked with selling vacuum systems, they need to ensure that whatever technology is used is the most appropriate for the client and local conditions. In many cases this has resulted in hybrid systems using a variety of technologies including gravity and low pressure grinder pumps.
As the Engineering Group is involved in a number of projects around the world at any one time they are kept up to date with product changes and enhancements which might affect the design. The same is true to changes in country or state standards that may also impact on the design.
The product questions that have come up regularly include:-
- What type of vacuum pump to use? R5 or Mink or liquid ring. What impact with that have on noise/odor/ventilation/controls?
- Type of Collection Tank? Mild Steel/Stainless/Fiberglass? What depth they need to be.
- Type of pipework? PVC/HDPE?
Flovac’s engineers have designed hundreds of vacuum sewerage systems and vacuum pump stations but look to work with local and international engineering firms wherever practical. Local engineering firms have a great understanding of client needs and local conditions. These firms rely on Flovac’s expertise with vacuum technology and reduce their risks of being involved in a technology that they do not often get involved with.
Not only do Flovac’s engineers get involved in full designs and extensions to existing systems they are also regularly involved with :-
