Hospitals & Health-Vacuum Drainage

Hospitals and Health

Vacuum sewerage systems offer a number of benefits when installed in Hospitals and Health Care Centres including:

  • A vacuum toilet uses only 1.8 litres of water per flush. This provides a significant savings in water supply and sewer disposal costs and may contribute to “green building” stars.

  • Creates a cleaner environment and reduces the health hazards associated with renovation in an open facility. The operational dynamics of a vacuum plumbing system prevent waste ex-filtration, ensuring that contaminants stay within the waste piping network. The system dynamics also benefit the facility by reducing main line blockages, resulting in lower maintenance cost and operational disruption.

  • The system contributes to a healthier, more sanitary environment, by eliminating the vaporisation of water from the toilet bowl during a flush. This minimises the spread of bacteria around the toilet fixture and within the facility.

 

 

 

  • Vacuum provides a solution for routing waste piping through congested, space restricted areas. Because vacuum waste piping can be installed overhead and easily routed around existing mechanical, electrical or structural elements, it facilitates the relocation of plumbing fixtures and equipment without impacting floors below, and without concern for coordination with existing waste piping.
