Benefits of a vacuum sewer system

The Vacuflow® system revolutionizes in wastewater transport with its clean and highly efficient design, providing an environmentally acceptable solution. In comparison to conventional sewerage systems, the Vacuflow® system offers numerous advantages. Discover more about these benefits in the following article.

The Vacuflow® system surpasses conventional sewerage systems in many applications, offering a superior and more cost-effective alternative. The system’s low investment costs make it an attractive option for those who are seeking economical and eco-friendly waste management solutions. Furthermore, its low-maintenance nature saves valuable time and resources. Operating within a closed and leak-proof vacuum network, the system ensures fail-safe functionality, benefiting the environment by preventing sewage from escaping and polluting surrounding areas.

Moreover, the Vacuflow® system’s simplicity enables the use of shallow trenching, resulting in substantial cost savings and reduced installation time. The employment of small-diameter pipes significantly reduces labour and material expenses compared to gravity sewers. The shallow and narrow trenching, made possible by the small diameter mains installed just below frost level, minimizes construction time and environmental disruptions. The system’s flexibility offers easy installation around unforeseen obstructions, minimizing delays and eliminating additional costs.

In addition, the Vacuflow® system boasts low energy consumption, making it a highly sustainable and eco-friendly choice for waste management. The only spot in the system using energy is the vacuum station. With its remarkable efficiency, it effectively caters to a wide range of applications, particularly in areas where costly and extensive construction work is to be avoided. It proves ideal for flat areas with high groundwater tables, seaside areas, environmentally sensitive areas, rocky terrains, islands, artificial islands and locations where space constraints make traditional sewerage system installations challenging.
