Vacuum Sewage Systems Described In Brochure Offered By Envirovac

A free six-page brochure entitled "Envirovac Vacuum Sewage Systems" is being offered by Envirovac Inc. of Rockford, 111.

Using a diagram to depict the elements of a vacuum sewage system, the publication explains what such a system is, and describes in detail three kinds available from Envirovac that offer design flexibility: the Type III Envirovac Vacuum Sewage Collection and Holding System, the Envirovac Standard Column System, and the Envirovac Mini Column System. Each is thoroughly discussed and illustrated with diagram drawings to clearly show how they work.

The Envirovac three-pint water flush vacuum toilet that can reduce sewage volume by 90 percent is also described and illustrated with photos and diagrams. Some of its other benefits include smaller sewage and water holding tanks, reduced water supply systems, and smaller treatment plants.

The literature also points out that Envirovac's ORCA Sewage Treatment Systems are designed to easily interface with any of the three vacuum systems described in the brochure, and that eight standard ORCA models are available (two are Type I and six are Type II). ORCA Type II units are U.S. Coast Guard certified and IMO approved to handle twice the number of people when an Envirovac vacuum system is utilized.
