Redivac’s vacuum system can be used to collect a variety of fluids, the most common of which is the collection of sewage from within domestic housing developments.

The three main components of a vacuum sewerage system are:-

1. Valve Chambers.

These collect effluent discharged from the connected properties and allow the collected sewage to enter the vacuum sewer network via the Redivac interface valve.

2. Vacuum Sewers.

These form the pipe network which is under vacuum and allows the sewage to be transported to the vacuum station.

3. Vacuum Station.

This is the operation centre from where the whole of the vacuum sewerage system is controlled and monitored. Here the vacuum pumps generate the vacuum throughout the system and it is where the sewage is held in the collection vessel. From here it is pumped to the sewage treatment plant or nearby gravity sewer.
