Largest Order for DN80 Received from Meyer Werft Group
December 7, 2016
Transvac Systems have received an order for up to twenty nine DN80 Stainless Steel Transtraps which are to be included in vacuum sewage systems scheduled for installation on various newbuildings at Meyer Werft’s Papenburg, Rostock and Turku facilities during 2017 and 2018.
The Transtrap Solids Trap is a Tine Filter which has been designed to effectively capture large scale debris (such as Rags, Rope, Bolts and Bottles etc) prior to entering the Ejectors and Pumps.
Large scale debris is caught by the vertical filter tines and falls to the bottom of the filter sump, effectively taking it off‐line prior to entering and fouling Vacuum Generating Equipment ( Online Pumps and Ejectors).
The Transtrap Solids Trap is supplied in sizes DN50, DN65 and DN80 and can be manufactured in either Stainless (AISI 304 or AISI 316) or Galvanised Steel.
The filters are usually installed in‐line and adjacent to the Vacuum Centrals to gain maximum effect. A bypass line is also fitted to the arrangement in order to allow the operator to open and clean the unit without having to take the entire Vacuum Toilet Systems off‐line.
