Transvac have supplied an Evac Easyfit vacuum collection set for installation onboard P&O Ferry ‘Pride of Kent’. The modular equipment set was supplied readily assembled on skid-mounts to provide an alternative means of vacuum collection for the existing sanitary arrangement whilst the system was under maintenance .
Evac’s Easyfit Units are an ideal retrofit solution that can be mounted directly onto a ship’s hull tank, or connected to a sewage treatment plant as a combined unit. Powered by the pump, the ejector creates a vacuum in the piping. When the collected and air pumped from the tank pass the nozzle at high pressure, it causes a Venturi effect that pulls the air and wastewater from the inlet. The aeration effect on the sewage means that there is no need for additional aeration. In turn, this eliminates hazardous hydrogen sulphide gases and unpleasant odours from the aerobic wastewater process.
