Smartrek: Vacuum Sewer Monitoring
Vacuum sewer uses vacuum pumps to maintain a continuous vacuum pressure on the system and collection system, ensuring that wastewater is conveyed from properties to a treatment facility efficiently. Vacuum valves at each sewage input point seal the system; when this happens, the differential pressure propels the wastewater through the piping to the vacuum station. To minimize disruption caused by malfunctions, a remote monitoring system can be used to monitor the system and response times from multiple locations. This allows for quick and proper identification and resolution of any issues that may arise, helping to maintain the system’s smooth operation.
Prior using our monitoring solution many operators experienced that it can take a while to trace the source of an issue in a vacuum sewer system, but once they’ve identified the issue, it can be fixed quickly.
