AcornVac Vacuum Plumbing and Drainage Systems provide an alternate
to gravity drainage of condensate, gray water and sanitary waste.
Typical sanitary and gray water applications include toilets,
sinks, showers, urinals, and drinking fountains. Typical condensate
applications include refrigeration coils servicing coolers and
freezers as well as frozen and refrigerated food display cases.

FLEXIBILITY IN DESIGN & LAYOUT OF FIXTURES AND EQUIPMENT
Vacuum drainage piping can be routed where most convenient
including overhead or through voids in ceiling spaces, eliminating
the need for under slab piping and providing owners and designers
unlimited freedom to locate fixtures or equipment throughout
REDUCED WATER USAGE & SEWER OUTPUT
AcornVac vacuum toilets use ½ gallon of water per flush,
providing a significant reduction in annual water and sewage
costs when compared to conventional toilets. This is of great
benefit anywhere, especially in areas where water conservation
is important, or in areas where sewer mains or treatment facilities
are already heavily impacted.
REDUCED PIPING REQUIREMENTS
Pipe sizes in a vacuum plumbing system are significantly reduced – in
most cases up to 50%. And because the system is closed, there
is no requirement for venting and associated roof penetrations.
In addition, unlike conventional slope requirements of gravity
drainage systems, vacuum system drainage piping requires minimal
slope that can be recovered at intervals and can be conveniently
routed around obstacles.
REDUCED CONSTRUCTION COSTS
Smaller diameter piping and the elimination of vent piping
reduces material and labor costs. Project completion schedules
can be accelerated. Minimizing the drain line depth in campus
arranged systems can reduce trenching and shoring costs.
