GRAVITY VACUUM SYSTEM (GVS)
STREAM Gravity Vacuum System is suitable for integration with traditional rubbish chutes found in residential and commercial tower projects in Australia.
Users throw their waste through the indoor chutes and outdoor load stations. The waste are dropped and stored in a storage section which is designed to temporary hold the waste between transport cycles. When the waste reached certain level or due to preset timer, the exhauster fan starts to create airflow from the primary air inlet into the pipe network. The Discharge Valve door opens automatically to unload waste from the temporary storage section into the pipe network to be transported to a sealed container located at the central waste handling facilities. The container is then collected and emptied at specific times by a flatbed armroll truck for final treatment.
This system is suitable for residential developments. Hopper doors are specifically designed to restrict bulky items to be thrown into the load station. These bulky items are usually recyclables. Users are encouraged to separate waste at source and take recyclable items to the designated area.
STREAM Gravity Vacuum System is integrated with safety mechanism. It is safe and suitable for all users including children.
Gravity Vacuum Station Operation
Refuse will be thrown into the chute via Volumetric Control Hopper Door
When the refuse reach to the pre-set level, STREAM Control Centre (SCC) will trigger the Centrifugal Fan (CF) to create the vacuum and airflow inside the piping system.
The Discharge Valve (DV) will be opened to discharge the refuse to piping network. Primary Air Intake (PAI) will be opened to allow the air
The refuse will be transported via the piping network to Bin Center in the speed of 20 – 25 m/s.
In the Bin Center, the refuse and air will be separated in the Waste Container or Waste Separator.
The air will be filtered, DEODORIZED and discharged.
