Evac VacuConvert gives designers more choice by converting gravity toilets
Vacuum toilets offer many advantages on luxury yachts and specialized cruise vessels including lower water consumption and a more efficient action. In the past, designers have tended to choose traditional gravity toilets because they are available in a wider range of colors and styles, but now Evac has developed a solution that gives them the best of both worlds.
The Evac VacuConvert enables conventional wall-mounted gravity toilets to be easily and inexpensively turned into vacuum toilets. A special wall mounted frame, which can be concealed beneath panelling, enables them to be connected to the Evac vacuum collection system. This is compatible with a wide range of gravity toilet models and broadens the range of options for yacht interior designers.
After conversion, the toilet uses just 2.5 litres (0.6 gallon) per flush, a considerable water saving, amounting to thousands of litres over the period of a year. As designers look toward new ways of conserving water and reducing the environmental impact of vessels, the VacuConvert provides a reliable solution. The Evac VacuConvert front access panel, available as an extra, allows maintenance work to be carried out quickly and easily, if required.
Evac is the world’s leading provider of integrated water and waste management systems, as well as corrosion protection systems for marine, offshore and building industries. Their cutting edge solutions and services have been helping leading international companies to significantly reduce their environmental footprint for 40 years.
