Flovac vacuum sanitation in field hospitals
Facing COVID-19: Flovac vacuum sanitation in field hospitals
Flovac installed its vacuum sewerage system in three field hospitals in Valencia, Castellón and Alicante (Spain). To provide service to the provisional hospitals, Flovac took its plug & play system. This system is ideal for temporary facilities, as it is effective, it doesn’t create odor problems, obstructions and neither is necessary to build in the field. Furthermore, it is a complete system, which means that besides collecting the wastewater it includes a portable vacuum station. There is no need for tanker trucks to move the waste.

In this case, the station was settled in two benches connected between them and with the catch basins with hoses. For the construction of the field hospitals a concrete slab to set the tents was built, along with corrugated tubes to let the sanitation hoses go through the facilities. The hoses go from some courtyards in the center of the hospital, where the toilet modules were installed. There are found the catch basins as well, which collet the wastewater, and the vacuum valve. It is where the vacuum network starts.
