Evac designs and manufactures environmentally friendly wet and dry waste collection and treatment systems for the shipbuilding industry. These systems, such as the Evac 910 vacuum toilet and OnlineMAX vacuum-and-discharge system, offer maintenance-cost savings for the operator, and comfort of use for the passenger thanks to reduced maintenance needs and quieter operation. Evac will present these and other systems at Cruise Shipping Miami 2009 from March 17 to 19 on the French pavilion, booth 1058.

A common complaint from cruise ship passengers relates to noise generated by the flushing vacuum toilets. Evac has come up with a solution to this problem with its recently launched Evac 910, the quietest vacuum toilet on the market. Incorporating a patented quick-relief valve, the Evac 910 is around 5 to 8 dB lower than other vacuum toilets on the market. An integrated miniature check valve makes servicing easier and reduces the spare parts requirements. Inclusion of a new bypass valve allows flushing manually from the service area. The complete backplate can be removed through the service space or cabin by removing two screws.  A vacuum guard unit ensures there is sufficient vacuum in the pipes to carry out efficient flushing and prevent blockages in the piping. The Evac 910 has been tested for a lifecycle of 300,000 flushes.

The OnlineMAX vacuum generation and waste discharge system is specially designed to meet the need for more energy-efficient vacuum capacity on large passenger vessels. Today’s cruise ships can achieve significant savings with the OnlineMAX, with an ROI of two-to-three years. Utilizing a minimum footprint design, fully automatic operation, robust design, and vacuum performance independent of discharge requirement, OnlineMAX is simply the best solution for vacuum generation.

Evac is the most experienced supplier of vacuum toilets and wastewater management solutions for the ship building industry, with more than 30 years of experience in the business. It has more than 9,500 references from sailing boats to large luxury cruise liners to military aircraft carriers. Its premises are located in Espoo, Finland; Machesney Park, Illinois; Paris, France; Shanghai,China; and Notodden,Norway. Evac is part of the French Zodiac Marine & Pool Group.
