In the collection area the materials are sorted and compacted into their respective containers.Landfill trash and recycling drop into their respective compactors.Soiled linen bags drop into their respective carts.The pneumatic system is driven by efficient high-performance fans.The diverter separates waste which can be recycled from landfill trash.The separators segregate materials from the air, and then compress them into their designated containers.Before being released outside, air is carried through the blue pipes to the purifier which filters the air to remove harmful particles before being released back to the atmosphere.
Envac’s user-friendly system provides a safe and efficient way to transport landfill waste, soiled linen, and recyclables.
Here’s how it works:
Waste or linen is deposited into a system load station located on each floor. The operator simply swipes their card to initialize the system, which allows for continued operation. Next, the operator selects whether they want to dispose of recycling, trash, or soiled linen.
Once the selection has been made, the interlocked door becomes accessible to the station while the secondary door remains locked. The Q-Chute™ then accepts a full cart of waste or linens.
Our automated conveying system ensures that waste and linens are safely transported, preventing staff exposure to airborne pathogens and reducing the risk of injury.
