Projects - Macerator for processing waste in remote areas


Project Brief: Develop a means of turning toilet waste into slurry that can easily be pumped to sanitation tanks for disposal in remote areas without sewage pipe network; or for toilets that are below the main sewage pipe flow level. A waterproof and maintenance free motor with 10,000 hrs life was designed with two chambers, cutter and one way valves. The electric motor worked on 12V DC and AC mains with one press button that operated all the processes. Housed in a fibre-glass moulded tank with press-on fittings.
