Environmentally friendly siphon systems
The siphon system offers the most environmentally friendly solution. Van Heck saw its potential very early on and has now acquired wide-ranging expertise and experience in its use. This system is a great example of a sustainable and energy saving solution.
FEATURES OF THE SIPHON SYSTEM
- A siphon system works using the difference in height between the inflow and outflow side of the pipe.
- The air is sucked out of the pipes through a vacuum system comprising three electric vacuum pumps and a vacuum kettle.
- The flow of water on the inflow side of the siphon system causes upward pressure, creating a self-regulating effect.
- A difference in water levels of just a few centimetres is enough for siphoning.
- Flow rates can reach up to 25,000 m3 per hour per pipe.
- A siphon system is highly sustainable due to the limited operational costs and low sound level, and it can run on just one litre of fuel per day.
- The system can also be customised with an alarm, automatic valves and flow registration and limitation.
