To ensure the proper functioning of the sewage network, urban cleaning activities are a best practice to be carried out regularly. Keeping pipes, wells and drains constantly in good condition prevents clogging, foul odors or sewage loss.
The legislation on environmental protection defines and divides the areas in which to carry out cleaning and maintenance. Let’s see in detail what they are:
– Domestic: this category includes waste water originating from residential settlements. These are substances that derive from human waste that comes from the public, private and service sectors. These are activities generated by homes, condominiums, hotels, schools, barracks, offices, shops and bars.
– Industrial: this class includes waste water produced by structures that perform a commercial or production function. Purification operations concern those that come into contact with non-hazardous polluting substances or materials related to the operation of the plant.
– Urban: relating to waste water that flows into both domestic and industrial sewage networks.
Our compact and combined vacuum units are very versatile equipment. This feature makes them perfect both for cleaning activities in the sectors established by the legislation and for other types of services.
A field of application in which PTC Vacuum machines can be used is the catering or food industry, for the disposal of used oils.
The Italian law decrees that anyone who holds these oils and fats of vegetable or animal origin is obliged to give them to CONOE, the consortium responsible for their collection, transport and storage, or to deliver them to an authorized intermediary.
Restaurants and food industries must follow a procedure for the correct disposal of oils which involves storage in special tanks.
Once the silos are filled, the staff can empty the material that passes from the container owned by the food industry to the tank of the suction unit.
