Marine Harvest salmon processing plant in Herøy, Norway

Food processing plants

Jets™ systems add sanitary benefits for food processing plants, where extreme hygiene is required to ensure the quality and safety of the finished products.

The picture above shows the Marine Harvest salmon processing plant in Herøy, Norway.The ultimate in hygiene is essential at this plant, which is one of the largest in the world. Jets™ vacuum toilets make it possible to keep the sanitary systems completely separate from the production area.

Food safety and hygiene

Consumers and authorities set high standards for food safety. It is vital to pay the utmost attention to hygienic food production. One recall of products or a stop in production because of contaminated food due to poor hygiene can spell disaster for a food producer and its reputation. The flexibility of a Jets™ vacuum system makes it easy to keep sewage in a closed system separate from the production area, contributing to the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene.

Cleaner toilet flushing

Gravity toilets may spread germs and odours with every flush. In Jets™ systems, the powerful vacuum draws the waste along with 60 litres of air into the piping with every flush, reducing aerosols and odours to an absolute minimum.

Infrastructure advantages

It is not uncommon for processing plants to be some distance from municipal sewer connections. The built-in pumping power in the Jets™ system can be used to pump sewage several hundred metres to the nearest connection point. No extra pump is needed for this process. And with 90% less sewage, the load on the infrastructure is far less.It is not uncommon for processing plants to be some distance from municipal sewer connections.

Factory upgrade cost savings

The need for continuous renewal and upgrades of the production facilities involves high costs. The flexibility and adaptability of the Jets™ vacuum system save costs when production facilities are upgraded. It is easy to position sanitary facilities wherever they fit in best in the building.

Difficult terrain

The land around processing plants may be rocky or difficult to excavate. Less excavation is needed for vacuum piping.

Regulations for factory design

Stricter regulations from the authorities may require changes in factory sluices and plumbing installations. This can be difficult to achieve with gravity sanitary systems. Replacing gravity toilets with vacuum technology during renovations makes it easier
to update the factory layout for compliance with new regulations that may be introduced in the future.
