University Hospital of São Paulo

Hospitals across the world

From Ireland to Brazil, Jets™ covers the need for better sanitary systems in hospitals. Vacuum toilets offer new and better solutions for sewage isolation and hygiene.

Incor, São Paulo

The picture above shows the University Hospital of São Paulo, where 5 vacuum toilets were installed at Incor (the hospital's Heart Institute) in a pilot project. Incor is one of the world's leading cardiology institutions.

The installation was completed in two stages. During each stage, half of the emergency room was closed down for the installation - the other half continued functioning normally.

The hospitals featured below have also benefitted greatly from installing Jets™ systems:


Les Cadrans Solaires hospital, France

Vacuum sanitary systems can be installed without closing down hospital sections. With small-diameter vacuum pipes, there is much less need for core drilling and the resulting noise and dust.

This hospital in France, Les Cadrans Solaires, has 138 vacuum toilets. These were installed during renovation of the building with very little impact on the normal hospital functions.

The system has functioned reliably since it started operating in 1993.

Belfast City Hospital, Ireland

At the Belfast City Hospital, renowned for its work in cancer diagnosis, treatment and research, Jets™ sanitary systems provide a practical and effective solution for storing radioactive sewage until the radioactivity has been reduced to a safe level.

The low volume of sewage from vacuum toilets simplifies this process. Greater hygiene with less risk of aerosol contamination from flushing toilets is another important factor.


Hospital-acquired infections are a growing concern. A Jets™ toilet draws air and pathogens into the vacuum system with every flush. Practically no aerosols are released into the room.

Isolation of sewage

Sewage contaminated by radioactive isotopes poses a risk to the environment. Jets™ sanitary solutions make it possible to install a sealed system for isolating radioactive sewage until the radioactivity has been reduced to a safe level. The low volume of sewage from a vacuum sanitary system simplifies this process.


Hospital renovations may disturb patients and make it necessary to close sections of the hospital. Vacuum sanitary systems with small diameter pipes can be installed in existing facilities with much less downtime and disturbance to patients than gravity systems involve. There is less need for floor and ceiling penetration, with the resulting dust produced by concrete drilling. Sewage can even be pumped upwards.
