Grandeur of the Seas

 
Jets™ supplied Vacuumarator™ pump units to Royal Caribbean's 1,950-guest luxury ship as boosters for the existing ejector system. The retrofit was installed without interruption to the cruise schedule.

The higher vacuum capacity resulted in smoother operation, lower temperatures, less foaming and greater efficiency.

By installing a new heart into their ejector system they have experienced improved performance.
 
 
 

São Paulo University

 
This Brazil university reduced its water costs from USD $1,800 a day to just USD $320 a day after installing Jets™ toilets and two Vacuumarator™ units.

360,000 liters of water is now saved every day compared to the previous traditional toilet system.

Brazil's steep water prices meant that the Jets™ system paid for itself in just 15 months after installation - a solid investment for the university.
 
 
 

Crystal Harmony

 
During its normal sailing schedule in the summer of 2001, this 940-guest luxury cruise ship replaced one of its four ejector-based systems with a Vacuumarator™ pump unit retrofit.

After the test period, three more Vacuumarator™ pump units were installed, and the impressive performance has been maintained since then. The feedback from the "Crystal Harmony" crew is that the pumps function well and build up the vacuum efficiently.

Only after three years of the intensive operation did it become necessary to change bearings, macerators and seals in the pumps. With the simple design of our pumps, crews are able to carry out this type of maintenance themselves with basic tools.

The collecting tanks from the ejector system are no longer used, and foaming has become a foreign word.
