Technology evolution

Vacuum systems have evolved greatly over the years, and were revolutionized when Jets™ launched the Vacuumarator™ pump in 1986. The improvement from earlier systems was massive in terms of both system reliability and saving space and costs. We have put together a few illustrations to help you understand the evolution of vacuum systems from the 1950's to present date.


Fifties and sixties solution

First generation vacuum sanitary systems were large and bulky, including an expensive vacuum tank. They required several pumps to operate satisfactorily.

One set of pumps maintained the vacuum in the system's large tank, while a second set of discharge pumps was used to empty the tank's contents.

Seventies and eighties solution

The ejector system launched in the late seventies was an improvement over the first generation. However, it was still a system of considerable size.

As in the first generation systems, several pumps were needed to operate an ejector system. A recirculation tank was also needed for vacuum generation, and this caused other problems such as foaming.

Millenium solution

The patented Vacuumarator™ pump made by Jets™ revolutionized the industry when it was released in the eighties.

The new generation launched in 2000 is the most compact, efficient and reliable vacuum generator available for vacuum toilet systems.

The Vacuumarator™ pump is a 3-in-1 pump that can create vacuum, macerate sewage and transport that sewage directly to a sewage treatment plant, a sewage tank, a biogas plant or the public sewer system.
