Saniflo has announced it is providing two 610 Sanifos lifting stations and a Sanivite grey water pump to a new dental school in Bristol, which will have dental clinics and 119 dental chairs.
The new equipment enables students to put theory into practice using the modern equipment available in a renovated building in the heart of the city. The installation was completed by Briggs and Forrester Engineering Services, and it will will open in September 2023.
Nathan Thomas, senior mechanical engineer at Briggs and Forrester Engineering Services, said: “Saniflo products are robust and durable and we know we can rely on them to do a good job. The support from the Saniflo team is always exceptional, whether it is a site visit or a technical phone call, and the units are easy to install and maintain. They solved our drainage challenges at the dental school with ease.”
The first of the Sanifos 610 lifting stations takes the water from a 20,000-litre booster tank in an adjacent plant room during routine maintenance and cleaning, it also provides an overflow for excess water.
The second Sanifos 610 is situated directly beneath the clinical rooms, it takes waste from compressed air and suction drainage tools used by the trainee dentists.
A third unit, a compact Sanivite+ grey water lifting station, was specified to take wastewater samples once per week from side stream filters that monitor the heating and chilling systems throughout the whole building. Water is frequently tested, and the resulting wastewater is pumped out through the Sanivite+ to mains drains.
