Abstract:Vacuum sewers are mechanized systems for wastewater transport. They utilize differential air pressure to create flow rather than using gravity-induced flow, like conventional gravity wastewater collection systems. In this respect, a vacuum system is essentially a negative pressure system. However, there are considerable differences between vacuum or negative pressure transport and the technology of positive pressure transport.
