Waste water system for Nuclear Therapy


Kwint MNT can provide a turn-key waste and decay plant for nuclear therapy wards.
The Waste water from the toilets, showers and appliances  will be drained via a Vaccuum system, this system ensures all waste is moved to shielded tanks located in a technical room.
in comparison with traditional gravity based system a lot less shielding is needed because the pipes need no shielding.

Vaccuum toilets are hygienic and use only 1.2 liter water to flush.

it is not necessary to shield the pipes due to the vacuum no contamination can build up in the system, risk free and easy maintenance.

the advantages of this system are:

  • less water consumption than traditional gravity tanks.
  • fail safe design, all serviceable parts are installed double.
  • No worse case scenario
  • Max. only 16 litres per day per patient - Normal gravity needs 48 litres a day
  • 100 % controlling of all contaminated waste water during the whole process
  • Continues monitoring of the water before storing in the decay tanks
  • The concentration of activity is well-known before problems arise
  • No extra shielding of the piping - speed – normal gravity needs shielding
  • No leakage from the pipes because of the vacuum system
  • No uncontrolled discharge in the sewage
  • no risky service on the system
