The Sanicom 1 model was designed to sustain the most demanding applications meant for gray water pumps. Its pumping capabilities and unique design are why this range of pumps is preferred for heavy-duty applications.
The inside of the Sanicom 1 comprises a pressure switch and a circuit board assembly, which starts and stops the unit, a powerful 1-HP motor, which starts the motor.
The motor is sealed for life in an oil-filled enclosure. A spindle/shaft drives the impeller, and therefore the moving parts are kept to an absolute minimum. Water enters the chamber and is pumped away into the sanitary sewer.
The unit pumps the effluent upward to 25 feet or 250 feet horizontally (with gravity fall). Once the water is discharged and the water level in the container goes down, the pressure switch deactivates the unit until water enters the unit again. A standard operating cycle for the Sanicom 1 can be as short as 2 - 10 seconds depending upon the discharge pipe run configuration; power consumption is therefore minimal.
The Sanicom 1 handles up to 194°F water, making it perfect for commercial kitchen applications where dishwashers must operate at exceptionally high temperatures to meet health and sanitation standards. In addition, the unit is specially designed to withstand liquids with highly acidic properties, such as wastewater from processing applications. It's essential to use the proper pipe rated for high temperature on the discharge and the inlets.
The wastewater from other sanitary fixtures is discharged into the Sanicom 1 via two 2-inch inlets on either housing side. Depending on the discharge installation, the discharge elbow on top of the Sanicom1 can be turned either to the left, to the right, or towards the back. A non-return valve, provided with the system, prevents backflow into the unit.
This unit has been designed with a vent connection on top of the enclosure. All plumbing codes require connection to a vent system. Please note that the vent system should be a two-way air vent. Mechanical vents, air admittance valves, or similar devices are not permitted as these are considered one-way air vent systems.
It is also highly recommended that the gray water pump be connected to a Ground Fault Interrupter (GFI) circuit.
