The Sanipack is a macerator pump specifically engineered for use with built-in bathroom units. An extra-slim profile allows the necessary pipework to be concealed, whether being used with back-to-wall or wall-hung sanitary ware.
The Sanipack can handle all waste from a WC, as well as waste water from a wash basin and shower. Waste can be pumped up to five metres vertically, and 100 metres horizontally, making it the perfect solution for bathrooms in nearly any situation.
All the features and benefits of Sanipack mean it is the ideal choice for a modern, sleek finish in a complete shower room installation.
The inside of the Sanipack is comprised of a pressure chamber, which starts and stops the unit, and the motor, which drives the stainless steel macerator blades and the pump.
When the flush is activated, the water flowing into the Sanipack activates a micro switch in the pressure chamber which in turn starts the motor. The motor is sealed for life in an oil filled enclosure. A common spindle/shaft drives the impeller and the macerator blades. The moving parts therefore are kept to an absolute minimum. Water and organic waste matter enter the chamber and are reduced to slurry as the macerator blades rotate at 3600 RPM. The centrifugal force causes the reduced solids to be ejected through a grill into the container where it is picked up by the impeller pump mounted beneath the motor.
Once the water is discharged and the water level in the container goes down, the micro switch deactivates the unit until the flush is activated again. A normal operating cycle for Sanipack takes about 7-9 seconds depending upon the discharge pipe run configuration; power consumption is therefore minimal.
In addition to the toilet waste, the Sanipack will also discharge gray water from a variety of other sanitary fixtures such as: a sink, a shower and a urinal. When adding a shower, a base will have to be constructed. This base should be made out of a 2″ x 6″ (minimum) or 2” x 8” (recommended) on edge, to allow for the installation of a P-trap and the required 1/4”per foot gravity flow towards the pump unit.
The wastewater from other sanitary fixtures is discharged into the Sanipack via two 1-1/2 inch inlets on either side of the housing. Either one or both inlets can be used as required. The discharge elbow on top of the Sanipack can be turned either to the left, to the right, or towards the back, depending on the discharge installation. A non-return valve, which comes already assembled on the discharge elbow, prevents back flow into the unit.
The Sanipack is designed to be used with a wall hung toilet. The depth of the case allows for this pump to be installed within the wall. Since the reservoir, the macerating pump and the pipes are hidden from view.
