Saniflo unveils two new lift stations, with a clog-reducing vortex impeller to handle up to 2-inch solids

New Sanicubic Vortex Series, offering both simplex and duplex models, will handle drainage from multiple fixtures in residential or commercial structures, with discharge rates up to 250 gpm.

EDISON, NJ (JUNE 4, 2019) — Saniflo U.S.A.® parent company has unveiled the next generation in its Sanicubic range of preassembled, simplex and duplex lift stations: the Sanicubic Vortex Series, featuring a vortex-type impeller that delivers clog-free handling of solids up to two inches in diameter. The new series is engineered for highly demanding, rugged-duty applications that involve much larger or harder objects than what is typically flushed down a toilet.

Like the original Sanicubic 1 and Sanicubic 2 models, the new Vortex Series is intended to provide above-floor drainage for multiple plumbing fixtures for an entire residential or commercial structure, thus eliminating the need for costlier and less convenient pit installations.

Also like the previous series, two models are available: the Sanicubic 1VX, equipped with a single, 1.5-horsepower motor (“simplex”); and the Sanicubic 2VX, equipped with two such motors (“duplex”). Both new lift stations are capable of discharging through two-inch or four-inch rigid pipe and offer a shut-off head of 43 feet. Both are meant to be connected to a high voltage (220V-240V).

Powerful vortex technology: The difference between the two types of lift station can be seen in the way their pumps handle drainage. The Sanicubic 1 and Sanicubic 2 use a heavy-duty, stainless-steel blade to grind up waste and sanitary products, pumping them to a sewer line or septic tank as a fine slurry.

The Sanicubic 1VX and 2VX use a specially designed pump impeller to create a vortex action as the effluent enters the enclosure. This technology keeps solids away from the impeller as it turns, pushing waste rapidly through the pump and to the discharge pipe. In doing so, the possibility of clogging is substantially reduced.

The Sanicubic 1 and Sanicubic 2 grinder systems are designed to handle conventional waste and even sanitary products quickly and completely, according to Saniflo CEO Regis Saragosti. “But the vortex technology of the Sanicubic 1VX and 2VX sets the bar even higher with its ability to handle materials that should not end up in a toilet — foreign objects, small rocks, large pieces of debris, and so forth.”

Up to 250 gpm flow rate: The maximum height either pump can discharge is 36 feet, using two-inch diameter pipe; and 20 feet, using four-inch pipe. Flow rates vary, depending on the discharge-pipe diameter and the elevation the flow must overcome, ranging from 26 gallons per minute (gpm) at 36 feet of head with a two-inch pipe and one motor operating; to 250 gpm at 3 feet of head with a four-inch pipe and both motors operating. (See chart on page 4.) Both systems are designed to work with either a municipal sewer system or a septic tank.

The durable, waterproof enclosure for both units meets IP68 standards,making it possible for the systemsto remain fully operational whensubmerged in water.Dimensions for the Sanicubic 1VX (capacity: 15.9 gallons) are 27-5/8 inches wide, 21-5/8 inches deep, and 19-7/8 inches high; for the Sanicubic 2VX (31.7 gallons), 36 inches wide x 28 inches deep x 29-5/8 high.

“White-glove” servicing: Featuring easily removable circular panels on top, the IP68 enclosure permits ready access to every major component inside. The result is easier and much cleaner servicing than conventional, below-floor systems whose maintenance can entail wading into a pit full of waste.

The Sanicubic 1VX and the Sanicubic 2VX both employ an internal air pressure switch for automatically cycling the units on and off. “This technology is far more reliable and precise than a conventional float mechanism,” explains Saniflo’s Regis Saragosti.

Both units also come equipped with a wired control panel, as well as external audible and visual LED indicator alarm in the event that apump experiences overload or ceases to operate.

“The two vortex models extend our Sanicubic offering in innovative ways that give contractors and facility managers a fuller range of products to meet an equally wide range of heavy-duty applications, residential and commercial,” says Saragosti. “They are only the latest examples of Saniflo’s commitment to create products that install easily and perform reliably, while being simple to maintain.”
