With its resistance to high water temperatures and its ability to directly connect to high-efficiency washing machines, the 1-horsepower Sanicom 1 simplex drain pump from Saniflo is designed to pump gray water away from demanding commercial applications, such as restaurants.
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.
Other applications that can benefit from the Sanicom 1 are high efficiency washing machines used in commercial applications, which can connect directly into the pump, rather than indirectly through a laundry tray, eliminating the extra cost and installation of a utility sink. In addition, the unit is specially designed to withstand liquids with highly acidic properties, such as wastewater from processing applications.
“Saniflo’s Sanicom 1 is a versatile drain pump that can effectively serve a variety of customer needs – from restaurant managers seeking to drain high-temperature dish water, to processing engineers needing to pump out wastewater resulting from food production,” says Regis Saragosti, CEO of Saniflo USA.
The Sanicom 1 is capable of reliably and efficiently handling multiple gray water fixtures simultaneously, including commercial dishwashers, washing machines and other heavy-duty wastewater applications.
Gray water enters through one of two side inlets, both measuring 2 inches, before being pumped to the drain line through a 1-inch rigid discharge pipe, which can remove up to 33 gallons per minute (gpm). The system includes a rubber discharge elbow that adapts to the discharge pipe and can be rotated 360 degrees, as well as a non-return valve.
Sanicom 1 is able to discharge gray water up to 25 feet vertically, 250 feet horizontally, or a combination of both. (A vertical run of 3 feet is equal to a horizontal run of 30 feet.) It should be noted that when draining wastewater into the pump through either of the side inlets, an external check valve (not supplied) needs to be installed. The powerful, 1-horsepower motor and a non-clogging impeller design allow the unit to pass laundry lint and other small solids up to 3/8 inches in diameter.
The unit vents through a 1-1/4-inch vent connection located on top. A two-way air vent should be used to allow free air flow both ways.
Install it Anywhere
Unlike conventional plumbing installations, which may involve the hassle and expense of breaking through concrete to connect to a drain line, the Sanicom 1 above-floor plumbing system allows for a dishwasher or washing machine wherever needed.
The two side inlets are located close to the floor, helping to speed installation by reducing the height at which floor-level plumbing fixtures must sit to achieve proper drainage.
“Whether a restaurant wants to add a bar, or a hotel needs to move its laundry area away from the drain line, Sanicom 1 provides the cost- and labor-friendly solution,” says Saragosti. “Innovative solutions like the Sanicom 1 offer the power and flexibility to add new plumbing fixtures wherever they work best.”
The Sanicom 1 will be available for shipment to Saniflo distributors in May 2017 and will have an MSRP of $785.
