CLEAN WASTEWATER DISPOSAL PierPump – Trouble-free disposal of waste and bilge water from boats and yachts. When installing a wastewater management system harbor operators have to make several decisions depending on the location, number of berths and size to find the optimal system. The Vogelsang PierPump is a customer-oriented high-performance solution, which is easy to operate and allows bilge water or black water to be pumped directly into the sewage system. The integrated rotary lobe pump means that the PierPump is resistant to foreign matter, so that the vacuum extraction process does not come to stop if the wastewater contains foreign matter. Wastewater tanks are vacuum extracted in a very short time, and the voyage can continue. VOGELSANG LEADING IN TECHNOLOGY
