Jun 13, 2018

Why settle with conventional wastewater equipment when the ALAR Auto-Vac® is a cost-effective solution to regulatory discharge and solids disposal compliance? Manufactured and serviced by ALAR since 1970, the Auto-Vac® is ALAR’s flagship equipment.

Benefits of ALAR’s Auto-Vac® Rotary Vacuum Drum Filter (RVDF) include:

  1. The Auto-Vac® is a non-segmented drum filter
    • The non-segmented drum, high vacuum, and variable adjustments are what allow ALAR to claim faster flows per square foot vs. others in the industry.
  2. ALAR’s Auto-Vac® vacuum is drawn through 100% of the filter drum surface
  3. The Auto-Vac® pulls up to 27” of mercury (vacuum) through patented design for:
    • Faster flows
    • Drier solids
    • Smaller footprint (square footage needed)
    • Less DE consumption
  4. The Auto-Vac® features:
    • Independent adjustable drum drive speed
    • Independent adjustable knife speed
    • Independent adjustable filter pan level control
  5. ALAR parts are available for next-day delivery
    • ALAR vacuum pumps are on consignment (others have 10-20 week lead times)
