AcornVac Vacuum Toilets Produce No Detectable Bacterial Contamination from Flush in NSF Testing

AcornVac’s vacuum toilets were recently found to produce no bacterial contamination from flush overspray in testing by NSF International.

AcornVac’s vacuum toilets were tested side-by-side with gravity flush toilets to compare the flush plume produced by AcornVac’s vacuum toilets with that produced by two common types of gravity flush toilets. NSF International’s report of test results showed that AcornVac’s vacuum toilets produced no detectable levels of bacterial on the toilet seat or area surrounding the toilet, whereas both gravity flush toilets had detectable levels of bacteria on the toilet seat and the area surrounding the toilet.

Gravity Toilet

Gravity Toilets create turbulence in the toilet bowl when flushed. As a result, water mist with millions of particles of bacteria is created and migrates out of the toilet bowl and onto the toilet seat and surrounding area

Vacuum Toilet

Vacuum toilets evacuate waste by pulling air into the toilet, eliminating all splash, mist and bacterial migration.
