Vacuum Bubble® Technology: A Brief History
In the early 1970’s, Vacuum Bubble® Technology was first used in livestock production. The elimination of odor and sludge in manure storage pits and lagoons along with the reduction of corrosive gases in animal confinement buildings through the use of VBT™ became a major contributor to the development of environmentally sound agriculture.
By the 1990s, Vacuum Bubble® Technology had been adapted to improve the operation of home septic tanks. Addition of the Vacuum Bubble® Technology Aerator to an existing or new home septic tank showed that a clear, odorless effluent was produced, and there was a reduction in the need for regular sludge pumping. It was also found that the use of VBT™ extended the life of drain fields. A further refinement of the Vacuum Bubble® Technology Aerator was the development of a retrofit kit for installation in failed aerobic treatment units.
In 2001, with the colaboration of Advanced Aeration International (AAI) and the Space Alliance Technology Outreach Program (SATOP) the technology was further developed in the aquaculture environment. The use of VBT™ demonstrated increased survival rates and increased yields of fish in breeding ponds.
All kitchen waste from restaurants is held in underground grease traps and the VBT™ was shown to reduce costs through the less frequent need for grease trap pumping. Customers and restaurant staff were also pleased by the elimination of offensive grease trap odors. Cleaner grease trap effluent also meant less clogging and fewer backups in kitchen drains.
