The Flexcrevator surpasses manual emptying by enabling fast, safe, and hygienic fecal sludge removal. The machine comprises of two parts. The Portable Vacuum System pumps sludge from the pit and into storage barrels. The Trash Excluder uses a unique, rotating head that prevents trash from entering the machine. The result is smooth, trash-free sludge ready to be transported off-site for safe disposal. The Excluder also connect to a vacuum truck, allowing trucks to empty pits that were previously off limits due to trash.
The Flexcrevator's small footprint and modular design allows workers access to pit latrines in narrow alleyways. Our clean and contained design limits a worker's contact with fecal sludge. By creating a mechanized way to efficiently remove pit latrine waste, we elevate the profession of pit emptying.
