Mechanical sewage trap

Ratel’s patented mechanical sewage trap is a rat trap that is installed directly in the sewer system. Entering the trap, the rats are led through a chamber leading to the killing unit. In the killing unit you find a flap. When the rat touches the flap with its head – a piston is released with great force. The piston will hit the rat in the neck – and the rat will die immediately.

The piston is driven by a CO2 canister under high pressure. Then the trap drains itself, placing the dead rat at the bottom of the sewer pipe and subsequently rinsing it out with the wastewater.

Rat Block

Rats in the sewer system no longer need to be a threat to food companies, sensitive production companies or our private homes. Christian Thiim has developed a mechanical rat trap that allows us to block the rat’s access to chosen parts of the sewer system – as well as killing rats trying to re-enter this part of the system.

Ratéls rat block is made of stainless steel and is designed so that the wastewater can easily pass in the flow direction, but that rats can’t move past the block in the opposite direction. This is achieved by using double flaps, which are locked together by with a patented locking mechanism.

Ratél, Mechanical Rodent Control

Rats in the sewer system no longer need to be a threat to food companies, sensitive production companies or our private homes. Ratel has developed a mechanical rat trap that allows us to block the rat’s access to chosen parts of the sewer system – as well as killing rats trying to re-enter this part of the system. This opens a door for a whole new and far more strategic approach to the fight against rats.

Principal of Operation

Ratel’s mechanical rat trap is mounted in the sewer system’s pipes. The trap is robustly designed to work in the sewer system’s harsh environment. It is easy to mount from ground level. The rats can’t pass the trap from outside of the protected area – but are led into a killing unit, where they are killed humanely using a CO2-driven piston. After the killing, the rats are flushed out with the wastewater. The same trap can be used for a variety of pipe sizes.

The use of CO2-driven piston for killing the rats is far more human and environmentally friendly than the use of poison. Additionally, problems with poison resistance, which may have fatal consequences, are avoided. If resistance to poison in an area becomes a fact, this kind of rodent control will lose its effect.

The trap also functions as a rat block, which means that rats can’t, get access to the parts of the sewer system, that are protected by the traps. This is also the case in case of malfunction in the killing system. The trap’s flaps are made of fiberglass, and the lock mechanism make the rats unable to lift them.

The trap can be mounted, operated and demounted from the surface – without the technician going down the manhole – and the trap will not prevent the flow of the wastewater.

Strategic Rodent Control

The rats that try to enter the protected area will be killed in the trap and will not cause further problems.

This opens a door for a whole new and far more strategic approach to the fight against rats.

The RatTrap trap is also unique since it adapts to all types and sizes of sewer pipes, as the front part, called inlet, easily can be replaced to fit the given pipe size. This gives an economical solution where the same trap can easily and quickly be moved from one manhole to another and adapted to a new pipe size using only a smaller amount of money. In addition, the trap automatically sends information via a GSM module. The data includes for example; the number of killed rats, flooding in the well, or whether the device needs service.

In addition to the mechanical parts of the mechanical rattrap there is both a software platform where the traps can be managed and an APP that easily helps the technicians to install and service traps.

Principal of Operation

The flaps are constructed of stainless steel and other materials that can’t corrode. The rat block can be mounted in both flow directions in the sewer system.

It works with two flaps which are locked together by with a patented locking mechanism, allowing the waste water easily to pass out of the area desired protected, while the rats can’t move past the block in the opposite direction due to the flaps’s locking system.

Often rats will need to move out of an area to get access to food. It is possible for the rats to pass the rat block in the same direction as the wastewater out of the area, but the rats can’t afterwards pass the rat block and return to the protected area.

The rat block is mounted in the sewer pipe using of a special mounting rod, and is afterwards kept tight in the pipe due to a spring effect in the steel cover surrounding the flaps in the rat block.

Strategic Rodent Control

The strategy for rodent control and protection of an area will typically consist of a combination of the RatTrap ET20 trap in selected pipes, and the use of Ratel’s rat blocks, which prevent penetration of rats from the areas outside the protected area.

The rats that try to enter the protected area will be killed in the trap and will therefore not cause further problems.

This opens a door for a whole new and far more strategic approach to the fight against rats.
