Case Study – Cirencester Hospital

Water Feed to Endoscope Washers

Andrew Fifield of Gloucestershire Care Services NHS Trust sought Fielder’s help whilst managing the estates at Cheltenham General Hospital. Usage of another supplier’s water filters up front of the endoscope washers on site had led to raised total viable count (TVC) results, on the feed water to the automated endoscope reprocesser (AER) washers.

Fileder offered their Premier Pleat Glass Fibre (PPG) and Premier Pleat Polyethersulfone (PPPES) cartridges to go up front of the AERs and the TVC Counts reduced back to zero.

Andrew stayed with the Fileder filters during his time at Cheltenham General Hospital and now utilises the filters on the same application at Cirencester and Stroud Hospitals. The Premier Pleat Polyethersulfone cartridges with bacteria retention rates in excess of log 7 give me the required peace of mind.”

Established for over 4 decades, Fileder Filter Systems is one of the largest independent process filtration and water treatment supplier in the UK. A wide range of filtration and water treatment products are available to order for next day delivery, including carbon blocks, pleated and depth cartridges, housings and RO systems.

I have always found the Fileder products and service to be of the required quality and so have stayed with Fileder for many years
