The purity of the water used in dialysis is critical to effectively and efficiently clean the blood of patients. Impurities such as chlorine and chloramines in the water and system can cause health problems with the patient, requiring a subsequent increase in medicines used for treatment. The removal of bacteria and endotoxins from central renal dialysis loops is also essential.

Stages of Filtration & Water Treatment

Hardness Removal

Prevents scale build up on tanks, pipework and equipment

Hardness Removal - Fileder Filter Systems

Chlorine, Chloramine and Organics Removal

Helps the taste and odour of the liquid and where present, protects RO membranes from chemical attack.

Particle Removal

Prevents debris, scale flakes, dirt and particle build up in pipework, tanks, equipment and where present, premature blinding of filtration stages further along the cascade.

Ions and Salts Removal

Very pure water is produced using reverse osmosis membranes to separate the majority of salts and ions from the feed water and sending the salts and ions to waste or re-circulation.

Airborne Bacteria Removal

Removal of airborne bacteria to prevent contamination of stored liquid.

Ultraviolet Disinfection

UV light impedes bacterial growth by sterilising the DNA of microorganisms, suppressing biofilm and bacteria colony growth.

Endotoxin Removal

Absolute microfiltration at very low micron ratings remove parts of bacteria that breakdown in the system.
