One of the most important areas for water quality in a hospital. Water is used to clean instruments and critical components of systems used during operations and procedures on patients. Water for the water disinfectors should be softened whereas water used in the production of clean steam or treated steam for the autoclaves, must be of very high purity to remove bacteria, salts, ions and other elements that may cause cross-contamination.

Storage tanks benefit from the use of air vent filtration to prevent airborne bacterial contamination and the same air vent filter is used on the autoclave itself as a vacuum break.

Stages of Filtration & Water Treatment

Hardness Removal

Prevents scale build up on tanks, pipework and equipment.

Hardness Removal - Fileder Filter Systems

Chlorine 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.

Ion and Salt Reduction

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.

Bacteria Removal

Reducing the levels of bacteria to log 7
