The quality of the water used in the Automatic Endoscope Reprocessors (AER) is paramount for the cleanliness of endoscopes. To avoid cross-contamination, all elements down to the size of bacteria are typically removed. The water used for the final rinse cycle of the endoscopes is important for washing off the disinfectant chemicals and to not introduce any bacteria.
The water used to feed the AER is commonly used for this application as the final cartridge is rated to 0.2-micron absolute which retains bacteria. Some AER manufacturers add their own 0.2-micron filter capsules or cartridges to ensure bacteria free water is used as the final rinse water.
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.
