Neutralising infectious waste as close as possible to the care units helps to reduce the risk of spreading any viruses and offers maximum safety for patients, medical staff and indeed anyone affected by the flow of potentially infectious clinical waste.
STERIGERMS technology has been developed on the basis of stringent specifications tailored to the goals, practical uses and constraints of the French Navy. The life expectancy goals combined with the constraints of an aggressive environment (saline air//humidity) and specific uses made of the equipment have forced STERIGERMS staff to design and build a highly efficient waste treatment system.
The STERIGERMS technology consists of isolating the clinical waste in a specially designed Steribag, so that it can be heated to a temperature of 150° C and then compressed in order to reduce the volume of the waste by up to 80%. This treatment produces an inert disk, which has been turned into household waste, containing totally neutralised waste such as containers with needles, syringes, scalpels, sharp blades, dressings, protective clothing, any glass which has contained blood or secretions, catheters, tubes etc., which then can be disposed of along with any household waste,
Sterigerms machines are compact and mobile, do not require any water supply, can be installed and uninstalled quickly anywhere, and can easily be moved around within a facility, offering maximum safety for both the community and the environment.
In addition to all this, the Sterigerms machines development plan took our customers’ lack of available resources into account, and so maintenance operations are kept to the bare minimum.
The STERIGERMS system has unique properties which make it an excellent solution for specific uses in restrictive environments.
THE BENEFITS OF THE STERIGERMS MACHINE
The STERIGERMS machine’s twenty cycles / day allows you to dispose of stocks of clinical waste products
STERIGERMS technology can reduce the volume of your biomedical waste by up to 80%, transforming your waste into a compact, inert disk.
There is no need to treat yellow boxes used for sharps and other infectious waste differently – you can place them into the STERIGERMS machine together with masks, scrubs, swabs and bandages and other waste.
No water needed – Sterigerms conserves natural resources.
Low energy consumption – 1 kW / cycle for a 12-liters machine and 3 kW / cycle for a 60-liters machine, which not only ensures low operating costs.
Reduced environmental impact.
The STERIGERMS machine’s mobility and ergonomics mean that it can very easily be moved around to be kept as close as possible to the site where the biomedical waste is produced and to facilitate cleaning operations.
Sterigerms machines are compact and fitted with wheels which make them easier to move around.
Fast installation: thanks to Sterigerms true ‘plug & play’ technology and trainings available you will spend minimum time on the installation.
Devices can be installed in any location with 220-240 V electrical connection.
The control console guides the user through the whole treatment process highlighting all the steps and safety measures.
A complete report on the use of the machine ensures traceability.
Sterigerms does not use a shredder or autoclave, so with proper, low-cost and time-saving maintenance, your equipment will last you for years.
