Bench Top Steriliser and Patient Feed

Water used by patients for mouth rinsing should be bacteria free and bench top sterilisers need to be fed with pure water to operate.

The water must be free of impurities, as this can affect the cleaning of instruments, cause scale build-up on expensive equipment and prevent cross-contamination. This area is considered critical as it falls under the guidance given in HTM 01-05.

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.

Chlorine and Organics Removal

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

Deionisation

The use of a mixed-bed resin of anion and cation, attracts all salts and ions, removing them from the water.

Bacteria Removal

Reducing the levels of bacteria to log 7

TDS Monitoring

Devices that measure the conductivity of water between 2 probes provide a good indicator of the ions and salts content.
