Introduction to BioWasteSink ™ Effluent Treatment Systems
The BioWasteSink ™ effluent treatment system are permanently installed components of laboratory furniture and placed against the service spine or a wall. They are pre-designed systems for use in biocontainment labs, to treat low volumes of effluent using an innovative batch process allowing positive release of all of your waste. The system is designed to fit into new or retrofit into existing laboratories.
Designed to operate from a single 13 amp 230 Vac plug (European versions), the BioWasteSink™, uses SteriHeat™ established licensed electrical heating technology to treat the effluent in batches at variable f0 lethality settings.
Using robust, proven design principles, the Effluent Decontamination Systems deal with CL BioSafety Waste Level 1 to 3 and take into account two main areas of concern. Firstly the systems effectively sterilise or inactivate any harmful pathogens in the waste stream and secondly total containment must be assured at all times. The unit can be fully chemical decontaminated for maintenance.
