One system – but several pipe networks
The Envac set-up for hospitals is slightly different to our common system.
To tackle the challenges of clean and safe removal of laundry, waste, recyclables and now infectious waste, the four are transported through separate pipe networks while still remaining in the same system.
The inlets can be fitted with touchless technology that uses sensors for access control. The sensors recognize if it is waste, recyclables, laundry, or infectious waste, that is being disposed of.
Without any physical contact with buttons, handles, or panels to dispose of the waste, the spread of infections is minimized.
Our automated waste collection system removes the need to transport laundry in trolleys or carts outside the ward, minimizing the spread of germs and bacteria as well as reducing operational cost.
