Will you be RO ready by 2021?

With the release of the AS/NZS 4187 in 2014, Australian day surgeries and hospitals will be required to comply with a particular water quality for use in disinfection by December 2021.
In recent months Mediquip has received a number of enquiries on Reverse Osmosis Systems and the best way to comply with this standard.
We’re here to break it down for you.
Technology is the only way to achieve the water quality specified in the standards (Table 7.2, AS/NZS 4187) and is also needed to maintain that quality through the storage process. This is where RO comes in.
An RO System provides sterile water, filtering out unwanted contaminants and bacteria.
However, not every RO system is equal.
Mediquip has researched with Australian Reverse Osmosis experts to develop RO Systems that can deliver a water supply in accordance with AS/NZS 4187. Featuring endotoxin filters, recirculation pumps and an ultraviolet disinfection system, our Multi-pure RO will complete your CSSD in time for the 2021 closing date.
Incorporating integrated pure water storage and pressurised water supply to a ring-main or direct connection to equipment, the system also has storage options of 45, 100, 200 and 500 litres. Requiring a low volume water supply and offering simple, low-maintenance operation, the new addition will have a small foot-print in any facility.
If you would like more information on Reverse Osmosis Systems and meeting the new standards, you can contact one of our Healthcare Specialists today on 1300 246 349.
