With increasing patient numbers and a greater demand for endoscopy services, Horton General Hospital, run by the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, undertook a 12-month building project to construct a state-of-the-art, specialised endoscopy unit. Envirogen provided the latest reverse osmosis technology to ensure a reliable flow of purified water for three Automated Endoscopy Reprocessors (AER).
Neville Fowler, Technical Manager at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital in London explains how a scoping project undertaken by the Trust, identified the need for a back up Sterile Services Department, to provide cover/security for potential breakdowns within the hospitals current facilities.
Andy Jones, Hospital Manager at Fairfield Independent Hospital, St Helens, explained how the hospital needed to increase its endoscope decontamination capacity to satisfy increased patient numbers. Plus improve equipment reliability and future proof the decontamination facility. This led to the installation of two pass through automated endoscope reprocessors (AER’s) along with a duplex thermally sanitised water treatment system that supplies RO water to all stages of the cleaning process.
Growing patient numbers and rising demand for reliable endoscopy services meant that the hospital needed to review its key reprocessing equipment. This resulted in a recommendation that their existing chemical clean reverse osmosis units be replaced with state of the art thermal sanitisation reverse osmosis (RO) systems.
Dwight Bali, Head of Engineering at J Wray & Nephew UK, the distributor of the Appleton range of rums, knew the Jamaican based winery needed to improve efficiencies and productivity in its filtration process and reduce its waste disposal costs. Due to Puresep’s knowledge in the food and beverage industry, they were commissioned for the project.
Analysis of the current plant, and examination of the further plans to double brewing capability, meant that our engineers could design the solution to fit the existing machinery with the expansion strategy in mind. With a toolkit of some of the best filtration systems in the world, we don’t deliver a one size fits all approach.
