Suncombe has launched its EDS+ BioWaste Treatment System for biologically hazardous waste decontamination and growth media sterilization.
The systems, certified to ASME and ISO/EN standards, are now suitable for local standardization and offer dual controls in the local language and English.
Following five years of successful internal and external testing Suncombe’s newest EDS+ system has been considerably enhanced to include a number of major technical advances, including thermal energy regeneration, dual redundancy, anti-foam control, pH neutralisation, 100 per cent positive release for treated waste and electronic records generation, the company says.
The EDS+ is designed for waste levels from BSL1 to BSL4 and is typically used in the biopharma sector, laboratories and research institutes. Recent commissions include large state-of-the-art BSL4 effluent treatment facilities for research institutes, as well as Biopharma R&D and production facilities. The EDS+ proved to be a perfect solution for all of these requirements.
The pre-designed system incorporates one or two vessels that are used for both collection and treatment and provide dual redundancy in the event of downtime. With capacities varied to suit a wide range of waste volume, the systems are supplied with controls and interlocking functionality to ensure containment is constantly maintained and there is always a positive release prior to discharge of treated waste.
The containment envelope and requirements are assessed for each project individually to provide a robust, reliable method of collection and storage of liquid waste streams, up to 20,000 liters per day.
Primarily used for thermal inactivation, the EDS+ also offers a back-up or alternative chemical and thermo chemical facility. Features of the system include: thermal regeneration of up to 75 percent using a two tank system; pH Neutralisation; controlled addition of anti-foam; self CIP; positive release of treated waste can be manual or automatic; and validatable electronic records provided for all treatment parameters.
