UVC Water Trap Disinfector

– Preventing spread of multi-resistant bacteria

In health care facilities, the effort to prevent hospital-acquired infections is always evolving.  But there is one spot that is almost always overlooked: the water trap.

The problem is well known in the literature – see below under links. 

So far there has not been any solution to eliminate the appearance of CFUs in the water trap of sinks. This have resulted in various outbreaks of Hospital Acquired Infections all over the world.

The Dolphin Care UVC Water Trap Disinfector uses UVC-light in combination with chrome polishing of the pipe and the result is significant reduction of the CFU – 3-6 log10* –  in the wastewater.
