UVC Water Trap Disinfector
Effective reduction of bacteria from wastewater in wash basins
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.
Using Dolphin Care Water Trap Disinfector may prevent spread of bacteria causing Hospital Acquired Infections.

- Department for burned patients
- Department for neonates
- Intensive care units – patients on ventilators
- Department for neutropenic patients

Contamination of water traps – a “well documented” challenge
Contaminated handwashing sinks as the source of a clonal outbreak of KPC-2-producing Klebsiella oxytoca on a hematology ward
Sources of sporadic Pseudomonas aeruginosa colonizations/infections in surgical ICUs: Association with contaminated sink trap
Wastewater drainage system as an occult reservoir in a protracted clonal outbreak due to metallo-b-lactamase-producing Klebsiella oxytoca
The UVC Water Trap Disinfector comes with a three-year-guarantee from delivery date.
To secure the high level of efficacy the UVC-lamps must be changed once a year.
To keep the documented efficacy of the UVC Water Trap it is essential that the components are replaced with original parts.
Sign a service agreement
With a service agreement we will automatically change the UVC lamps once a year to secure that the UVC Water Trap Disinfector keeps performing with high efficacy.
