Kent Kidney Centre, part of the East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust, provides dialysis services for East and West Kent and is centred at Kent and Canterbury Hospital. The Unit has 30 out patient dialysis stations in Thomas Beckett Ward which operate two shifts a day for six days a week.
The Client's Needs
The central renal dialysis water system at Kent and Canterbury Hospital consists of a twin-pass, heat sanitisable reverse osmosis unit and operates for 18 hours per day generating some 3,400 litres per hour of high purity water. The Trust has a sustainable development management plan to reduce water consumption by 25% by 2020. Using the RecoBLUE on line calculator developed by Veolia Water Technologies, the technicians concluded that it should be possible to recover at least 550 litres per hour of the reject water and recycle it straight back into the holding tank of the renal unit's RO plant.
