The endoscopy department was struggling to cope with daily demands, as a result of old, unreliable automated endoscope reprocessors (AERs), which needed to be replaced.
The most suitable RO system to meet the client’s needs was the OSIRIS, offering a standard throughput of 12,000 l/hr and capable of up to 2,400 l/hr during peak times. Veolia designed the RO system – including a bespoke 800 litre permeate tank – to fit within a pre-designated plant room area, requiring an L-shaped configuration.
The system went live nine months after beginning installation of the AERs and RO. The new set-up has enabled the department to increase its capacity, supporting around 900 procedures a year with every patient suite in use.
