Sustainable water system at Cossham Dialysis Unit

Client Needs

Cossham Hospital in Bristol first opened in 1907 funded under the will of Victorian colliery owner and local MP Handel Cossham for the 'treatment and relief of sick and injured persons of both sexes'.

The new renal dialysis unit require a water supply to the 24 beds and three additional points of use in the Renal Technicians’ station, a total of 1900 l/h

Our Solution

Veolia Water Technologies’s solution was to install a DWA Modula S-XL reverse osmosis unit with a DWA Nephro SAFE ultra-filtration unit, feeding a heat sanitisable ring main. The Modula S-XL has two reverse osmosis streams to provide duty/standby operation in a compact arrangement feeding the NephroSAFE unit which incorporates the heater required for an integrated heat sanitisation of the ultra filtration membrane, ring main dialysis hoses and the dialysis machine

The Result

  • Ultra pure water for renal dialysis
  • Compliance with ISO 13959 and Renal Association Guidelines
  • Wastewater recycling
