Reducing spread of infection

Collecting waste and laundry with the Envac system reduces physical contact between people and dirty material to a minimum. The waste and laundry are transported through a closed pipe network instead of on carts in corridors and elevators, which creates a safer environment for transportation of patients, staff, and visitors. The closed system and touch-free waste inlets also minimize the spread of infections, droplet transmission, and accidents.

One system – Two networks

The Envac set-up for hospitals is slightly different to our common system. To tackle the challenges of clean and safe removal of both laundry and waste, the two are transported through separate pipe networks while still remaining in the same system. Laundry and waste have their own respective inlets that can be fitted with touch-free technology to minimize contact and cross contamination. Our system removes the need to transport laundry in trolleys or carts, minimizing the spread of germs and bacteria as well as reducing operational cost.

Cost-efficient

Reducing manual handling of laundry and waste is not only beneficial from a health perspective, but it is also cost-efficient. The automatic transportation of our pneumatic waste collection reduces the need for a large workforce of orderlies and hospital attendants to transport and sort laundry and waste. Less waste transportation with carts in corridors and culverts also reduces the wear and tear of the hospital building which means less maintenance cost.

Our system is integrated in the walls, floors, and culverts of the hospital building and removes the need to transport laundry in trolleys or carts, minimizing the spread of germs and bacteria as well as reducing operational cost.

Ecology and hospital image

For any hospital, patient and staff welfare is crucial, but hospitals also can play their part in a more sustainable future. The Envac system can be designed to handle several waste fractions within the hospital.

Our system also removes the unsightly manual transport of waste and laundry throughout the hospital, providing patients and visitors with a better experience of the hospital. An eco-friendly hospital environment with state of the art technology attracts both top health care professionals and patients.

Patient safety

With an Envac system waste and soiled linen are transported in a closed pipe net hidden in the fabric of the building, not on carts in corridors and lifts.

Working environment

When waste and soiled linen is collected with an Envac system the physical contact between human and dirty material is kept to a minimum.
The risk of waste related strain injuries, cut wounds, accidents and infection is close to eliminated.
Elevators can be used for transportation of patients, staff and visitors – not for carts with waste bags.

Low opex

Less waste transportation vehicles and carts in corridors and culverts means less wear and tear of the building = reduced maintenance costs.
Pneumatic transportation of waste and soiled linen in sealed pipes means less need for cleansing and transportation staff = reduced manpower costs.

Hospital image

An eco-friendly hospital environment with state of the art technology attracts both top health care professionals and patients.

Efficiency and Logistics

High performance, fast collection, sealed transportation from ward to waste collection terminal, 24/7 availability and adaptable to any volumes. The closed system and touch-free waste inlets minimize the spread of infections, droplet transmission and accidents.
