Poole, United Kingdom (PressExposure) January 08, 2013 -- DDC Dolphin, leading experts in dirty utility room equipment and services, today launched two new macerators, the Pulpmatic Ultima and Uno. This unique and patented range of hands-free macerators will help break the chain of Healthcare Associated Infections (HCAI). DDC Dolphin is offering hospitals the chance to try out this newly patented technology with a free three-month trial of both the Pulpmatic Uno and Pulpmatic Ultima machines.
The Pulpmatic range sets new standards in the maceration of bio-degradable pulp product bedpans, bottles, vomit bowls and other similar articles with unique patented hands-free operation which eliminates any potential patient-to-patient cross contamination.
The new advanced range of completely hands-free Pulpmatic macerators cover all hospital requirements with the Pulpmatic Uno - a small pulp macerator used for single items which is ideal for isolation, single bed wards and low usage areas; and the Pulpmatic Ultima - a larger macerator for multiple items. The Pulpmatic range features the first and only macerators offering totally hands-free operation by means of a foot-sensor to open the machines and an optical sensor to close and start them. The hands-free approach makes them more convenient and more hygienic to use than other macerators - a major step forward in the fight against HCAI's.
Both the new Pulpmatic Uno and the Pulpmatic Ultima feature dual antimicrobial action with the latest silver nanotechnology in their lid construction, as well as offering automatic disinfection of the internal maceration chambers. The Pulpmatic range has been designed to help break the chain of infection, but also with the environment in mind, using unique blade technology for quieter, quicker and more efficient maceration, as well as reduced water and electricity consumption.
Rob Elliott, Sales and Marketing Director from DDC Dolphin, said: "A major challenge for hospitals and care homes is the fight against healthcare associated infections such as MRSA and C-difficile. As a world-class organisation, DDC Dolphin's mission is to prevent the transmission of infection by breaking the cycle of infection and cross-contamination. We successfully achieve this through our technologically advanced design and engineering; our state-of-the-art equipment; our use of high-grade medical materials; our commitment to testing and quality control; and our comprehensive maintenance and training programmes."
He added: "Our team of design engineers are working with silver-based nanotechnology, microbe-safe surfaces to better control the risk of cross-infection in dirty utility rooms and our new range of Pulpmatic macerators incorporate newly patented technology."
