SUEZ Water Purification Systems Ltd Supplies Remotely Monitored Water Purification System to South African Hospital
SUEZ Water Purification Systems Ltd has supplied and commissioned an innovative, high quality water purification system featuring remote monitoring functionality at the Rondebosch Medical Centre in Cape Town, South Africa.
The SUEZ Elite MediQA 1000 is a double pass reverse osmosis water purification system, capable of providing up to 1,000 litres of purified water per hour to a quality that meets the ISO 13959:2014 standard. The system is extremely easy to use and features advanced data logging, as well as semi automated chemical cleaning and disinfection of the reverse osmosis membranes, to minimise the potential for bacterial growth on membrane surfaces.
At Rondebosch Medical Centre, the MediQA system feeds a new dialysis clinic currently housing 11 beds with ultrapure water. It features advanced technology for the remote monitoring of live data, which will enable healthcare professionals responsible for managing the system to ensure water quality is always of the highest standard, and provide full traceability, to protect the health of patients. The unit also has the capability of continuing to deliver pure water for dialysis even if one of the dual stream fails, by activation of a bypass facility, thus ensuring continued supply and patient safety.
“The Elite MediQA 1000 is the perfect match for our needs,” explains Kevin Abrahams, Clinical Technologist at Rondebosch Dialysis Centre. “While it delivers the essential, high purity water at volumes that we need for renal applications, it also provides us with an effective method of remotely monitoring the purity of water and performance of the RO. This will save our operations and maintenance teams considerable time each year and also brings us peace of mind because we know the water is of the highest purity for our renal patients.”
Commenting on the supply of the Elite MediQA 1000, Phill Dempsey, Export Manager at SUEZ Water Purification Systems, explained, “Careful consideration of a number of performance influencing factors is vital when specifying water purification systems for use in dialysis facilities. Water purity, consistency and system reliability are all critical, as are low operating and maintenance costs. The Elite MediQA 1000 meets all of these criteria, making it an ideal solution for Rondebosch Medical Centre and its patients.”
