Sluicing is an integral part of the early stages of a process designed to combat the threat of microbiological contaminations in the Healthcare environment. The only washer extractor worldwide with internationally designed pre-set sluice programs, 8mm drum perforations, a large 3 inch drain valve and operating on single phase 220 volt power.
The Laundry process is an important part of combatting Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI’s). Bacteria coming from soiled linen through air, hands or human contact during improper handling or processing of laundry is an important cause of infection.
Our unique 8mm drum perforations and 3 inch drain valve ensure bodily waste is removed in the sluicing process and prior to either the transportation of linen where hospitals outsource their laundry; or prior to linen being moved to washer extractors (normally located in a separate room on in the ‘dirty’ side of the laundry) where linen is processed through a full wash process incorporating thermal or chemical disinfection.
