Franke Medi-flo:

Front Sink

The Medi-flo is the industry’s first sink with a Laminar Ozone Chamber. Infusing water with Ozone is twice as effective as bleach and kills bacteria 3000 times faster. The 9-inch sink inhibits the formation of bio-films on the sink and waste trap, improves the results of hand washing and reduces splashing. An infra-red sensor ensures hands are in the optimum place for washing and splash containment and the sensor also triggers a 3-second post wash to remove any soap residue and keep the sink and trap clean.

The Watts SmartStream UV

Watts Uvsmart Stream

The Watts SmartStream UV uses the power of Ultraviolet light to inactivate 99.9999% of harmful organisms like cysts, bacteria, and viruses that can lead to serious illness. The UV light disrupts their genetic DNA material, quickly inactivating microorganisms by destroying their ability to multiply and infect.

The SmartStream UV disinfection must be used as a last step in the water treatment system, just before dispensing. UV can also be used as a pre-disinfection for reverse osmosis systems to protect the membranes from microbial contamination.

If that wasn’t innovative enough, this system also helps improve the performance of equipment and features a sleek and compact design for your healthcare settings and laboratories.
