For large hospitals, there are significant long-term labor costs associated with the collection, transport and removal of soiled linen, trash and recyclables. Traditionally these tasks have been extremely labor-intensive and inefficient, exposing employees to contaminants and potential injury. Today’s forward-thinking hospitals are improving this process by implementing automated hospital waste management solutions.
CleanStream is an automated linen and waste removal system that safely contains and rapidly transports solid waste through a totally sealed pipe network to a central collection area within seconds. Material can be transported vertically and horizontally to more than a mile away at 25 meters per second—that’s 37 times faster than manual transport!
When evaluating which automated system is right for your facility, consider the following advantages of the CleanStream system:
Independent Load Stations – With CleanStream, independent load stations ensure maximum system availability. With other automated waste removal systems, an entire riser goes down when one load station experiences an issue.
Expansive Load Chutes – Avoid waiting and build-up of linen and trash bags with high-throughput load chutes.
Automatic Sterilization – Load stations can automatically sterilize every night, minimizing the risk of cross-contamination.
Minimum Upkeep Requirements – While other systems often require extensive maintenance, CleanStream delivers unmatched uptime with minimal service.
