Ultrasonic Cleaner from Tovatech Plays Key Role in World Health Organization's Guidelines for Infection Control

Using an ultrasonic cleaner is faster, safer and more thorough than scrubbing when cleaning medical instruments used in healthcare facilities. Improved cleaning results, shorter cleaning time and lower costs through reuse of instruments are added benefits of ultrasonic cleaning.

South Orange, NJ (PRWEB) November 10, 2009 -- Infection control through proper cleaning of medical instruments is a critical step in preventing infections from passing between patients being treated for accidents or diseases. An Elma ultrasonic cleaner from Tovatech LCC, based here, can save healthcare facilities time when employed first in a three-step World Health Organization guideline for infection control: cleaning, disinfecting and sterilizing. As an added benefit properly cleaned instruments can be reused to lower costs for these facilities.

When a used medical instrument is not thoroughly cleaned, residual debris may be left behind. This debris can render the subsequent disinfection and the sterilization steps ineffective. In contrast to manual scrubbing, cleaning surgical instruments in an Elma ultrasonic cleaner efficiently removes contamination from joints and crevices and dramatically reduces the potential for puncture wounds from sharp tools.

Compact, versatile 1.8 gallon capacity Elmasonic models S70 and E70H are examples of bench top ultrasonic cleaner units ideally sized for medical instruments. Tank internal dimensions are approximately (LxWxD) 20 x 5.4 x 4 inches. A high performance 37 kHz transducer system creates the cavitation action to penetrate minute crevices and quickly remove contaminants prior to the disinfecting and sterilizing operations.

Features common to Elmasonic S laboratory ultrasonic cleaners include auto degas and sweep functions. Fresh cleaning fluid must be degassed prior to ultrasonic cleaning. The auto degas function completes the essential degassing process in 10 minutes. In sweep mode frequencies are shifted continuously to ensure that cavitation occurs uniformly throughout the tank.

Other features include an easy-to-use operating panel, electronic time and temperature control with LED displays, an auto start to turn the system on when the bath reaches the set temperature, and an automatic 12-hour safety shut-off if programmed to run continuously.

The lower-cost Elmasonic E delivers top ultrasonic cleaning results with sweep technology and high ultrasonic cleaning power using the latest processor-controlled generator technology.

Elma ultrasonic cleaners from Tovatech are available in a wide range of sizes and capacities from tabletop 0.2 gallon to industry sized 24 gallon tanks and are used across a broad spectrum of cleaning and degreasing applications. All models are available with heated ultrasonic tanks that operate from room temperature to 80°C (176°F), all with digital timers. Accessories include baskets with plastic coated handles, clamps for Erlenmeyer flasks, acid-proof tanks, and holders for 1 liter HPLC solvent flasks for solvent degassing. The noise-reducing cover can be flipped over and used as a tray and drip-off basin. Collected cleaning liquid can be emptied back into the tank.
