Our Technology

The ECODAS sterilizers are designed to neutralize the infectious waste, reduce its volume, and render its components unrecognizable and safe to dispose of as harmless municipal waste. All is done in one processing step and in a fully enclosed automated system. The ECODAS technology is a patented process that is based on advanced GREEN autoclaving (non-burning) method that uses clean heated pressurized steam with no added chemicals to treat and dispose of the medical waste.

Medical Waste Sterilization
The treatment process combines internal shredding, direct heated steam (138°C/280°F), and high pressure (3.8 bars/55 psi) to achieve complete sterilization of infectious materials.

 

 

Treatment Cycle Simulation
The sterilizer is designed to process all type of medical waste including sharps and pathological waste. The end product is a converted unrecognizable neutralized municipal waste.

 

 

Innovative Technology – Advanced Sterilizers  / Hybrid Autoclaving Systems
Application & Objective

Regulated Medical WasteThe system is required to treat and neutralize any waste that is listed as Regulated Medical Waste (RMW), also known as Infectious Waste, Biomedical Waste, Bio-Hazardous waste, or “Red Bags”. 

The ECODAS STERILIZER known as an Advanced/Hybrid Autoclaving System is designed to sterilize biomedical waste, reduce its volume by 80%, and render its components unrecognizable and safe ordinary solid municipal waste – All is done in one (1) fully enclosed automated cycle/step. The treatment process combines internal shredding, direct heated steam, and high pressure to achieve a microbial inactivation of 6-8log10.

Guided User Interface & Computerized Operations

TechnologyThe whole operations and sequences of the ECODAS Sterilizer are entirely computerized and regularly controlled by an advanced programmable microprocessor offering reliable, simple, consistent, and safe treatment process.  This Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) monitors, regulates, and maintains the operating parameters during the entire length of each automated treatment cycle.

The SYSTEM is fully automated and comprehensive allowing very minimum handling of medical waste, with NO contact with the infectious waste during the treatment cycle.

More
The ECODAS SYSTEM also features forward-thinking interactive design and diagnostic features via a Graphical User Interface (GUI) enabling the operator to interface effortlessly with the unit and follow commands to operate and maintain the system as well as to troubleshoot errors and repair anomalies. This highly-developed touch screen system also support cycle’s progress display, support, configuration, setup, maintenance, troubleshooting, alarms alert, and step-by-step diagnostics assistance.

The ECODAS SYSTEM guarantees secure, safe, and reliable process by monitoring, recording, and safeguarding all operating characteristics and treatment data through password-protected protocols.

Advantages over Traditional Autoclaves

AutoclaveUnlike traditional autoclaving technologies where the steam does not penetrate thoroughly into the core of the waste bulk, ECODAS SYSTEM shreds the waste prior to the sterilization cycle directly exposing the inner waste contents to the saturated steam achieving a microbial inactivation of 8log10.  The closed operating sequence of internal pre-shredding followed by a sterilization phase is critical to guarantee steam penetration and to ensure delivering an effective treatment process and true neutralization of all type of infectious waste stream.

More

The treatment process is completed in one step form load to unload circumventing any intermediate handling of the waste either manually or automatically through conveyance and other complementary equipment.

The ECODAS SYSTEM does not require any consumables (e.g. autoclavable bags, liners, chemical/disinfection products, packages, printing labels) or any supplementary equipment (e.g. autoclavable carts, conveyors, external shredder).

Safety and Compliance
Enhanced Safety Features

Safety and ComplianceThe ECODAS Sterilizer is equipped with advanced safety features and enhanced capabilities, such as the the following:

  • The ECODAS SYSTEM is a stand-alone machine that is equipped with unconventional interlock mechanisms and an exceptional shredder anti-jamming and waste sticking prevention features.
  • The system is also equipped with a fail-safe built in technology with alarm’s indications for an instant and guided operator’s intervention.
  • The ECODAS SYSTEM automated and comprehensive treatment operation reduces operator’s handling time to a minimum and eliminates employee’s direct contact with the infectious waste during the entire treatment cycle.
More
  • The ECODAS SYSTEM is outfitted with a secured control process that prevents operator from changing, bypassing, or overriding any treatment’s mechanisms, criteria, or parameters.
  • For the highest quality and safety assurance, ECODAS pressurized vessel and its integrated shredder are entirely made of stainless steel.
  • The machine is completely sealed; No air, particulate, or liquid can be released/leaked during the treatment cycle

Compliance and Record Keeping

Medical Waste Record Keeping The ECODAS SYSTEM guarantees an improved RMW compliance and quality assurance due to the following advanced capabilities:

  • Built-in security features ensuring that all treatment conditions are achieved prior unlocking and opening the system’s unloading door to release the treated waste.
  • Temperature, pressure, and exposure time are continuously monitored and maintained throughout the computerized process.
  • Secure database information is safeguarded through password protected programs in order to confirm the integrity, the validity, and the protection of the operating process/parameters.
More
  • For each treatment cycle, the operating results of essential data parameters are automatically printed, digitally stored, and securely protected for internal or external review.
  • Recorded data include cycle number, treatment step, cycle ok status, and treatment parameters, such as exposure time, chamber temperature, steam pressure, and waste temperature.
