ULTIMATE - Decontamination Systems

Designed by experts in biological risks, thermal processes and fluid mechanics, the ULTIMATE is a steam-operated continuous decontamination skid specially thought up to meet all parameters required for a safe disposal of effluents for a very low capital investment.

In addition to a guaranteed decontamination, it also offers the benefits of a very compact layout that makes its placement in very tight spaces very easy.

Design Features:

  • Nominal flow rate: 1,000 liters per hour
  • Decontamination parameters: 135°C for 60 seconds
  • Lethality rate: F0=25
  • Select agents: BSL-1 and BSL-2 in non contained areas, BSL-3 in contained rooms

Skid Description

  • Starting and preparation tank for CIP
  • CIP drums for chemical products storage
  • Strainer to prevent solids bigger than 1mm from entering the decontamination loop
  • Pumping systems (for CIP and operating cycles)

Treatment section including:

  • Recovery section for preheating of the biowaste to 115°C and cooling down below 60°C after treatment without energy inputs
  • Steam-operated heating section to reach the decontamination temperature
  • All welded holding section to maintain the product at 135°C for 60 seconds to guarantee the lethality rate

The system is fully instrumented (temperature probe, flow meter, pressure and level transmitters, valves) for a fully automatic operation of the system from starting up to release of decontaminated biowaste to the drain.
