Greater quantities of water at low cost

Increasing hygiene requirements in the processing of medical products can involve the frequent sterilising of instruments. The consequent increased need for high quality demineralised water is provided amply by the MELAdem 47 and at low cost. The reversal of the physical principle of osmosis is an extremely environmentally-friendly type of water processing. MELAdem 47 produces around 3-5 litres of feed water per hour, so that several MELAG steam sterilisers can be supplied at the same time.

  • Water filter system
  • Always fresh aqua dem which protects your instruments and your autoclave
  • Automatic monitoring of the water quality when connected to a MELAG Vacuklav® or Euroklav® 
  • Creates 3 litres of water per hour
  • 5 litre storage tank
  • Counter fitted tap

Replacement of the Fine filter (pre-filter)Image

  • A new fine filter cartridge should be inserted every 12 months, or more often if high levels of impurity have led to loss of pressure.
  • Turn off the mains water supply and the stop tap of the storage container.
  • Allow some water to flow out of the supply tap to equalise the pressure in the system.
  • Unscrew the filter housing (a) with the filter wrench from the head (b). Lead the wrench from bottom to top through the filter housing and screw the filter wrench to the left.

The filter housing is full to the brim with water. Pour off the water.

  • Remove the filter cartridge (1) and wash out the housing with normal water.
  • Take the sealing ring out of the housing (a), clean, give a slight coating of silicone and replace.
  • Place the new filter cartridge in the housing.
  • Screw down the housing slightly by using the filter wrench.
  • Turn on the mains water supply and open the stop tap on the storage container.
  • Check that all parts sit tightly, with no leaks.

Replacement of the activated carbon filterImage

A new activated carbon filter should also be inserted every 12 months, or more often if necessary.

  • Turn off the mains water supply and the stop tap of the storage container.
  • Allow some water to flow out of the supply tap to equalise the pressure in the system.
  • Unscrew the filter housing (a) with the filter wrench from the head (b). Lead the wrench from bottom to top through the housing and screw the filter wrench to the left.

The housing is full to the brim with water. Pour off the water.

  • Remove the activated carbon filter (1) and wash out the housing with normal water.
  • Take the sealing ring out of the housing (a), clean, give a slight coating of silicone and replace.
  • Place the new activated carbon filter in the housing (with the arrow pointing upwards!).
  • Screw down the housing slightly by using the filter wrench.
  • Turn on the mains water supply and open the stop tap on the storage container.
  • Check that all parts sit tightly, with no leaks.

It is important to exchange the filter catridges regularly in order to avoid damage to the reverse-osmosis module which would shorten its operational life.

Replacement of the ion exchange resin

Image

When the mixed-bed resin is exhausted (inadequate water quality of the permeate) then it must be exchanged:

  • Turn off the mains water supply and if necessary empty the storage container.
  • Unscrew the filter housing (a) with the filter wrench from the head (b). Lead the wrench from bottom to top through the housing and screw the filter wrench to the left.

The housing is full to the brim with water. Pour off the water.

  • Take out the mixed-bed resin (1) and replace it by a new mixed-bed resin.
  • When placing it, please observe that the flat packing on the mixed-bed resin (1) is upwards (arrow pointing upwards).
  • Take the sealing ring out of the housing (a), clean, grease slightly and replace.
  • Re-insert the mixed-bed resin into the housing (a).
  • Tighten the housing slightly by using the filter wrench.
  • Turn on the water supply and open the stop-tap of the storage container.
  • Check that all parts sit tightly, with no leaks.
