Medical Plumbing Services for Perth Health Care
One of, if not the most important feature of health care plumbing, is backflow prevention. Supply of clean water to medical equipment is essential when treating patients.
A recent project carried out by Jewelbic Plumbing & Gas was the medical plumbing services and installation carried out at the Midland Dialysis Centre. Dialysis machines require a water supply that must meet strict standards. Usual tap water can cause harm to dialysis patients.
Specialised medical plumbing services and backflow prevention are essential to protecting:
- Potable water supply
- Each dialysis machine from cross-contaminating one another
- Contamination of dialysis water
Plumbing for dialysis
The dialysis process can only occur through the use of an ultra-pure water system.
A reduced pressure backflow prevention device must be placed at the inlet to ensure the ultra-pure water is not contaminated. This ensures that the ultra-pure water system is isolated from the entire potable water system.
Furthermore, specialised tubing such as cross-linked PEX must be used for ultra-pure water systems. Not only does cross-linked polyethylene have a smooth inner surface, it can also withstand high temperatures for ultra-pure water systems that use hot water for disinfection.
Reverse osmosis in dialysis
To achieve a higher quality of ultra-pure water, reverse osmosis is used. Jewelbic Plumbing & Gas setup RO units that are then plumbed into each dialysis machine.
However, in the case of Midland Dialysis Centre, our expert team setup a series of reverse osmosis bollards. This means that dialysis machines can be connected to the inlets on the bollards, in order to receive ultra-pure water supply.
