Technology of the Future... Today
Current Standard Design
The current old style dialysis chases were designed and built with casework that houses the solution delivery fluid lines, fittings, additional valves along with the recessed water boxes, and the drain manifold. This stick built system uses standard particle board or plywood covered with plastic laminate or painted. Some clinics use either a ground up or suspended up off the floor design for their casework.
This old style design has been accepted as the standard design. It is just a matter of time when problems with moisture, deterioration, mold and mildew sets in. Add to this the horizontal indirect waste lines create an environment were bio-film build up in the lines cause bacterial growth and unpleasant odors as well as attract pests like drain flies, gnats, vermin and other insects. All of these conditions create an unpleasant and unsafe atmosphere for patients and staff.
Fresh New Approach
This is a fresh new approach to provide a solution delivery system in dialysis clinics. The modular design allows for surface-mounting of the devices.
When you no longer need the casework to house the old style of system you recapture the space formerly used with the old style design.
This all allows the recaptured space to be used in a much more spacious and productive way. A minimalist approach adds value to your space design reducing the square footage required for the patient treatment floor.
T Box modular design works great on any kind of project, whether it be new construction or renovation projects simplifying the process and adding space to the dialysis station footprint.
Minimize Space Requirements
Why do we need to change the design?
What are the issues? – Standard dialysis applications have millwork-wood-based products that are susceptible to water absorption and damage with surface and substrates that are prone to bacteria, mold, mildew, vermin, and insects. The cabinet itself creates a dark, humid environment that promotes these unwanted conditions.
In previous years, the casework was constructed from the floor up, causing concealed interior for all dialysis loops, drains, and electrical elements to pass through. The next generation raised the casework up off of the floor, exposing the underside open to the floor so the drips and debris would be able to be seen as it falls to the floor, revealing leaks that used to be hidden from sight.
Interior of casework tends to be high humidity and susceptible to insects, bacteria, mold, mildew, and vermin.
Use of millwork allows for unwanted debris and trash collection on a horizontal surface on top of casework that needs to be sanitized and free from clutter.
New Design & Performance
• T Box system finish surfaces are easy to clean and to keep sanitary. Removal of casework provides a remedy for unwanted debris and trash collection, removing another flat top surface on top of casework that needs to be sanitized and free from clutter.
• The T Box valve manifold is built with stainless steel valves with integral backflow prevention on each fluid valve. Fewer fittings mean fewer opportunities for bacterial growth.
• T Box valve enclosure shroud and railing are made of high impact plastics and anti-microbial easy to clean and sanitize cleanable surfaces.
• The horizontal bumper rail houses the fluid solution lines and keeps them organized in a nice clip and snap-in type design. The design includes the ability to insulate the RO line for hot water disinfection.
• Fittings at valve box options allow for hot water or chemical disinfection for solution lines.
• Modular design allows multiple configuration options.
• Isolated drain box provides a built-in air gap at drain connection to the machine.
• T Box isolated drain box is removable and re-installable.
• T Box isolated drain box has easy to clean surfaces and is separated and not connected to the T Box valve manifold.
• Available in three colors to match all color schemes. Beige, Tan, Grey.
• Many dialysis companies use the open isolated drain manifolds, which are an open Petri dish-like environment for bio growth, vermin, insects, and noxious unhealthy odors. These drain manifolds create a very unhealthy environment that promotes drain flies, insects and other bio hazards and bacterial growth by design.
