The critical field of patient care requires ultra clean, purified, medical air delivered to operating theatres and hospital beds with absolute reliability. A hospitals medical air supply is a vital life support service, maintaining respiration of the critically ill during mechanical ventilation. As such, within Europe, ‘medicinal air’ is classified as a drug, and the concentration of any impurities therein must be carefully controlled to ensure compliance with the relevant European Pharmacopoeia monograph.
mAIR Medical Air Systems
BeaconMedæs mAIR systems have been carefully designed to surpass the requirements of the most comprehensive regulatory requirements.
mAIR systems have a unique multi-stage purification system that converts a compressed air source into internationally certified breathing air. The dMED air purification system has been independently certified by SGS Belgium NV (Société Générale de Surveillance) to provide medicinal air complying with the European Pharmacopeia monograph.
A proper managed compressed air network will save energy, reduce maintenance, decrease downtime, increase reliability and improve product quality. The ES medical central controller is the most efficient way to monitor and control multiple compressors and air purifiers simultaneously.
