ATS University: Healthcare Design with a focus on Texas

Welcome to another ATS University Webinar series!

ATS University is proud to offer our Healthcare Design Webinar, in partnership with Watts and Franke. ATS University is our resource library that is chock-full of learning resources for our community so that we can keep everyone connected and learning about the latest updates from the market’s top manufacturers.

This presentation focuses on new pressures facing the healthcare industry in the US and specifically Texas. We will be looking at a few products that help with sanitization, and are key in healthcare settings such as the hospital to disinfect, reduce the spread of germs, legionella, and other hazardous microorganisms; as well as improvements in hygienic design, water quality, connectivity, and safety.

Topics and Products Covered in the Webinar:

Every year an estimated 648,000 people in the U.S. develop infections during a hospital stay, and about 75,000 die, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Similarly, thousands of healthcare workers are forced out of work due to health issues or injuries sustained in the workplace each year. Right now with the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, the impact of the spread of germs and the dire need for disinfectants and eliminating germs in healthcare settings is crystal clear.  To combat the spread of germs and eliminate germs and bacteria, here are a few product recommendations to incorporate into your healthcare design:

1.Franke Medi-Flo

The Medi-Flo is the industry’s first sink with a Laminar Ozone Chamber. Infusing water with ozone is twice as effective as bleach and kills bacteria 3000 times faster. The 9-inch sink inhibits the formation of biofilms on the sink and waste trap, improves the results of handwashing, and reduces splashing. An infra-red sensor ensures hands are in the optimum place for washing and splash containment and the sensor also triggers a 3-second post-wash to remove any soap residue and keep the sink and trap clean.

Franke now incorporates Medi-Flo’s germ-busting technology into a retrofit ozone faucet. This is ideal in situations where sinks cannot be replaced. The Ozo-Flow water kills germs on demand:  keeping germs at bay, and healthcare facilities safe.

2.Powers Intellistation– digital mixing system

With the IntelliStation, facilities managers can remotely monitor and control water temperatures on an easy to read full-color LED touchscreen interface. It is also field-configurable so it does not require the use of a laptop or special software, and can be integrated into a building automation system (BAS). The IntelliStation can digitally regulate temperature to ASSE 1017 within +/-2°F, even during low and zero demand periods and with its precision, reducing energy costs.

Powers Intellistation Jr: The IntelliStation Jr. is the smart mixing valve that keeps you covered and connected. It is password protected and configurable on-site, easy to install, and does not require factory pre-programming, a laptop, or special software to download for commissioning or when making adjustments to the valve.

3.Watts UV SmartStream® 

  • The Watts UV SmartStream® has flow rates up to 50 GPM
  • Audible and visual alarms indicate when the needs replacement
  • Great solution when discussing disease control

4.Blücher Drain

The Blücher Drain features stainless steel drainage that helps mitigate bacterial and virus propagation in drainage systems and reduces the risk of HAI’s.

5. Pressalit Care

Pressalit offers a wide variety of products to help, including their changing table to help in the care of patients and to reduce falls.
