The Anaesthetic Gas Scavenging System removes anesthetic gas mixtures in areas fitted with nitrous oxide terminal units like operating rooms. By virtue of its design, the active disposal system can produce high capture levels simply by connecting the terminal unit to the anesthetic breathing circuit via a receiver unit. This removal at the source eliminates the possible long term health hazards for the exposed medical staff.
Where planned preventative maintenance or a breakdown of a blower could interrupt the smooth running of the operating department, a duplex system is strongly recommended. In the event of a blower malfunction, the stand-by unit is automatically brought online, ensuring the AGS system continues to provide protection for medical staff, and that operations do not have to be delayed or cancelled.
Simplex systems are allowed. However, HTM02-01 states that wherever a single AGS pump is provided for a single operating suite, a spare pump for up to six units should be provided for immediate connection into the system in the event of failure.
Our AGS system is compatible with any AGS receiver unit (available separately). BeaconMedæs terminal units incorporate an adjustable orifice, which enables the flow rate to be adjusted in line with any standard including BS 6834 and EN ISO 7396-2 high-flow and low-flow systems.
