  • What is Evacle 80?
    Evacle 80 is an On-Site device for sterilization of hazardous biomedical waste. It is based on a shredder and chemical sterilization process, which convert medical infectious into regular municipal waste
  • How does the Evacle 80 sterilize infectious medical waste?
    The Evacle system utilizes chemical disinfection to sterilize infectious waste. The disinfectant solution used is a combination of Peracetic Acid and Hydrogen Peroxide, known as Evacetic. The sterilization process occurs in a liquid phase, ensuring that all shredded particles come into contact with the chemical, thereby exposing all bacteria to the disinfectant solution.
  • What happens to the waste after the sterilization process?
    After the sterilization process is completed, the solid shredded waste is discharged from the machine and is considered to be completely sterilized. It can then be treated as normal municipal waste. The liquids are separated from the solids and are directed to the sewage system.
  • How can I validate the sterilization efficiency?
    Evacle provides a quick validation kit that can be used by the operator. This option offers a convenient way to assess the sterilization process and ensure its effectiveness with 100% safety assurance.
  • What are the main advantages of chemical disinfection technology compared to heat treatment technology?
    The main advantage of chemical disinfection technology is the ability to validate that 100% of the contamination has been sterilized, thanks to the liquid phase process. This sets it apart from autoclaves or microwave systems, which cannot be fully validated. Other significant advantages include simplicity, small size, no requirement for steam, absence of bad odor, safety in use, ease of operation, and cost-effectiveness.
  • Can we recycle the waste after the sterilization process?
    Yes, it is possible to recycle the waste. However, the recycling process is not part of Evacle's mission and can be carried out by any recycling company.
  • What types of waste can be treated by Evacle 80?
    Evacle can treat a wide range of biomedical waste. For example, it can handle medical sharps such as needles and syringes, used bandages or dressings, plastic sharp containers, gloves, masks, dialysis filters, contaminated medical tools, as well as samples from tests like blood, urine, stool, and human tissues.
  • What should not be treated by Evacle 80?
    Evacle cannot treat pharmaceutical chemicals and drugs, cytotoxic substances, and radioactive waste. Additionally, hard and large metal tools, as well as titanium items, should be avoided as they can damage the shredder blades.
  • Can the Evacetic be disposed of in the sewage after the process ends?
    Yes, the Evacetic can be safely disposed of in the sewage system. It is considered to be environmentally friendly ("Green") because it disintegrates into water, oxygen, and acetic acid, completely dissolving within a short period of time.
  • What is the size of the Evacle 80 machine?
    The Evacle machine is relatively small in size. It has an overall length of approximately 2.7 meters and a width of 0.8 meters. The recommended room size for one machine is approximately 3 x 4 meters.
  • What are the environmental benefits of Evacle 80?
    Evacle offers numerous environmental and sustainability benefits, including: Prevention of infectious waste transportation across the country, Reduction of waste volume by up to 80%, Significant reduction in CO2 emissions, Use of environmentally friendly disinfectants, Prevention of odor during the sterilization process, Reduction in the use of plastic containers, The ability to recycle waste after sterilization
  • How does the Evacle 80 machine help reduce CO2 emissions?
    The Evacle machine helps reduce CO2 emissions in several ways. Firstly, it eliminates the need for heat treatment devices and incinerators, which are known to release significant amounts of CO2 during operation. Secondly, it reduces the transportation of infectious waste from hospitals to treatment sites, thereby minimizing the carbon footprint associated with transportation. Overall, the use of Evacle machine leads to a significant reduction in CO2 emissions.
  • How can I ensure that the process was carried out using genuine Evacetic?
    Each Evacetic container is equipped with a unique NFC tag that ensures its authenticity. The machine control system verifies the authenticity of the Evacetic and documents it in the log file. This provides assurance that the process was indeed conducted using genuine Evacetic.
  • What type of log file does the machine have?
    The machine maintains a comprehensive log file that includes data such as cycle time, container ID, waste weight, disinfectant usage, operator name, process temperature, and more. This log file can be displayed on the screen, printed, saved on a USB drive, or stored in the Cloud application.
  • What utilities are required at the machine site?
    Each machine requires a 3-phase 32-amp electricity connection, access to municipal water supply, a sewage connection, and a pressured air supply. It is recommended to have a ventilation system and, if needed, an air conditioning system as well.
  • What is the capacity of one machine?
    One machine can perform 3 cycles per hour. Each cycle can handle 80 liters or 8 kg of waste. Therefore, the output for an 8-hour shift is approximately 1,900 liters or 190 kg. It is important to note that the ratio between volume and weight may vary depending on the type of waste being processed.
  • How many machines should be installed in one hospital?
    Typically, a hospital with 400 beds requires only one machine. Larger hospitals may require two or three machines for efficient waste management.
  • What skills should the operator have, and how many operators are needed?
    The operator does not require any specific or unique skills. However, it is recommended to have some technical experience and problem-solving abilities in order to troubleshoot if needed. One operator can efficiently handle up to three machines.
  • Does the machine have a CE mark?
    Yes, it has a CE mark that is certified by TUV SUD.
  • What will likely be the future gold standard for medical waste treatment?
    Undoubtedly, Evacle is positioned to become the future gold standard for medical waste treatment!!
