New Bioclip mixer ‘banishes bacteria’

Waterborne bacteria are an ever-present threat in healthcare facilities, with Pseudomonas aeruginosa thriving in environments where there is a mix of air and water, most notably in the spout of mixers and taps.

Designed for healthcare environments, Delabie’s new Bioclip pressure-balancing mixer, is specifically designed to prevent infection from bacteria such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa while providing anti-scalding safety. It has a bayonet spout that can be removed for disinfection and cleaning, and can be replaced by a filter spout if the water supply needs to be guaranteed as bacteria-free in sensitive areas. The mixer body and spout also have smooth interiors, reducing bacterial adherence and the build-up of biofilm. The spout itself is curved to ensure there is no residual water at the outlet where bacteria, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa, can develop.

The mixer features an EP pressure-balancing cartridge which delivers a constant mixed water temperature regardless of pressure variations in the system. The mechanism also reduces the hot water flow significantly if the cold water supply fails, reducing scalding the risk of scalding. A pre-set maximum temperature limiter provides additional anti-scalding safety. In addition, thermal shocks are possible without removing the control lever or shutting off the water supply.

The Bioclip pressure-balancing mixer is available with 150 mm or 200 mm centres, and can be easily installed on IPS panels. Delabie says the combination of infection control and anti-scalding safety ‘make it the ideal mixer for technical areas or patient rooms’.
