New countertop disinfectors from Miele for surgeries, chiropodists and tattoo studios

Gütersloh, June 15, 2020 No. 031/2020
  • Compact, flexible and ergonomic

  • Safe reprocessing combined with reduced water and energy consumption

There is not always sufficient space for the machine-based reprocessing of instruments, ensuring reliable results using standardised programmes, temperatures and holding times, where disinfected supplies are required. To address this issue, Miele is now offering a new and compact washer-disinfector specifically designed for ENT, dermatology, gynaecology and chiropody surgeries as well as tattoo studios, which sits neatly on a worktop.

Top-notch capacity on the smallest of footprints: The new PWD 8534 model can be fitted with two different baskets and various inserts to suit individual needs. These accommodate instruments from medical and chiropody practices as well as the equipment used by tattoo studios for proper reprocessing. The capacity per cycle, for instance for ENT instruments: Up to 8 lumened instruments as well as further instruments in various inserts.

The new model is convenient to use. Tailored programmes for specific professions can be selected using direct-access buttons. These include for example specific cycles for gynaecological or surgical instruments. The simple logics of the touch-on-glass colour display simplifies the user interface. Visual control over reprocessing is facilitated by a full glass door which, like the glass fascia with its colour display, is easy to clean. Automatic dispensing is via two pumps which deliver liquid process chemicals as and when needed in the relevant phases of the cycle from integrated supply containers.

A built-in water softener ensures top-class cleaning results. Triple filtration is another key contributing factor. The durability of these machines is guaranteed not least by the use of the high-quality stainless steel from which the spray arms, filters and chamber are made. The latter offers a useable volume of 50 l and hence ample space for all types of medical instruments. The DryPlus active hot-air drying of lumens protects against corrosion. A highly efficient HEPA Class H14 particulate filter prevents air-borne particles from ambient room air from entering the drying system and contaminating instruments.

Compliance with process parameters (in particular pressure and temperature) is monitored by two independent and redundant systems. All reprocessing data can either be printed out or collected and archived using documentation software in compliance with all legal requirements.
