The Sterilwave 440 was approved by the French Ministry of Health in 2012 and allows large institutions such as hospitals and waste collection companies to treat up to 800L of biomedical waste per hour (70kg/hr*) in complete safety.
Its innovative concept uses a suspended vessel and rotating grinder blades to grind down all types of waste. Biohazardous waste is sterilised using microwaves and converted into inert municipal waste, reducing its volume by more than 80% and its weight by 25%. Its environmental impact and operating costs are reduced while ensuring the safety of the operator.
As it uses microwave technology, the Sterilwave does not need a steam generator, so there is no risk from excess pressure and no liquid effluent is produced. Its easy installation requires only 20m² of space for safe treatment of large quantities of biomedical waste. (*with a density of 0.1kg/litre)
