It has been well documented that sink drains are a breeding ground for dangerous microorganisms which get disseminated through aerosols from water splashing into the sinks when they are used, causing the spread of nosocomial infections. KLEANIK™ provides continuous and automatic disinfection of sink drains, preventing the build-up of bio-film and the dissemination of pathogens from drains through aerosols. This ensures that critically ill and vulnerable patients are exposed to one less source of nosocomial infections.
A two-pronged approach is used to inhibit the formation of bio-film and kill bacteria:
Heating of the siphon
Electromechanical vibration of the siphon
