Microwave (SHF) - how it works…

  • Microwave frequency (SHF) heating is

  • By use of electromagnetic waves of frequency 2450 MHz.

  • Water molecules, present in all cells, being dipolar, try to follow the electric field associated with the electromagnetic waves directed on them

  • This results in oscillations of molecules and the resultant molecular friction causes RAPID HEATING.

  • The ions in the water further help in this phenomenon.

…and what it does

Application of Super High Frequency electromagnetic fields

on waste material results in:

  • Rapid heat up of liquids and ions in the liquid cell material of bacteria and micro organisms,

  • Causes the destruction of

    Cellular membranes

    Virus protein structure

    of all infectious agents of the waste

Waste materials and Application

  • Intravenous catheters, blood (and components) bags and associated tubing, suction tubes etc.

  • Hemodialysis and Peritoneal dialysis Waste (filters, lines, catheters, bags)

  • Cultures, culture dishes and devices used to transfer, inoculate, or mix cultures

  • Surgery costumes, masks and gloves, sponges, gowns associated with waste collection

  • Packing Materials

  • …and any other potentially contaminated waste products of medicine, veterinary or laboratory

Basics of Process

Microwaves come out of the magnetron,

They pass through the waste being processed

After numerous reflections from the walls of the chamber

Waves enter the new areas of the basket continuously.


S uper h igh f requency microwave unit for the sterilization of

SHF

Process Steps - 1

  • Waste collected and packed in plastic bag

  • Bag arranged in re-usable polypropylene Can to fill around 75% volume and covered with transit lids

  • Test strip inserted

  • Bag closed but not tied

  • Sensitizing agent added to the bag and to the Can

  • Lid with filter firmly closed onto the Can.

Process Steps - 2

7. Filled & Closed Cans are put

in Microwave for processing

  • 60 + 15 minute process time

Test strip confirms that the process was successful.

Waste typically compacts by 30% and safe to be handled


Capacity

SHF

Sterilizing of Dialysis Waste

  • Dialysis waste contains residual blood

  • with Highest risk of contamination

  • from HIV, Hepatitis Band C viruses

  • Dialyzers and Bloodlines are very hard

  • to sterilize with chemical disinfectants

  • Use of Microwave Unit for sterilizing of

  • Dialysis Waste is recommended by

  • Fresenius Medical Care

  • - world's largest, integrated provider of

  • dialysis products & services

…but just a beginning of story

Recent tests with sealed ampoules containing “live” B. antracis, Y. pestis, Br. Abortus, F. tularensis and virus vaccines (Variolae, Morbillorum, H5N1, Influenza) were performed.

Tests have shown effectiveness, i.e. possibility of plant application in drugstore warehouses, utilization points for immune-biological preparations without opening ampoules.
