Point of use Tap Filters for Protection against Legionella
Legionella is a source of danger if water, vapours or aerosols are inhaled and reach the lungs through taps, showers, while washing dishes, or even during teeth brushing.
Point-of-use filters provide immediate protection against Legionella and remove 99.99% of Legionella from the tap.
Water supply systems are a major source of nosocomial infections. Point of use membrane filters installed directly at the water outlet are an established method of protecting patients against waterborne bacteria.
In medical facilities, point-of-use bacterial filters are used either a) reactively, as an immediate solution in the event of contamination with pathogens such as Legionella or pseudomonas or b) proactively, to deliver consistent protection to high-risk patients from the ever present risk of infection.
