CED Continuous Effluent Decontamination System
Opposed to batch-processing methods of waste treatment such as traditional kill tanks, the STERIS CED Continuous Effluent Decontamination System uses unique upstream solid waste separation/sterilization and alkaline pre-treatment process with smaller space and energy requirements for continuous waste treatment in research, biotechnology and pharmaceutical manufacturing applications.
Effluent stream is gravity drained or pumped to a buffer tank. If present, solid particles are removed from the effluent stream and sterilized prior to entering the buffer tank. Decontamination unit starts and stops automatically, according to user-definable start and stop levels of the tank. Effluent is pressurized and pumped through plant steam heat exchangers to raise temperature to a minimum of ≥150 °C with exposure to achieve decontamination efficiency equal to 45 minutes in a sterilizer, or higher. Effluent is cooled down to customer specific outlet temperature by using cooling water heat exchangers. Decontamination process and system status are continuously monitored and recorded by the self-diagnostic automatic control system.
