Product Overview

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.

How The CED Continuous Effluent Decontamination System Works:

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.

Why CED Continuous Effluent Decontamination Systems?

  • Ease of Use - Automated operation and self-diagnostics.
  • Productivity - Up to 24 hours of continuous uptime.
  • Cost Savings - Heat recovery reduces energy consumption.
  • Flexibility – Requires considerably less room space than traditional kill tanks.
  • Easy to Validate – Documentation includes full protocols and methods to meet highest industry requirements.
