SafeStar® Plus Mechanical Filters
Our new SafeStar Plus mechanical HEPA breathing system filters meet high standards for infection prophylaxis in ventilation. The active medium here is a hydrophobic filter membrane of coated glass fibres developed specifically for this purpose. Due to its hydrophobicity, potentially contaminated fluids (e.g. blood, sputum and condensate) cannot pass through SafeStar Plus filters under the normal pressure conditions of mechanical ventilation. As a result, SafeStar Plus can inhibit the passage of fluid-borne microorganisms. Furthermore, SafeStar Plus’ mechanical medium has high bacterial and viral filtration efficiency rates that considerably reduce the passage of airborne microorganisms.
