Compact and reliable Getinge WPT 150, from PWS, in place in the new sterilization center at Sollefteå Hospital.

Modern sterile center in Sollefteå

2019-06-12
Sollefteå Hospital chooses CUBO when they modernize their sterilization center; the machinery for washing and sterilizing operating instruments and operating equipment. The order is a collaboration with Getinge. The CUBO is adapted to their and the customer's wishes and carries the model name Getinge WPT 150.

- Previously, ordinary municipal water has been used in the dishwashers and autoclaves in Sollefteå. With our compact pure water system, the machines get, simply expressed, twice as long a lifetime and need half as much service and maintenance. This is because the water is purified from minerals, salts, lime and other things that can interfere with the operation and affect the purity of the goods, says Lars Wiklund, PWS CEO and founder.

The machine was manufactured at PWS headquarters and manufacturing plant in Falun and is now installed and commissioned at Sollefteå Hospital. PWS technicians have also drawn a shorter clean water loop.

- Double sterile filters were also mounted on outgoing water to remove any microorganisms. In total, our efforts took about a week, concludes Lars Wiklund.

Karolinska Institutet, KI, has a clean water facility similar to the one that is being  installed at the Livsmedelsverket.

Livsmedelsverket chooses CUBO

UPPSALA.
PWS secures another prestigeous assignment in Uppsala. After winning a procurement, PWS will deliver a CUBO 500 EDI to Livsmedelsverket.

- The highest concentration of CUBO's in Sweden will be in the advanced research environment at Livsmedelsverket, Veterinary and Animal Center, Biomedical Center and Hubben / Uppsala Science Park. It is both honorable and fun, says Lars Wiklund, PWS founder and CEO.

The new house where Livsmedelsverket will be seated is named after Anders Celsius, who named the temperature unit. The construction has started. PWS will start with the piping system during the early summer.

- It was decisive that we could show good references from similar projects and in this case these were found a few hundred meters away. It was appreciated by the developer, the contractor and the end user. Even at VHC, Biocentrum and Hubben the requirements were high, both on the water treatment plants themselves and on the piping and the implementation of the contract, says Lars Wiklund.

Livsmedelsverket’s laboratory requires a large amount of pure water. Therefore, the CUBO is supplemented with a rig where a larger tank, extra pumps and filter housing are placed. A similar solution is already in operation at Karolinska Institutet, KI, for example.

- Our CUBO and the rig are constructed at the head office and production facility in Falun. Then everything is mounted smoothly in place. What takes time in the Celsius property in Uppsala is the extensive piping in several floors, therefore we will start the mounting as soon as possible, concludes Lars Wiklund.

Educating in South Korea

2019-04-05
Our Senior Application Specialist Jim Visser has arrived back home from South Korea. During his stay he educated employees at the Samsung Medical Centre, Gagnam/Seoul (SMC) in operation administration and maintenance. SMC opened in 1994 and has 1979 beds and has the last 20 years received multiple awards for their high-quality care. 

With us partnering with Getinge Group we managed to assemble a Cubo Compact 500 RO (WPT 500) to SMC's cancer department. 

Cubo 1200 is on its way

2019-03-29
It takes some logistics support to get a facility such as the one we sent to Huddinge New Sterile Central. "Riggen" that weighs about 600 kilos and is 2,8 metres long, will be able to produce 1200 litres pure water per hour.

New sector customer

2019-02-26
– We have delivered our first CUBO/Getinge WPT that will be used in a laundry. I tested and installed it in the middle of January and everything went as planned. It now produces pure water that is being used in an autoclave where operation gowns are sterilised.

Those are the words of Gustav Andersson, service technician at PWS, after his mission at Uudenmaan Sairaalapesula in Järvenpää, 38 kilometres north of Helsinki. Yearly the laundry washes nine million kilo of textiles and the company's revenue is 20 million euros. 

– Beside the installation, with customer specific programming, I also held a short education for employees. Now that they have basic knowledge as to how the machine works, they can easily do smaller tasks such as change filter, Andersson continues.

It was delivered via our partner Getinge whose CUBO is called Getinge WPT, Water Pre-treatment. The delivery to the laundry also means that PWS now can add a customer to their books. Previous deliveries to finish hospitals in the region made the new order possible. 

– It is great to see that our machines can be used in multiple ways, in many different surroundings. In this case it was installed on a existing line, where an older water-cleaning had previously been. Which made things run very smooth.

Kullbergska Hospital has a CUBO 300 that is tested on sight after being installed.

CUBO increases life span in Katrineholm

2019-02-13
Our latest customer to invest in an advanced pure water facility from Pure Water Scandinavia is Kullbergska Hospital in Katrineholm. The hospital choose a CUBO 400 that was connected to the existing piping. 

The pure water facility, with a capacity of 400 litres pure water per hour, was installed by the new year. It was recently commissioned by a technician from PWS together with employees from the Hospital. 

– Considering that the hospital is not familiar with the kind of water cleaning that we produce we wanted to make sure that the maintenance staff was fully informed about the function and construction of the CUBO. Since it can be monitored and controlled via a touch screen online it is very easy to keep the machine going without any issues, says Lars Wiklund who is the founder and CEO of PWS. 

The pure water from CUBO will go to dish machines and autoclaves in the hospital. Since the water is super clean the units won't wear down as fast and the equipment will be even cleaner.
– With right pure water the life span of these units will increase, which will save the hospital money over time. It is great that we could help yet another customer achieve this, Lars Wiklund says.

The capacity is 500 litres of purely clean water per hour and E also tells that EDI, electrodeionization, is installed in the compact machine. ​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​

In Hong Kong it was installed and put to practice by a Getinge-technician who has been trained by PWS Senior Application Specialist Jim Visser. The training took place in connection with a machine transport to Australia in the spring of 2017. In Brisbane multiple technicians was gathered. 

– It was a drill that had great results for everyone involved. It favoured our and Getinges entrence to the very special chinese market, with the CUBO/WPT. We are also very happy about the fact that there is a intent to deliver two more machines to Hong Kong during 2019, Lars Wiklund says.
