Neutralization systems are used to take the pH value of the wastewater to 6-9, before it is released to the receiving environment. Liquid waste from laboratories serving in different sectors, especially hospital laboratories, cannot be sent directly to sewage.
Therefore, such waste waters must be subjected to a pre-treatment phase of neutralization and disinfection. Thus, the liquids with acidic or alkaline properties have been balanced in terms of pH; the generation of pathogenic organisms such as bacteria, virus etc. that it will contain will be prevented.
The tests performed in hospitals' laboratories are carried out with fully automated devices called auto analyzer. Liquid wastes from these devices are considered medical liquid wastes and are included in the hazardous waste class.
Some of the medical liquid wastes are;
In terms of a solution, considering the characteristic of medical liquid waste, it seems appropriate to discharge it into the sewer system after neutralization and disinfection.
Tes Water Group, with its strong R & D and innovation efforts, has developed TN Series Neutralization Systems which neutralize and disinfect all the liquids generated in the laboratories quickly and safely in an automated way.
