Point of use Tap Filters for Protection against Legionella
Legionella is a source of danger if water, vapors or aerosols are inhaled and reach the lungs using taps, showers, while washing dishes, teeth or taking a shower.
Point-of-use filters provide immediate protection against Legionella and remove 99.9999% of Legionella from the tap.
Water supply systems are a major source of nosocomial infections. Point of use membrane filters installed directly at the water outlet are an established method of protecting patients against waterborne bacteria.
In medical facilities, point of use bacterial filters are used either reactively, as an immediate solution in the event of contamination with pathogens such as Legionella or pseudomonas or proactively, to deliver consistent protection to high risk patients from the ever present risk of infection.
