Clinically pure air in operating rooms with the GEA Fresh Heaven |MAXX| O
12. March 2015 <i>MAXX</i> O air ceiling units for operating rooms are laminar air-flow units for pressurized low-turbulence fields, developed exclusively for the strict requirements in operating rooms. This new generation of GEA ceiling units for operating rooms provides a protecting zone of pure air around the patient during surgery.
To ensure optimal protection for the patient during an operation, the conditioned air is directed in the GEA Fresh Heaven MAXX O through Class H14 micro glass-fiber filters. The air exits the Fresh Heaven vertically downward with low turbulence and thereby forms a protective zone around the operating area. Flow speeds are approx. 0.35 m/s. The following option is available: a differential flow field with increased air speed in the vicinity of the operating lamp.
The modular configuration of the GEA Fresh Heaven MAXX O enables adapting its size and output to each environment individually. The dimensions range between 1.83 x 1.23 m and 3.20 x 3.20 m. The larger models can be broken down into four segments for ease of installation. The units are mounted into a suspended ceiling and are connected to the infrastructure of an air handling unit. The GEA Fresh Heaven MAXX O is resistant to corrosion and can therefore be disinfected with alcohol.
The Fresh Heaven electronically monitors the condition of the HEPA filters and shows their status in a display. As an option, filter clogging is indicated by a red LED. Other options for the GEA Fresh Heaven MAXX O include powerful LED lighting and an air-speed sensor.
