In the same way as the Pneumatic Tube System (PTS), the Automatic Waste and Laundry System (AWLS) works with pneumatic tube transport, just in a slightly bigger form. Instead of cartridges with samples it transports bags with garbage or dirty laundry. This usually occurs initially via free fall, and the waste or laundry is then redirected with a pneumatic system to the actual end point (waste container or laundry room).
Hospitals in particular produce large amounts of garbage and dirty laundry, and therefore this system not only saves a great deal of work and time but also makes a significant contribution to hygiene and process optimization. AWLS minimizes the contamination- and infection hazard and prevents odor pollution.
- easy to use and to maintain
- operation comfort
- cleanliness and repidity of waste collecting
- deployment flexibility and fitting to the building structure
- with tailored projects
