FLOVAC® disposable containers

The FLOVAC® disposable containers are used for the collection of organic fluids in suction and have been designed and manufactured for applications of “high flow and high vacuum” (EN ISO 10079-1 and EN ISO 10079-3).
This system mixes simplicity and practicality, guaranteeing great safety from contamination for operators, for the suction plants and for the environment, thanks to the use of the latest manufacturing technologies and of absolutely reliable materials.

The containers are made in four sizes, to be used according to the effective requirements about the volumes expected to be suctioned, and they are manufactured in two distinct versions:
LINER VERSION | made by a reusable support rigid container and a disposable collection system, consisting of a resistant bag hermetically welded to the cover;
CANISTER VERSION | fully disposable system consisting of a rigid container and a lid to be hermetically coupled before the start of the suction.
Both versions show differentiated connecting ports for connecting the collection container with the suction line, with the patient and, if necessary, with another container to increase the suctioned fluid capacity (TANDEM port). The FLOVAC® system is the result of twenty years of flow-meter™ experience in the production of disposable devices for the collection of suctioned fluids and get the most important characteristics in its special hydrophobic filter. This filter protects the vacuum generating devices or the centralized suction plant from contamination, as it performs the function of overflow valve, turning off the suction when wetted by the fluid reaching the maximum level of container filling. To complete the FLOVAC® range flow-meter™ has designed the configuration with mechanical overflow valve and antibacterial filter, available both for LINER and for CANISTER versions. This construction has its best use in applications when high suction flows are required and in conditions of abundant nebulisation of the suctioned fluids. LINER system is equipped with anti-reflux system to prevent patient and operator to come in touch with contaminated fluids in case of spillage through the ports happening during the hose disconnection. An optional non-return valve on the PATIENT port is also available for additional safety in the most critical applications.
