HOSPITALS AND RESIDENCESIncreases users loyalty
Patients and satisfied users rarely change hospitals, there is no reason for it if they feel comfortable during their stay. Additionally, the average recovery time is reduced and hospital have more rotation of patients.
Simplifies internal logistics
Usually, during the conception of hospitals, waste management is barely planned. Conventional waste management does not require any special design beyond the temporary storage room. Once the hospital is in operation, waste collection is difficult to optimize due to the lack of planification. Pneumatic waste collection keeps this process on a side.
The constant movement of waste is eliminated in common areas of the Hospital, limiting the transport of waste to the hermetic and insulated pipes. This avoids the spread of infections and smells in the Hospital.
Less congested common areas
Corridors and lifts are clear, especially relevant during high demand hours.
No pests, no smells, no leached
Pneumatic collection systems transports waste in an hermetic and safe way, avoiding odors, leached and pests.
Safety for operators and workers
There is no interaction with the waste after being disposed in the system by the users.
Easy access and adapted system
Users with any type of physical limitation can use the system normally without other’s help. Inlets can be opened easily, heights are adapted and inlets have icons with relief for blind users.
Space savings: new areas available for useful activities
Due to the small size of the installation, a big amount of m2 is released to be used for useful application, like new rooms or storage.
Improved recycling rates, maximizing savings
Every new system requires a learning process, the training of users is not only focused in safety of the users but also on the correct way to dispose of waste, increasing recycling rates and reducing the total cost of waste management.
Reduced operating costs
Test results have shown savings in waste management between 20 and 40% compared to conventional manual handling.
Pneumatic waste collection plants are automatic and can work without supervision every day, every time.
Less energy consumption
Due to the patented smart software, URD system will learn the habits of the users and will schedule the collection times taking in consideration the price of the electric energy.
Quantifies and allows to visualize the reduction of the eco-footprint
URD's smart software generates large amounts of information. It can be used for optimization of the system, check the collection ratios, energy consumption, among others. These parameters are used to reduce the eco-footprint of the system, for the benefit of the Environment.
No additional personnel required for maintenance and operation
Pneumatic waste collection plants require very few operation and maintenance work, between 1 and 3 workers part-time, depending on the size of the system. Compact systems can be operated with the maintenance staff of the building.
The terminal does not need additional space to be installed
For small systems, area required to install a pneumatic waste collection plant is the same than the required by a conventional compactor container.
Increases the brand value
Pneumatic collection is an environmentally-friendly solution aligned with the concepts "intelligent building" and “Circular economy”. Those organizations implementing pneumatic waste collection solutions have a great reason to add these concepts in their corporate dna, increasing the value and reputation of their brand.
