Sustainable and competitive life-time cost
Opragon systems can offer 30% lower cost of ownership compared to standard laminar airflow systems, as stated by an article in the Journal of Hospital Infection (Oct 2017). The Opragon boasts a low energycost without compromising efficiency, which is unique compared to other similar systems.
The Opragon system has a flexible design that is tailor-made for each installation. The minimum space requirement between the structural and false ceilings is 30 cm (approx. 12 inches), which allows for installations in rooms with limited space in both new and refurbished units. This makes it easy to fit with other parts of the OR construction.
The Opragon is easy to maintain after installation which reduces total life-time cost – an important factor for the solid customer satisfaction among the clinics that have been using the Opragon for up to ten years so far.
Example of an Opragon installation
1. Central Opragon unit: Cooled HEPA-filtered air provides an ultra-clean environment.
2. Peripheral airshowers: Their number varies depending on the size of the room. They control the room temperature and accelerate the sedimentation. The intake air is HEPA-filtered.
3. Exhaust air: The exhaust air is evacuated symmetrically at floor level.
The Opragon technology is scientifically validated
An article in the Journal of Hospital Infection (Oct 2017) by Lund University shows that Opragon creates ultra-clean conditions in the whole room. It does so using less energy than other alternatives, while having the best working conditions. A full list of 25+ supporting scientific papers is available on request.
