Ease of Operation
- No staff downtime – timed cycle, no supervision
- Adjustable – air-flow rate & time
- Adaptable – dries a variety of endoscope types
- Meets CSA standard – HEPA filtration
- Airtime uses HEPA filtered air to dry endoscope air/water, suction and auxiliary water channels after automated reprocessing. Also available with an instrument air option.
- A scope removed from the AER can be thoroughly dried so it will not be stored, or put into immediate use, with wet channels.
- Uses two independent pumps and timers that will dry two scopes simultaneously with individual start/stop times. Air pressure will not drop when you begin drying a second scope.
- Restricted channel sensors will immediately shut off the Airtime pump and alert the user of a potentially clogged channel.
- Available options: IV pole mounted, wall mounted or on a counter stand.
