INTRODUCTION
Medical waste is a 5 billion pound problem for hospitals and surgery centers each year. Medical waste fluid generated during surgery is a costly and growing concern for healthcare personnel across the country. Due to technological advancements and the popularity of endoscopic procedures, such as cystoscopy and arthroscopy, there is a tremendous increase in the amounts of potentially infectious waste fluid. As a result, disposal of the medical waste fluids has become a financial burden for hospital administrations. With increased efforts by the Environmental Protection Agency and the American Hospital Association to reduce waste, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s efforts to enforce Title 29, Part 1910.1030, concerning healthcare personnel safety, Southern Medwaste LTD realizes that hospitals and surgery centers are in need of simple, costeffective and safe solutions for disposal of medical waste fluid. Specifically designed to comply with OSHA Title 29, Part 1910.1030, concerning blood-borne pathogens, hospitals and surgery centers can now eliminate red bag expenses with the Accelewaste™, a simple but innovative waste fluid elimination and disposal system. The Accelewaste™ is a compact, stand-alone, wall-mounted unit that optionally adds a disinfectant before safely discarding the waste fluid down existing facility sewer lines. The Accelewaste™ empties and discards fluid from any suction canister, liner, collection bag, kick bucket or any other fluid collection source. The process is quick, efficient and safe. Able to evacuate a standard suction canister in less than 30 seconds, the Accelewaste™ has the fastest fluid disposal time in the industry. Research has shown that suction canisters may be changed as many as 40 times in one and a half to two-hour procedure. Because of this high volume handling of waste fluid, the chance of spills and personnel exposure to potentially infectious blood-borne pathogens increases dramatically.
Hospital and surgery center liability can extend for as long as 30 years when personnel contamination occurs. With the Aqua- Box, the risks associated with transportation of the canisters to distant locations for disposal are virtually eliminated. In most cases, the Accelewaste™ pays for itself in less than four months by saving hospitals and surgery centers thousands of dollars associated with red bag disposal fees. And because the Accelewaste™ offers a safer alternative for handling the potentially infectious fluids, hospitals and surgery centers can expect fewer liabilities creating even more bottom line savings. Optionally, a disinfectant can be added to the evacuated waste fluid, making for an even safer disposal process. The Accelewaste™ can be installed in just about any wallmounted location, thus not consuming any valuable floor space. For location convenience, the Accelewaste™ can be placed in areas near the operating room, central processing, labor and delivery and the emergency department. Due to its simple operation, space saving design, low maintenance requirements and potential cost savings, the Accelewaste™ is becoming the standard for waste fluid disposal.

OSHA & EPA CONSIDERATIONS
OSHA has issued a regulation titled OSHA Regulations (Standards – 29 CFR) Bloodborne Pathogens. – 1910–1030 that spells out the manner in which staff members are to handle medical waste fluid as well as other potentially infectious waste. In November of 1999, a compliance directive titled CPL 2–2.44d was issued that requires employers to “... update their Bloodborne Pathogen Exposure Control Plan to document consideration and implementation of ‘safer medical devices.’ Employers are also required to use engineering and work practice controls that eliminate occupational exposure, or reduce it to the lowest feasible extent, through a comprehensive program including engineering controls (i.e. the use of ‘safer medical devices’) and proper work practices.
Employers must provide training to all employees in the use of these safer medical devices.

INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
A standard 110/120 AC Volt, 15/60-Hertz cycle, 3 Amp electrical outlet is required for the power switch for the 1500 and 1300 Models; no electricity is required for Model 1200. A unit can typically be installed in less than three hours, including plumbing by the in-house biomedical or maintenance department.
For 1500, 1300 & 1200 Models, a 3/4” water line with a minimum flow rate of 12 gallons per minute at 30 PSI is required for optimal performance. Smaller pipes or slower flow rates will result in longer evacuation times. Purchaser of the Accelewaste™ is responsible for the installation of the included RPZ (reduced pressure zone backflow preventer) valve for the fresh water line.

DISINFECTANT SOLUTION

This feature has been added mainly to accommodate those facilities that simply prefer to treat their fluid on their own accord. This feature can be easily turned on or off. The ratio of sodium hypochlorite (common household bleach) to waste fluid is pre-set at 1,100 PPM (parts per million).

POWER SWITCH/TIMER
Models 1500-00 & 1300-00
The Accelewaste™ power button is set to stay on for 2 minutes. This pre-set time can be easily changed by the facility as needed. A “kill” switch (the red button on the right side of the electrical box) will turn off the unit prior to the end of the timed cycle if desired.
Model 1300-R
The Accelewaste™ power button is set to stay on for 5 minutes This pre-set time can be easily changed by the facility as needed. A “kill” switch (the red button on the right side of the electrical box) will turn off the unit prior to the end of the timed cycle if desired.
Model 1200-00
This model does not have a power switch/timer.

PLUMBING CONNECTIONS: ALL UNITS
1. A 3/4” standard copper water supply line will need to supply a minimum of 12 gallons per minute at 30 psi (minimum). A 1” Reduced Pressure Zone (RPZ) valve is included and must be installed with the system per local codes. The installation diagram follows. The RPZ valve will need to be tested and certified by a licensed plumber. For all plumbing connections, especially the PVC connections, be sure to connect the fittings securely. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN FITTINGS!
2. Connect the 3/4” copper water supply line to the inlet of the RPZ valve.
3. Connect a section of 3/4” copper pipe to the outlet of the RPZ valve. It is recommended that union fittings be used on either side of the RPZ valve so that it can be easily removed should maintenance be required.
4. For 1500 & 1300 Models: Install the inlet of the electric solenoid valve after the RPZ valve.
5. For 1500 & 1300 Models: Connect the outlet of the electric solenoid valve to the inlet of the Accelewaste™.

MAINTENANCE

Cleaning
Routine maintenance is limited to a periodic enzymatic cleaning to prevent mineral and organic build up allowing the unit to run at peak efficiency. The Accelewaste™ must have an enzymatic cleaner flushed through it on a weekly basis to prevent mineral and organic build-up. This will keep the unit running at peak efficiency. One gallon of concentrated cleaner will last well over a year in most facilities. Any enzymatic cleaner already stocked by the facility will work. A recommended weekly enzymatic cleaner is available from:
Enzyme Industries
Heath, OH
Phone: 888-236-9963
Product #4198-1
To clean, mix enzymatic cleaner with water according to manufacture’s instructions in a suction canister, or other container. Evacuate the enzymatic solution as you would normally.
Reduced Pressure Zone (RPZ) Valve
The RPZ valve requires annual certification by a licensed plumber. It may require periodic maintenance in accordance with the manufacture’s instructions. Maintenance kits are available at most plumbing supply stores.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Backwash Procedure
If unit is running, but suction is weak, something could be caught in the suction line. You will need to backwash the suction line.
1. Remove the brass check valve before the gray suction hose along with the suction hose (non-rinsing units only).
2. Screw the suction line back into the Accelewaste™ without the check valve (non-rinsing units only).
3. Open the thumb valve of the suction hose with the tube attached, placing the tube in a canister, sink, or bucket.
4. With the Accelewaste™ running, slowly start closing the ball valve on the discharge side of the Accelewaste™ unit (left lower). Only close the valve enough to dislodge stoppage, and then
reopen the valve.
5. Remove the gray suction hose and replace the check valve on the suction line.
6. Resume usage of the unit.
7. (For non rinse units only) If the back wash does not clear the suction port, remove the check valve, and insert a stiff wire with a small bend at the end into the suction port as far as it will go. Rotate the wire to catch and solids that are lodged. Remove the solids and back wash again to make sure the port is clear. Replace the check valve and the suction line.
