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 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.

The lid keeps space for all the connection ports, easily identifiable and not exchangeable each other: the VACUUM port, connected to the suction, the PATIENT port having a removable elbow connector to get larger port diameter and allowing suction of fluids containing also small parts of organic material, and the TANDEM port, for the connection in cascade of two or more identical devices to increase the collection capacity. Two plugs placed on the lid allow the hermetic seal of the PATIENT and TANDEM ports, while, always integrated in the cover, a handle facilitates the LINER removal from the support jar, as well as simplifies the transport of the container. The lid hermetic seal makes the use and disposal particularly hygienic, simple and safe, both for the patient and for the staff involved with the removal and replacement of the LINERs and CANISTERs. 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. The FLOVAC®system includes a wide and complete range of accessories.
