HBE is proud to announce the launch of their range of Award Winning Aqua free  Membrane Filters at  the IHEEM Northern Ireland Conference at Slieve Donnard on May 21 & 22nd.

Adrian Byrne, managing director at HBE said “This is a very exciting range of filters to launch at this premiere healthcare event. Our partners Aqua free will be speaking about the range of membranes and then will be available on the HBE stand to discuss the benefits and cost saving measures that this product can bring to a health trust.”

Many health trusts already use filters in their units with vulnerable and immunocompromised patients. These are often disposable filters which cost a considerable amount of money, as well as not truly supporting a trust’s green policies.

The key difference with the Aqua free range, and one of the main reasons why HBE has agreed to partner the membrane filter manufacturer, centres around the reprocessing technology.  Filters can be reprocessed up to 50 times.

Plus, because of their antimicrobial properties, Aqua free membrane filters have a much longer service life than other filters.

Combining the award winning filters with HBE’s trusted service levels ensures that your filters are firstly installed and tested to the required high standards and then changed at the correct intervals, providing you with continuous protection you can trust.

All the technology is leased to reduce the effect of capital investments on budgets and as the filters are reprocessed rather than disposed of, the overall package is significantly more cost effective than replacement with standard disposable filters.
