MEDICAL AND SURGICAL SUCTION SYSTEMS

In modern medicine, precision, reliability and dependability count, especially when high performance is important and required; day after day. For this reason, more than 2000 clinics worldwide work using Becker vacuum pumps – the reliable pacesetter for central suction units.

Becker has provided a great innovation: 100% oil free vacuum units for many areas of clinical and outpatient treatment. These proven units fulfil the tough requirements of the Australian Standard AS 2896-2011 Medical gas systems.

Oil free vacuum pumps for medical technology are a true Becker innovation, which operate with practical virtually maintenance-free dependability.

THE STRONG HEART OF TECHNOLOGY

In modern medicine, precision, reliability and dependability count, especially when high performance is important and required; day after day. For this reason, more than 2000 clinics worldwide work using Becker vacuum pumps – the reliable pacesetter for central suction units.

Becker has provided a great innovation: 100% oil free vacuum units for many areas of clinical and outpatient treatment. These proven units fulfil the tough requirements of the Australian Standard AS2896-1998 Medical Gas Systems.

Oil free vacuum pumps for medical technology are a true Becker innovation, which operate with practical virtually maintenance-free dependability. At over 90%, the share of Becker dry-running systems in America are extremely high, and not without good reason: clinics in America are operated strictly according to the “best value for money”.

OUR SYSTEM

Using 100% oil-free vacuum pumps with long life vanes and a 20,000 hour guarantee on the Series X models.

Becker’s VariAir range of pumps include a variable speed drive installed directly on the pump. VariAir is Becker’s patented intelligent variable speed drive technology.

Human Machine Interface (HMI) touch screen with user and technician adjustable settings;
lead pump auto/manual,
manual/auto restart,
ability to expand up to 6 pumps,
many load and pump speed settings,
load trend graph,
pump and system service indicators,
individual component alarms all designed to be user friendly and flexible to match the hospital requirements

Space saving design; the smallest footprint on the market.

Reduce your operating, energy and maintenance costs.

Built to Australian Standard AS 2896-2011

BECKER VARIAIR* UNITS IN MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY

Maximise Usefulness, Minimise Operating Expenses. Coupled with integral speed regulation, central suction systems also make energy and operational cost savings possible. The required flow of suction air is equal to the required volume needed for optimal efficiency: no excess, no wasted energy.

The quiet running and continually controlled operation ensure very smooth running of the plant. Further, the receiver tank sizes can be smaller, and precious space is saved, and even where space is at a premium, the installation is trouble free.

*VARIAIR IS BECKER’S PATENTED INTELLIGENT VARIABLE SPEED TECHNOLOGY.

BENEFITS OF OUR MEDICAL SUCTION SYSTEMS

MEETS AUSTRALIAN STANDARDS

Each of our systems are designed and built to meet the AS2896-2011 Medical Gas Systems requirements for medical/surgical vacuum systems.

AUSTRALIAN MADE

Becker Pumps Australia manufacture the Medical Suctions Systems right here at our Brisbane Head Office.

CUSTOMISABLE

Being made locally all system can be customised to a customer’s specific requirements e.g. combined medical, laboratory, dental, anaesthetic gas systems “one controller 2 systems in one”

THE VACUUM PUMPS

HIGH EFFICIENCY MOTORS

Our pumps use heavy duty high efficiency motors with class-F insulation as standard equipment.

NO VIBRATION

Smooth running rotary vane pumps require no special foundations.

QUIET

Rotary operation has no pulsations, and sound reducing technology is built-in, resulting in some of the quietest pumps in the world.

AIR COOLED

All Becker pumps are air cooled.

NO WATER

Our systems do not use water for any reason. Water and sewer charges are eliminated and water pollution is never a problem. Furthermore, your dependence on another utility is eliminated.

100% OIL FREE

Our systems are 100% oil free; therefore, there is no oil to fill, drain, change, or discard. No oil aerosols are ever present in the discharge air. Oil-Lubricated pumps are available from Becker for greater pressure levels when required.

INLET FILTERS

Every system includes inlet filters before each pump to prevent pump damage due to foreign particles.

THE ELECTRONICS

PROGRAMMABLE LOGIC CONTROLLER (PLC)

All functions in all Becker system are controlled by a PLCand can be expanded up to 6 pumps without a new PLC or software. If the PLC ever needs replacing, the system will operate in default mode.

PRESSURE TRANSDUCER

All systems use a pressure transducer. This keeps the vacuum system operating between two fixed set points as an alternative to systems that use multiple mechanical vacuum switches, each of which has different set points. A transducer provides high accuracy and repeatability.

REDUNDANT CONTROL DEVICES

While AS2896-1998 requires redundant low voltage reducing devices, not all methods are truly redundant. Ours uses a relay to automatically turn on the default mode on any control failure, in addition we provide an alarm to warn when the system is operating in default mode(something most other brands do not provide).

LAST PUMP RUNNING ALARM

An alarm, which signals when the last pump is in operation. It indicates as a general BMS alarm, along with transducer failure & drive faults, these faults are shown on the HMI screen & contained in the fault history.

AUTOMATIC LEAD LAG ALTERNATION

The pumps automatically alternate on a first-on first-off basis; this ensures that all pumps share the duty cycle equally. The first pump will not run again until all other pumps in the system run. This extends the life of the pumps and the service interval.

VARIABLE SPEED DRIVES

Whether fitted directly to our Variair range of vacuum pumps, or installed on the frame, Becker Pumps Australia uses Variable Speed Drives to ensure constant pressure, reduce your power consumption costs and increase the life of your pump to reduce maintenance costs. This is only available with oil-free vacuum pumps.

THE BENEFITS OF RACK MOUNTING

EXPANDABLE

All systems are expandable and grow as your facility grows, and all expand from a 2 pump system to a 6 pump system and all requirements in between. No parts are discarded when expanding. Inexpensive control and pump modules are available from stock. That is something our competitors’ tank mounted units cannot do.

MODULAR

Our expandable systems are modular, with no section wider than the opening of a standard 92cm doorway on most models. Modules quickly bolt together, and are designed to mix and match to meet specific requirements.

COMPACT

Our expandable units have a footprint that is among the smallest of any system on the market, and expand vertically to save valuable space.

CONVENIENT SERVICE POINTS

All service points are easily accessible. No dangerous crawling over components is necessary.

SINGLE POINT SERVICE CONNECTIONS

Once the unit is placed in position and fastened together, only one inlet, discharge (optional), and electrical connection is required.

THE INCLUSIONS

BACTERIAL FILTERS

Bacterial Filters are fitted to the systems when required and are standard on all systems to meet AS 2896-2011.

RECEIVER TANK

Built to Australian Standard AS1210-1989/1997. Smaller tanks can be provided to save space. Using our Variair Units the system can be held at a constant pressure. Please note: Whilst the new standard (AS 2896-2011) states that receiver tanks are not required when using a Variable Speed (or Frequency) Drive system, Becker recommends that all systems are fitted with one used as a balance vessel to ensure constant pressure is met.

VACUUM GAUGE

A 100mm diameter kPa gauge is standard.

MANUALS

All Becker Medical Suction Systems come complete with full manuals supplied in a hardcopy and soft copy. The manual includes the operating and maintenance instructions for the pumps, details about the PLC installed along with the key features it has been programmed to do, and other useful information about all the equipment as installed in your system.
