Processing Medical Waste
What you need to know when buying Sterilization Equipment
Capital Equipment Cost
Is cost the most important
aspect of the purchase? The Mark-Costello Co. sterilization systems are the
least expensive of any biohazardous waste manufacturer in the USA.
Flexibility of Design
How much technology do you
need or want? The Mark-Costello Co. allows our customers to choose the level
of technical sophistication they desire. We offer a simple system that does
not require computer expertise. A chart recorder or digital printer is used
to record cycle time and temperature. However, for those who prefer
state-of-the-art sterilization systems, we build the most complete "no
handling" Totally Automated Robotic waste treatment system available.
Life Expectancy of Unit
How long can we expect to
operate the sterilizer before a replacement is necessary? The Mark-Costello
Co. has customers with sterilizers that have been in continuous operation
for over 20 years.
Handle a Wide Variety of Medical Waste Containers
Mark-Costello medical waste processing systems can be designed to take
advantage of a wide range of medical waste containers to preserve the value of
your current container equipment investment.
How difficult is it to load the sterilizer chamber? Some medical waste
sterilizers require the operator to place a liner in a tilted chamber and use a
ring clamp to secure it. Height of the unit can be a problem with ground level
units. The only other option is the use of a portable cart dumper. When using
The Mark-Costello Co. cart system, the carts are simply draped with a liner and
the loaded cart moved into the chamber via a lightweight ramp, via a lightweight
ramp, hydraulically operated carriage, or a hydraulically operated scissor lift.
What are estimated maintenance costs for the sterilizer? Our customers tell us
their maintenance costs for The Mark-Costello Co. standard sterilizers average
approximately $60 per month and basically involve lubrication and the occasional
change of the door gasket.
