Laservac™ Smoke Evacuation Systems offer a versatile smoke plume management solution for today’s operating environments in clinics and theatres. The dangers of surgical smoke plume generated during laser, diathermy, and electrosurgery are well documented and it is strongly recommended that smoke evacuation units be used to protect both patient and healthcare professionals from the potential hazards of surgical smoke.
Walker Filtration recognised a requirement within the medical sector for effective smoke evacuation and developed the Laservac™ product range. Filtration is achieved in three stages – by air passing through a pre-filter and a two stage, high efficiency filter combining ULPA grade media and activated carbon. The combined effectiveness of the smoke evacuator and overall total filtration package provides an efficiency of >99.9999% at 0.01 micron.
