Vita Extract | Gas & Smoke Extraction

Gas and smoke extraction solution

The Halton Vita Extract solution provides a health-friendly work environment by removing hazardous gases directly at their source. Anaesthetic gases are collected from the patient’s mask after they have been exhaled, and smoke produced in surgeries is collected straight from the diathermy device or surgery area.

Why choose Halton's Vita Extract?

Halton Vita Extract is a solution for anaesthetic gas and surgical smoke extraction in medical use. Nitrous oxide is good and well proven pain relief during childbirth, but even low concentrations in the room air can cause headaches, nausea and tiredness to medical staff. Surgical smoke generated in laser and electrosurgical procedures is an inconvenience and can be hazardous to medical personnel.

Halton Vita Extract creates better air quality in hospital environment by evacuating anaesthesia gases and surgical smoke directly from the source.

Halton Vita Extract key features:

  • Removes hazardous gases and minimizes exposure to unhealthy substances
  • Energy-efficient performance ensured by one or several frequency controllers
  • Reliable performance thanks to high-quality components
  • Low noise level
  • Low maintenance need
  • Connectivity with Building Management System (BMS)

The vacuum is generated by one or multiple blower fans of the central unit that is typically located in a ventilation machine room. Vacuum piping is routed throughout the building to individually controlled suction inlets.

The constant vacuum pressure in the pipework, generated by the vacuum blowers in the central units, extracts the gases out of the medical equipment and forces them out through the exhaust piping. Dedicated sound attenuators suppress pipe noises for the user’s comfort.

  • Design support
  • Central units
  • Flow control valves
