The power of SmartFlow™
Every hospital macerator in the industry-leading Vernacare range contains our SmartFlow™ technology. Designed to ensure an even flow of product, SmartFlow™ is a unique maceration system that ensures waste is only released to drain once maximum water dispersion has been achieved. Through continued action inside the drum the particle size is minimised, ensuring no dry or bulky material can pass into the pipework.
Why is SmartFlow Technology so important?
Our unique SmartFlow technology ensures an efficient dissolution of the products, ensuring no dry or bulky material can pass into the pipework.

The Vortex range is designed to operate within a 2-minute cycle using 24 litres of cold water and can dispose a maximum of 4 single-use containers at one time or 2 washbowls.
Which features are unique to the Vortex +?
The Vortex+ encompasses contactless technology. It is a completely hands-free machine, specifically designed to reduce the risk of cross infection as well as save nursing time.
