Featuring SmartFlow™ technology

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.

Contactless technology

The Vortex+ has completely hands free opening and closing, reducing the risk of cross infection. The foot sensor opening and closing function increases efficiency and eliminates contact with the unit.

Outstanding performance

It's unique twin blade action reduces disposable products to a watery fine slurry. Whilst it's auto-start function makes it easy to use and saves value staff time, as well as preventing machine overloading. The self-diagnosing display panel provides easy-to-understand information.

Easy maintenance

All Vernacare hospital macerators feature a manual emptying override switch, enabling swift and safe discharge of water from the tank if required. Access to the unit is made easy with removable front and side panels.
