Water Saving and Tempering Device for Sterilization

What is the Water-Mizer
The average sterilizer uses between 1 to 5 gallons of water per minute continuously. The water is used to reduce the temperature of hot condensate created in the sterilizing process prior to sending it down the drain. The Water-Mizer, a water-saving device, eliminates the "tempering" water consumption during the non-sterilizing portion of the sterilizer’s cycle thereby substantially reducing overall water consumption.
Why Use the Water-Mizer
There are two reasons to use a water tempering device. First, most municipalities prohibit draining water hotter than 140° F (60° C) into their sewer systems. And second, PVC drain pipes are susceptible to damage from water that is too hot. When faced with either of these situations, the WATER-MIZER is the solution!
What the Water-Mizer Can Do For Your Facility
Most steam sterilizers waste gallons of water by using continuous cold water to temper the steam condensate. The WATER-MIZER monitors the drain temperature and applies cold water only when needed – resulting in tremendous water savings. In fact, the average savings* with a WATER-MIZER installed is approximately 45-50 gallons per hour per sterilizer with a cost savings of $2,500 per sterilizer per year.

The WATER-MIZER is non-electric so no wiring is required. It operates independently from OEM controls and can be used with the majority of bulk steam sterilizers including: AMSCO 2000 & 3000 Series, Pre-1995 Getinge/Castle, and Other Older Model Bulk Sterilizers. In addition, its space-efficient design allows it to be mounted two different ways – by attaching it directly to the frame of sterilizer equipment or by attaching it to an adjustable floor stand.
