Equipment Evaluation Expertise
 

When planning a medical waste treatment facility, choosing not only the right treatment equipment, but all of the supporting machinery for the facility is of utmost importance. 

 

The particular dynamics of the facility location, type of waste, volume, disposal and regulatory mandates all are factors in making sure the right choice is made the first time. 

 

Spurgin & Associates has over 30 years of planning, engineering, equipment selection and layout

experience to help you make sure that the facility will address your needs as well as those of your customers and regulators.

Understand Efficacy Testing

No technology has a one size fits all approach when it comes to treating waste. Every device must be tested to determine that it actually kills all of the pathogens as outlined by national standards and in state regulations. 

 

Autoclaves, chemical systems, dry heat, ozone, microwave and any other technology needs to have validation testing not only to prove disinfection or sterilization but to establish the operating parameters and monitoring on a go forward basis.

Spurgin & Associates can write the testing protocols, work with independent labs, choose the correct biological indicator, and even perform the needed testing to get your permit.
