DAYTON, OH — The Centurion portable dialysis water treatment system from AmeriWater has been FDA cleared, officially certifying the single patient unit for use in medical facilities or at home.

Heat disinfection that includes the membrane
Unlike other dialysis water treatment systems, the unique integrated heat disinfection design of the Centurion disinfects the entire unit in a single step – including the membrane and the delivery lines up to the inlet of the dialysis machine. This highly effective and environmentally-friendly heat disinfection saves valuable staff time, reduces chemical costs and ensures all parts of the system are disinfected.

An advanced design for single patient care in-center or at home
To meet the demands of most modern dialysis machines, the Centurion has a flow rate of 1500 milliliters per minute based on a 50°F supply. The unit has a built-in UF device to enhance the microbiological quality to UPW levels ie <0.03 Endotoxin units and <0.1 cfu/ml bacteria, making the water suitable not just for hemodialysis but for hemodiafiltration. The Centurion is also equipped with many of the features of much larger units. These include: a state of the art touch screen display, optional data logging, backflow protection of the incoming mains water supply, an internal leak detection system, a "whisper mode" for nocturnal dialysis, and more. To optimize energy consumption the unit has a variable speed pump. The quiet operation and sleek design of the Centurion makes it unobtrusive in a facility or at home. A dedicated cart is available for portability.

“We’re very excited to introduce this innovative unit which complements our complete line of dialysis water treatment systems for home use, and medical facilities.” said AmeriWater CEO Diane Dolan. AmeriWater is a premier provider of water treatment solutions for dialysis, healthcare and industrial applications. Established in 1995, AmeriWater is head-quartered in Dayton, Ohio with regional distributors across the Western Hemisphere. In 2011, AmeriWater was acquired by Degremont.
