MAR COR Purification Announces Award of Health Canada License

New Design Features Energy Conservation and Fully Automated Hot Water Disinfection

Plymouth, MN– Mar Cor Purification announced today that it has been awarded a Class 3 Device License from Health Canada for a Heat Disinfectable Centralized Reverse Osmosis (RO) Water System for Dialysis, named the BioPure HX2. The BioPure HX2 is a Double Pass RO with automatic hot water disinfection with 4 different modes. It is designed to produce high quality water and distribution for large capacity applications up to 50 stations and/or 1,000 foot loop lengths. An added feature to the design is the ability to operate either as a double pass RO or as a single RO in the event of any issues with either pass. In order to reduce the carbon footprint of the system, the system is outfitted with VFD drives and automatic adjustment of product flow and reject flow based on demand and feed water quality, conserving water and energy. The system will be manufactured in the Mar Cor ISO 13485/CMDCAS registered factory in Burlington, Ontario and conforms to various standards including but not limited to: CAN/CSA C22.2#61010-1 Standard for Electrical Safety and IEC 61326-1 Electrical Emissions-General Requirements.

John Rickert, VP Medical Sales, commented, "The BioPure HX is a next generation, state of the art RO and Distribution system, that will meet and exceed the stringent requirements for dialysis and hemodiafiltration water treatment, anywhere in the world. The BioPure HX2 is designed to install quickly, incorporate energy recovery technologies, automatically heat disinfect the entire system, and employs sophisticated hydraulic & pneumatic controls to automatically adjust critical parameters to optimize the system operation. This device will be the benchmark by which all other medical RO systems will be compared to."
