Removable tap spouts help counter cross infection

Douglas Delabie, removable tap spout

Douglas Delabie, which specialises in thermostatic control solutions and accessories for healthcare, has introduced an electronic wall-mounted top featuring a Bioclip spout with fixed and removable options for mounting on panels up to 20 mm thick. The spout can easily be removed for disinfection to help counter cross infection. These taps also have an anti-bacterial duty flush that operates every 24 h after the last use.

Two removable brass spouts enable continuous use during disinfection. A flow straightener ensures that impurities are not retained.

As an alternative, Douglas Delabie offers a disposable option with 15 spouts in recyclable Hostaform with a star-shaped flow straightener.

These units come with a chrome-plated mounting plate, separate detection sensor for wall mounting, electronic box for mains supply, duty flush and 12 V ½ in solenoid valve with filter joints.

Bioclip removable spouts can also be used with non-contact taps operated by a knee or foot.
