HEALTHCARE HYGIENE


SOMETHING SMELLS GOOD


Everyone is aware of the typical, clinical ‘hospital smell’ that permeates through healthcare environments. However, Fragrance Delivery Technologies, through its ‘Oxy-Gen Powered’ systems, are working to improve the smells in healthcare settings. Here, they tell us how.


More than 80% of air fresheners used in commercial or institutional premises are aerosols, which contain mostly gas, solvents or acetones and use propellants that can cause allergic reactions and respiratory difficulties. Hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare institutions need air care solutions that instantly remove odours without affecting the wellbeing of patients and staff.


Oxy-Gen Powered Air Freshness systems, manufactured by Fragrance Delivery Technologies Ltd, are a safe and effective solution to eliminate malodours and deliver a fresh scent continuously for 60 days.


FRAGRANT WELLBEING Hydros Jassem, CEO, Fragrance Delivery Technologies Ltd said: “While developing the Oxy-Gen Powered system, our top priority was the safety and health of people using the facilities as well as that of the service personnel.


“The patented technology addresses major ecological concerns like compounds that are harmful to the ozone like propellants, high levels of VOCs, presence of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and battery disposal.”


This means that hospitals and healthcare providers can ensure a pleasant smelling environment, without worrying about any harmful side effects.


In an independent process, the Oxy-Gen Powered VIVA!e system has been assessed and verified for emissions and energy consumption, and was found to have a significantly lower footprint compared to aerosol products in the market.


CONTINUOUS AND EFFECTIVE It has been a widely accepted practice to mask pungent smells with heavily

scented cleaning products and aerosol systems. These products rarely eliminate malodours and usually contribute in making the environment even more unbearable. The Oxy-Gen Powered cartridges contain Neutra- lox, a proprietary malodour eliminator, which eradicates bad smells and is highly effective against urine, faecal, tobacco, kitchen, body odour, mildew and pet malodours.


With traditional aerosol spray products, the spray is released at timed intervals and the fragrance, though initially unbearably strong, does not linger long enough to last between each spray. Oxy-Gen powered technology ensures that fragrance is released continuously and consistently, thus eliminating the ‘spray and fade’ effect, and there is no change in the fragrance if the room gets warmer, cooler or more humid. The fragrance level and odour control is consistent throughout 60 days.


HASSLE FREE OPERATION Oxy-Gen powered cartridges are made with recyclable plastics so that the empty cartridges can be disposed of via standard plastic recycling bins. The user is also saved from the difficulty of disposing of pressurised aerosol containers.


The system delivers the fragrance at a precise and consistent manner over the life cycle of the cartridge and the built-in LED light indicates to the customer when the 60 days are over. It flashes green to show that it is in operation, orange to remind the user to replace the cartridge, and red to change the batteries after two years.


Oxy-Gen Powered systems work with 2xAA alkaline batteries that last for two years, while in traditional aerosol


systems the hassle of changing and disposing of batteries needs to be endured much more frequently.


STYLISH DESIGNS Oxy-Gen Powered systems are available in two variants, with cartridges that fit both systems. The Oxy-Gen powered VIVA!e dispensers are stylish, compact, easy to install and operate, and are available in a variety of colours to suit any decor. The SHIELD Anti-Vandal System is the only completely stainless steel air freshness system in the world and is perfect for facilities more susceptible to theft and vandalism. Oxy-Gen powered cartridges are EU, CARB and REACH compliant and available in more than 25 fragrances available across a wide range, tested for popularity, including marine, floral, citrus, fruity, designer and oriental scents.


Oxy-Gen Powered systems can be safely used in washrooms to tackle malodours as well as in rooms and common areas to provide a comfortable and soothing environment for patients and visitors.
