    Spherasorb® soda lime - Intersurgical

 
What is Spherasorb?

A unique medical grade soda lime designed specifically for clinical use - Spherasorb’s chemical formulation has been developed specifically to address the potential problems of use within the medical environment.

Features and Benefits

  • Only 1.5 % Sodium Hydroxide - less than standard Soda Lime
  • Zeolite to reduce the risk of drying out - no other absorbents contain a zeolite.
  • Spherasorb is made of 3-4mm spheres processed to minimise potential dusting. Its uniform shape allows consistent bed packing, resulting in a more even flow of gases through the absorber and therefore, a very efficient absorption of CO2.

Independent tests have shown that Spherasorb’s unique formulation significantly reduces the risk of drying out and reaction as well as heat generation with volatile anaesthetic agents. Spherasorb exceeds the requirements of the United States Pharmacopia (USP).

    LoFloSorb® alkali hydroxide free  - Intersurgical

 
What is LoFloSorb?

A unique medical grade CO2 absorbent that contains no Alkali Hydroxide. LoFloSorb eliminates the risk associated with reactions with volatile anaesthetics.

Features and Benefits

  • LoFloSorb contains no Potassium Hydroxide and no Sodium Hydroxide. Therefore LoFLoSorb contains no aggressive chemicals that can react with the volatile anaesthetics.
  • LoFloSorb is made of 3-4mm spheres processed to minimise potential dusting. Its uniform shape allows consistent bed packing, resulting in a more even flow of gases through the absorber.
  • LoFloSorb offers a very stable green to violet colour change. This eliminates the potential for exhausted product being mistaken for fresh product.
Due to the absence of any Alkali Hydroxide LoFLoSorb does not last as long as standard soda limes or Spherasorb. LoFLoSorb meets all the requirements of the United States Pharacopia (USP).

Compound A is a breakdown product of Sevoflurane with dry absorbents. Independent tests have demonstrated that LoFloSorb eliminates the risk of reaction with Sevoflurane and other volatile anaesthetics.
