VOS - Halton Vita OR Space

Halton Vita OR Space

Halton Vita OR Space is an airflow solution which provides the highest required air cleanliness for the ultraclean operations in the entire operating space. This unique controlled-dilution innovation provides hygienic conditions and safety without compromising on comfort and freedom to use the whole room.

Halton Vita OR Space is a complete operating room ventilation solution for ultraclean operating environments. The solution is based on the controlled dilution principle, which provides the required air cleanliness and recovery time for the whole operating space. The system is ideal for applications where comfortable conditions, energy efficiency and operational efficiency in the way of flexible positioning of staff and instrument tables are important.

The solution complies with the cleanliness requirements of the ISO standards for cleanrooms. Halton Vita OR Space is available in two versions:

  • Halton Vita OR Space 5, for ultraclean operating environments
  • Halton Vita OR Space 7, for clean air operating environments

The Halton Vita OR Space 5 and 7 solutions are fully functional systems consisting of supply and exhaust air units and dampers, an intelligent air cleanliness and ventilation management system, a recirculating air-handling unit and verification services.


Operating principle

In the controlled dilution principle HEPA-filtered air is introduced into the room in a carefully controlled manner, effectively displacing and diluting air impurities.

The circumferential supply airflow from the supply air unit is directed partly towards the operating area and partly towards the room periphery. The inward supply airflow displaces the contamination generated in the operating area and prevents the intrusion of the outward supply airflow into the centre. The fine-tuning of the throw pattern is carried out by Halton.


Comfort

The airflow pattern is adjustable. This ensures optimal thermal conditions and a low noise level for the patient and medical team.

As the air is mixed effectively, the supply air temperature can be kept slightly colder or warmer than the room temperature. Thus no separate heating systems are required for the space. Halton Vita OR Space solution is the only solution where the room temperature can be raised by the staff during the operation without impacting the microbial cleanliness level.

The good aerodynamic design of the supply air unit enables exceptionally low sound pressure levels.


Flexibility

As the required cleanliness level is obtained for the whole operating space, free positioning is enabled for the medical team and instruments. This means not only a more effective use of the space, but also increased safety as the risk of contamination from within the space is minimised. Therefore staff can focus on the operation and move the surgical lamps and instrument trolleys as needed during the operation.


Energy efficiency

The demand-based and highly automated Halton VMS air cleanliness and ventilation management system adjusts the airflow according to actual usage and the microbial load, with a short recovery time of the room conditions and substantial energy savings as a result.

The airflow rate can be reduced with fewer people present. For example, when the number of people is reduced by 50%, the recirculation airflow rate can also be reduced by 50%. This provides substantial energy savings compared to if the airflow rate was kept at the required maximum level the whole time. Fast recovery time cuts costs further by increasing the utilisation rate of the operating room.


Usability and reliability

The Halton VMS air cleanliness and ventilation management system provides reliable operation and safe conditions with a user-friendly control system. End-user functionality is simplified and optimised to guarantee safety at all times. The system has a touch panel which includes an easy adjustment of airflow, temperature and humidity settings.

Halton with its turnkey solutions and end-to-end services is a trusted partner throughout the lifecycle of the building. Services include Halton Design Studio for verifying your design, Halton Tune for installing and fine-tuning the system, and Halton Life Cycle for ensuring that the design criteria are met in the real operating environment.
