Our solutions for the healthcare industry
Lubron has a first-class reputation for providing fully compliant water treatment solutions for hospitals, pathology laboratories, and the pharmaceutical industry, from clinical decontamination and the water used in renal dialysis, to heating and chilled water systems. The fact that water treatment systems for these sectors must be technically advanced, and utterly reliable, to protect human life, and to meet exacting standards is forefront in Lubron’s delivery.
Treatment for renal conditions will always be a major requirement for any modern healthcare service. Renal dialysis water requirements are well established and Lubron’s technical team bring high levels of expertise and experience to system design, supply, aftercare support and maintenance of well engineered water purification systems.

Known for its excellent service, Lubron’s maintenance provision for our customers is world-class. Our extensive service network provides 24/7 support for our clients.
Virus and bacteria control
Air humidication systems and equipment represent a potential source of transmission of viruses and bacteria, including legionella. By using demineralised water to sterilise equipment, health risks can be negated. Lubron’s water treatment specialists understand the challenges, have extensive knowledge of legislation and regulations and can specify the appropriate technology to deliver the best performance for every environment.
Demineralised and purified water
Tap water in the UK includes a number of components that have an impact on, for example, conductivity. Quality standards in laboratories and pharmacies are naturally very high, as they are for cleaning equipment in the CSSD (Central Sterile Services Department). With the right water treatment, Lubron provides demineralised water of the highest quality for each specific application.
Energy efficiency – sustainable and environmentally friendly
Improving energy efficiency is key to any organisation, and particularly in healthcare. Heating costs represent a significant share of energy consumption in healthcare. A sustainable building relies on efficient cooling and heating systems. With the correct water treatment, heat transfer can remain optimal for longer, resulting in fiscal savings and a reduced carbon footprint.
Depending on water quality requirements, a number of techniques can be applied in the clinical and healthcare sector.
Water purity plays an important role here too, in helping to limit the risk from air and water borne infections. Lubron has invested in the research and development of specially designed units which deliver the finely controlled humidification, so important in providing the right environment in theatres, wards and offices across healthcare facilities.
The right water softening solution can eliminate scale deposits in equipment. Additionally, in cooling and boiler systems, the service life and efficiency of equipment can be significantly extended by preventing corrosion and scale deposits.Water softening
Filtration occurs in nature when rain water passes between many layers of sand and gravel. The gravel and sand act as a filter to collect solid particles and therefore leave the water pure. This process has been adapted to achieve the same effect in industry and is particularly useful in healthcare, manufacturing and domestic circumstances.Filtration
Salts and minerals can be found in pipes and in spring water. In order to treat this issue, water is desalted, a process also referred to as demineralisation, using reverse osmosis (RO). To achieve puried water, the RO water receives a secondary treatment with electro-deionisation (EDI).Demineralisation
Maintaining compliance with HTM 04-01 is challenging for any healthcare management team; Lubron provides quality solutions that represent long-term reliability and value for money to over 60% of the UK’s hospitals.
