Neptune 3 A complete solution for surgical fluid suction and smoke evacuation
Neptune 3 contains SealShut technology which enables a constantly closed system during all points of use. In addition, the internal HEPA and ULPA filters provide excellent filtration efficiency.1 Its closed system locks away suctioned fluids during cases, manifold changes, docking and transport; reducing exposure and spills.
Locks away Biohazards
Neptune collects, transports and disposes of surgical waste fluid
Key benefits and features
SealShut technology, locks away suctioned biohazards
(A) Provides 3 layers of protection to create a constantly closed system
1 - Twist seal inside manifold port
Twisting and removal of the manifold pivots the inlet cover which seals the canister
2 - Drip reduction valve in disposablemanifold
Located in the back of the manifold, the drip reduction valve automatically closes as the manifold is removed
3 - Backflow prevention valves insidemanifold
Backflow prevention valves stop captured fluids from leaving the manifold during use and disposal
HEPA and ULPA filters
HEPA and ULPA filters provide excellent filtration efficiency.
(B) HEPA and ULPA Filters
Neptune 3 contains a HEPA filter which filters the air suctioned during collection of surgical fluid with a filtration performance 99.97% efficiency at 0.3 microns1
Neptune 3 contains an ULPA filter to filter particles in surgical smoke with a filtration performance of 99.999% efficiency at 0.1 microns1
Capture surgical smoke at the source
“I literally could not breathe.”
- Dr. Tony Hedley -
Up to 77% of the particles in surgical smoke are not adequately filtered out by standard surgical masks.5
