Anesthesia Gas Scavenging System

Actively removes vented anaesthetic gas mixtures during medical procedures.

or more information

When patients are administered anaesthetic gas, its molecules escape into the room and can impact the performance of medical teams. We provide reliable AGSS systems to ensure the safety of your patients and staff.

Anaesthetic gas scavenging systems prevent medical staff from inhaling the anaesthetic gas mixtures administered to patients during surgery.

AGSS is an efficient and highly reliable gas removal vacuum system suited for breathing and ventilation medical systems. Its role is to remove anaesthetic gas mixtures from operating rooms and other areas in medical facilities that have gas terminal units.

Built in Canada and supported by our national technical service team, our AGSS systems incorporate state-of-the-art controls and industry leading pumps that operate contact-free: neither oil nor water is needed for the compression process.

Unparalleled experience

Over 1000 medical and vacuum source systems installed in hospitals across Canada. Air Liquide Healthcare works exclusively with Busch Vacuum Technics, the top supplier of medical vacuum pump systems in North America.

Key features

  • User-friendly touchscreen operator interface

  • Connectivity for alarm event logging and trend graphs/information

  • Available for purchase, rent-to-own, or on a monthly facility fee basis

  • Made in Canada and supported by our national service network

The compact design of Mink MM vacuum pumps results in small external pump dimensions. These vacuum pumps are equipped with an efficient silencer.

The rotary claw principle has already been used successfully for many years. Robust design and high quality, guarantee high operating reliability and long life span.

The very high efficiency of the vacuum pumps compared with conventional pumps results in considerable energy savings. Costs are further decreased through reduced down time and savings on wearing parts and operating fluids.

Because of the non-touching operation of the pump, no wear takes place. No maintenance work such as checking or replacing wearing parts. For example, no replacement of carbon vanes necessary.
