an air tube service: How does it work?

Hospital environments are known to be dynamic, run by fast-paced personnel with the best patient care in mind. Therefore, in order to keep up with this environment, tube transportation systems need to be, as mentioned above: reliable, safe and quick. But how does the tube system work?

  1. First of all, a pneumatic tube system consists of a network of tubes connected via several stations such as transfer- or receivingstations.
  2. At these stations several carriers are made available for all hospital staff, such as doctors or nurses. These carriers can be used to send and receive clinical samples securely, efficient noiseless and above all accurate.
  3. These carriers are located at the stations, which are situated in carefully chosen, strategic locations inside the medical center, for example: the laboratory, pharmacy, surgery room or clinic.

For example: When a nurse has a clinical sample she wants to send to the doctor who is on call, two floors up. The nurse places the specimen inside the carrier and places the carrier inside the sending station. Next, the nurse enters the desired location of the clinical sampling and presses send. Now the fully automated tube system takes over: using air to transport the carrier all the way up to the 4th floor in a matter of seconds. Saving the nurse a trip to the 4th floor while minimizing the risk of contamination of the samples.
