The Serres Nemo should be installed in a disposal area near the operating rooms where it can be connected to cold water, plumbing and electricity. It is installed on the floor on its own adjustable feet.
The Serres Nemo has a hose with an FHT 3/4″ connection for connecting to the water supply and a 1.5″ male push-fit connector for connecting it to the sewerage system. Only the set of hoses supplied with the device can be used to connect. The water coming into the Serres Nemo is controlled with a solenoid valve. If local regulations require a manual shut-off valve in the water connection, the customer must ensure that it is in place before installing the Serres Nemo.
The Serres Nemo has a cord with a plug that can be installed directly into an earthed wall socket (120V / 60 Hz). To ensure electrical safety, it must not be connected to the mains current with an extension cord. The electrical connection must be in a visible and easily accessible location.
If necessary, the Serres Nemo can be cleaned by wiping it with a cleaning agent intended for disinfecting healthcare devices. The emptying chamber of the device is cleaned daily by running a program with a washing tray. A washing tray is placed into the Serres Nemo with detergent used to clean the device’s emptying container. Do not use abrasive detergents or solvents to clean the Serres Nemo.
