New Bayne Cart Lifters Designed to Protect Medical Employees


Greenville, S.C. (Feb. 12, 2009) — Bayne Premium Lift Systems introduces a line of cart lifters designed to help medical facility employees avoid infection, disease and injury caused by bio-hazardous waste disposal. The lifters in the C/I Medical Waste series make it possible for employees to load waste into an incinerator, autoclave or Rotoclave® without coming into contact with the waste itself. The lifters eliminate the need for employees to physically lift and dump waste containers, also reducing the risk of injury.

Using a C/I Medical Waste lifter, an employee needs only to wheel the refuse container to the lifter and press the “up” button. The lifter then automatically holds the cart to the lift plate, picks it up and dumps it. With a press of the “down” button, the cart is automatically returned to the lowered position. The lifters can be equipped with casters for mobile use or be installed directly in front of the disposal device into which they will empty carts.

“The Bayne C/I Medical Waste series of lifters offers a superior solution for transferring medical waste,” says Doug Pheffer, Bayne general manager. “Not only do the lifters protect employees’ backs, their integrated stainless steel chutes also help avoid unwanted medical waste spillage.”

There are three models in the C/I Medical Waste series, to accommodate domestic-style two-bar carts, European style carts and mobile trucks with bottom fork pockets. Lift capacity ranges from 400 lbs. to 1,000 lbs. Self-lubricating composite bearings at all pivot points prevent the need for greasing, and reduce maintenance time and expense. Each lifter is powder-coated to provide the most durable finish and is backed by the industry’s best one-year warranty.

Bayne also offers an extensive line of lifters for use in general refuse disposal. These lifters are for use on loading docks or with trash compactors and are also available in mobile or permanent mount configurations.
