Medical Pulp Macerators

Designed to pulverise and dispose of both single-use medical pulp containers and human waste, DDC Dolphin’s range of Pulpmatic bedpan macerators are the sluice room equipment of choice for thousands of healthcare facilities around the world.  

Our range of pulp macerators have been designed to provide you with a fast and safe human waste disposal solution whilst delivering passive safety measures such as hands-free operation and antimicrobial surfaces to minimise the risk of infection.

With healthcare associated infections (HCAIs) an ever-present threat in healthcare facilities, and the seemingly endless demands on hospital and care home budgets, paper pulp is considered to be a clean and highly cost-effective solution.

Not only is it cost-effective, but using single-use pulp products to dispose of potentially hazardous human waste also reduces the risk of cross-contamination, as the waste containers are not used by multiple patients or moved from ward to ward. 

We are very proud to have been selected as an NHS preferred supplier for both hospital macerators themselves and for the service, maintenance and validation of all brands of macerators in hospital sluice rooms throughout the UK. No matter what your macerator requirement is, DDC Dolphin can help.

Care homes all around the world trust us with their infection prevention solutions, providing them with sluice room machinery and servicing.


DDC Dolphin Pulpmatic Ultima Medical Pulp Bedpan Macerator Loading With Pulp Bedpan


DDC Dolphin Pulpmatic Uno Medical Pulp Bedpan Macerator Lid Closed

Using a medical pulp macerator is quick and easy.

The DDC Dolphin Pulpmatic Uno and Pulpmatic Ultima bedpan macerators are opened and closed using a hands-free optical sensor or foot cup/plate – so your staff never need to touch the machine with their hands and risk spreading infection.

Our new Pulpmatic Eco+ features the next generation of hands-free technology, and is the most economical macerator on the market.

Once opened, the pulp container along with its contents can be placed inside the macerator without the need to wash or dispose of items elsewhere. The cycle can be programmed to start automatically once the lid is closed and will be complete in as little as 65 seconds – giving your staff much more time to care for your patients or care home residents.  

The medical pulp container and its contents are then then quickly and effectively pulverised into tiny particles using advanced blade technology and discharged into the main sewage system. A steady flow of water to the drain removes all waste and prevents blockages and residue build-up in the pipes.
