Autoclave solutions are sterilization equipment used in most healthcare facilities to sterilize equipment.
Different sterilization methods, processes as well as equipment are used by these heath facilities to ensure infection control and hygiene standards are maintained.
However, affordable Autoclave Solutions are central to providing best care for patients and controlling infection efficiently in urban healthcare facilities.
Autoclave sterilizers (both high temperature and pressure steam sterilizers) as well as plasma sterilizers (low temperature H2O2 sterilizers) can be used to provide consistent, high quality sterilization results.
Crown Healthcare (C.H.M.S Limited), a West African supplier of quality autoclave solutions from Tuttnauer (a global leader in autoclave technology) offers a range of affordable autoclave solutions.
Tuttnauer’s global experience has earned it a reputation as an expert on worldwide Standards and Quality considerations.
General Applications of Autoclaves
Autoclave chambers sterilize medical, pharmaceutical or laboratory instruments by heating them above boiling point.
Most clinics have tabletop autoclaves, similar in size to microwave ovens.
Hospitals and large health facilities use large autoclaves, also called horizontal autoclaves.
These autoclaves are usually located in the the Central Sterile Services Department CSSD) and can process numerous surgical instruments in a single sterilization cycle, meeting the ongoing demand for sterile equipment in operating rooms and emergency wards.
Generally, autoclave solutions find application in the following areas;
- Medical autoclaves
- Dental autoclaves
- Laboratory autoclaves
- Pharmaceutical autoclaves
Steam is the autoclave’s sterilization agent.
When it comes to transferring large quantities of energy to an object requiring sterilization, nothing’s more powerful than steam.
After all, steam engines propel ships and trains. Even the Titanic was powered by steam.
Two factors that determine the quality of steam in an autoclave are:
- the level of non-condensable gases
- the moisture level
These two parameters are critical for proper autoclave functioning and the sterilization process as a whole.
The optimal composition of steam within an autoclave is 3% liquid and 97% gas.
Any change in the percentage of moisture increases or decreases sterilization time.
In practice, sterilization time is calculated according to optimum steam conditions and steam’s ability to transfer energy to the non-sterile load prior to sterilization.
After all, one of the most important benefits of steam autoclave sterilization is that it requires considerably less time and heat than a dry heat sterilizer, due to steam’s capacity to transfer energy.
