132°C and 135°C Validated Cycles

Medical devices are becoming more complex and now the manufacturer’s written instructions are becoming more differentiated. The 433/533HC-E Series Steam Sterilizers are validated with pre-vacuum and gravity sterilization cycles at 132°C (270°F) and 135°C (275°F). Preprogrammed cycles include gravity cycles and pre-vacuum cycles for immediate-use steam sterilization (IUSS). This saves you time programming custom cycles and self-validating sterilization efficacy.*

*Deviation from pre-programmed cycle parameters requires user validation

  • Chamber, door, and jacket material are constructed of 316L stainless steel.
  • The interior chamber finish is polished to a high luster finish.
  • All pressure vessel construction meets ASME code requirements for working pressures up to 45 psig (310 kPa).
  • The gasket ring holds a continuous, one-piece silicone gasket, 0.63” (16 mm) in diameter.
  • The body assembly is thermally insulated with 1.5” fiberglass insulation and is double thick between the jacket “U” channels.
  • A steam baffle is provided to prevent condensation from wetting the load.
  • An extra threaded opening permits passage of thermocouple leads to monitor interior and load temperatures.
  • Steam connection to the chamber and jacket is 316L stainless steel material.
  • A manual gasket retract valve is provided for emergency chamber access.
  • When rack and shelves are supplied, shelf adjustments will be approximately every 2.5” (63.5 mm).
  • Individual rack supports and shelves are easy to remove for cleaning.

VERTI-GLIDE DOOR

  • The vertical sliding door is counterbalanced for ease of operation.
  • When open, it is totally out of the way, allowing safe and complete access to the chamber.
  • Opening or closing the manual door requires only gentle upward or downward hand pressure.

Optional Power Door

  • Operated by a footswitch, and the door will stop automatically if an obstruction is encountered.
  • If the footswitch is actuated while the door is opening or closing, the direction will be reversed.
  • The Power Door can be opened or closed manually.

Beginning of the Cycle

  • Steam pressure behind the gasket automatically seals the door and retracts automatically at the end of the cycle.
  • Sealing is positive and consistent.
  • The gasket is recessed for added protection and long life.
  • Once the cycle begins and the chamber is pressurized, the door cannot be opened.
  • A safety switch prevents steam from entering the chamber when the door is not in the sealed position.
  • The door is insulated with fiberglass insulation and covered with a stainless steel panel.

PANELING

  • The front paneling is constructed of nominal 0.050” (1.27 mm) No.3 brushed finished stainless steel and is hinged for easy access to components, the manual gasket retract valve and, if specified, the electric steam boiler.
  • The trim panels are built-in to fit within a recessed wall or optional cabinet.
  • When specified, the cabinet model will be made of the same material.

OPTIONAL – INTEGRAL STEAM BOILER

  • The carbon steel or 304L stainless steel steam boiler will have a 30 kW capacity at standard 3-phase voltages and include an automatic fill valve to ensure the correct water
    level at all times.
  • The unit includes ASME CSD-1 low water cut-off safety device.
  • The sterilizer control on/off switch controls the boiler control power (115V).
  • The steam boiler is automatically controlled to generate and maintain a supply of steam to the sterilizer at a minimum of 40 psig (3.72 Bar).

STANDARD SAFETY FEATURES

  • Steam Interlock Door Switch
    • Prevents steam from entering the chamber when the door is not sealed.
  • Steam Safety Valve(s)
    • There are Steam Safety Relief valve(s) which ensures that the pressure in the chamber and or jacket do not over-pressurize.
  • Door Obstruction Shut-off
    • If the automatic door encounters an obstacle, a safety clutch stops the door movement and after a short time-out, the motor is shut down.
  • Analog Chamber Gauges
    • Two needle-style gauges give real-time pressure readings in the chamber and jacket even in the event of micro-computer control system outage.
  • Parameter Check
    • The control system verifies all user-programmed cycle parameters against time/temperature sterility assurance level recommendations.
    • A warning appears if the user’s attempt to program a cycle beyond recommended parameters.
  • Supervisor Password
    • A supervisor password is required to change cycle names or parameters.
  • Abort Alert
    • Aborted cycles result in a warning message that requires user intervention before the chamber can be reopened.
  • Gasket Retract Valve
    • In the event, emergency access to the chamber becomes necessary the gasket may be retracted manually.
  • Door Safety Baffle
    • In the unlikely event of a catastrophic door failure, the gasket will blow out and a baffle at the chamber mouth directs steam away from areas where users might be working.
  • Heat Guards and Insulation
    • Insulation and heat guards are built-in on all surfaces where users routinely come into contact, particularly near the door and chamber openings.
  • Water Alarm
    • The chamber drain is continuously monitored for the presence of water during a cycle.
    • High water levels in the drain that cannot be corrected automatically result in an audible alert.
  • Temperature of the Discharge Water
    • Controlled by RTD to be less than 140°F (60°C).
    • This device also conserves water by cooling the drain effluent only when needed.

Automatic Utilities Control Feature

  • Provides a seven-day timer for programmed startup and shutdown of the sterilizer.
  • When activated, this program shuts OFF water and steam valves to the sterilizer (including the optional steam boiler) to conserve energy.
