STERIMAT - detailed description

STERIMAT, a steam sterilizer with a chamber volume of 20 liters, represents a completely new generation of small steam sterilizers that comply, without exception, with the requirements of standards (EN 13060 for Class B) and operating staff. STERIMAT sterilizers are suitable for the sterilization of all instruments, materials, textile, rubber and plastics that are meant to be sterilized by steam when it comes to health services, veterinary clinics and laboratories. Thanks to how small they are, their top quality and wide range of use, STERIMAT units are suitable for use especially in the field of dentistry, where top quality, speed, reliability and the highest level of sterilization safety are required.

 

A two microprocessor control system (Master-Slave) and double pressure and heat sensors make up a separate sterilization cycle control and record system and it thereby secures the highest possible safety, accurate regulation and short batch times.

 

 

Basic features

  • Small steam sterilizer
  • Quick, powerful, smart and exceptional
  • Saves space and consumption of media
  • Fractional multiple evacuation
  • Automatic door control
  • Touch display offers top comfort control of the unit and provides comprehensive information about each phase of the on-going process
  • A graphic printer or computer can be connected to the unit to print, assess and archive a detailed report on each sterilization cycle (RS 232 interface)
  • Short delivery terms

 

Basic technical data

  • Chamber volume: 20 liters
  • Temperature range: From 105°C to 134°C
  • Built-in separate full-scope steam generator
  • Powerful air pump – perfect drying
  • two microprocessor control system (Master-Slave)
  • Touch display for comfort control
  • 10 user programs
  • Separate control and cycle registration system
  • Autonomous design or feeding by de-mineralized water from water works firmly connected to a  water distribution network
  • Separate distilled and used water tanks
  • Enables testing and validation according to EN ISO 17665-1:06

 

Basic design elements

The pressure chamber, door panel and steam generator are made out of first-rate stainless steel (ČSN 17 347, DIN 1.4571, AISI 316 Ti). In order to save energy and minimize heat radiation, the chamber is perfectly insulated with ecological insulating material. Sensors, valves, the powerful air pump and other important design elements are manufactured by leading world producers. The unit is fitted with a pump to fill the distilled water supply tank and it does not need to be connected to water discharge piping.

Right of change of construction and design reserved.

 

Saves time and water consumption and provides for comfortable operation

  • Compact dimensions and low weight
  • Optimal effective output
  • Quick steam generation system
  • Programs with fractional pre-vacuum and multiphase drying with sterilization exposure time ranging from 4 to 60 minutes
  • Several sterilization programs that can be selected depending on the type of sterilized material
  • Three special testing programs
  • The switching-on and starting of the unit program can be time-delayed
  • Once a cycle has finished – automatic 1 hour tempered chamber
  • Stand-by function – automatic pre-heating phase, keeps the temperature in the sterilization chamber at least 80°C for 1 hour after the unit has been switched on and after the cycle has finished.

 

Ergonomics and quality at the highest level

  • Sterilization chamber with an electrically heated jacket and a separate steam generator made out of first-rate stainless steel (DIN 1.4571, AISI 316Ti)
  • Automatic door closure
  • Touch display (graphic LCD)
  • Heat is removed away from the sterilizer with the help of a powerful cooling system that does not need to be connected to a water source
  • Automatic microprocessor control through two microprocessors
  • Vacuum drying multiple phase system with forced ventilation
  • Built-in separate tanks (6.5 liters) for demi-water and waste water big enough for at least 5 sterilization cycles with maximum possible load
  • Maximum / minimum water level indication
  • Batch counter
  • RS 232 interface; an external printer can be connected for documentation of sterilization processes; Printer Archive communication data for data storage
  • The configuration of sterilization program parameters can be changed with software

 

Safety equipment

  • two microprocessor control system (Master-Slave) of sterilization
  • Mechanical and electric door blocking system with micro-switches
  • if the program is turned off, the system will automatically go into safe mode
  • Warning and error reporting is controlled by a microprocessor
  • Anti-bacterial filter safely secures the quality of chamber aeration after the under-pressure cooling phase
  • Safety valve protection against surpassing maximum operation over-pressure
  • Thermal fuse protection against non-permitted overheating of the electrical heating of the jacket of the sterilization chamber
  • Thermal fuse protection against non-permitted operation of the steam generator without water

 

Conformity with European standards

  • The unit complies with the technical and legislative regulations of the Czech Republic and the EU – Council Directive 93/42/EEC, the EN 13060 standard for small steam sterilizers, and others.
