Infections tend to pose remote threat to people’s lives. We at BMT are fully aware of this and that is why we come up with technologies to ensure that your health is protected. It is important that patients, doctors and medical staffs in hospitals and other health care centers are certain that materials as well as instruments they use are sterile. This ensures that they are not susceptible to being attacked by infections.


Small steam sterilization


Under this type of sterilization, medical equipment and materials are exposed to saturated water steam at a high temperature, usually between 121oC to 134oC. The equipment is exposed to these conditions for a time period that ranges from 4-60 minutes.


Washer disinfectors


This offers a perfect solution for sterilizing sanitary instruments by means of washing and disinfecting. To achieve it, the temperature is maintained at 93 C for a given period of time. For products that are heat-sensitive, the method of thermo-chemical disinfection, together with lower temperatures, is used.


Hot air sterilizers


This is another method of dry heat sterilization and it is used to dry, heat and sterilize equipment of health services nature. It is not only quick but also very accurate. Under this method, hot dry convectional air is forced on the equipment to be sterilized. This is done at a specified temperature as well as sterilization exposure time. In most cases, the temperature applied under sterilization exposure time is 160C or 180C, and the exposure time is in the range of 30-60 minutes.
