With in the Basic Software Facility We Offer Up to 20 Standard Programs

The sterilizer is standardly equipped with “Preheating program” (134°C/1 min).


Standard, validated programs:

  • Unwrapped tools 134°C/4 min
  • Wrapped materials 134°C/7 min
  • Wrapped materials with intensive subsequent drying 134°C/7 min
  • Wrapped products of glass, rubber and plastics 121°C/20 min


Special programs with parameters according to the customer´s specifications:

Seven free programs adjustable at the producer for individual software facility according to specific needs of a consumer:

  • Prions 134 °C/60 min
  • Disinfection 105 °C/20min
  • Solutions in open bottles – 121 °C/20 min, spontaneous cooling
  • Arnold 100°C, 75°C
  • laparoscopy, alloplasts, plastic materials, optics, ...

Programs according to specific requirements must be validated at the customer’s! Top safety in solution sterilization – apart from standard working and safety procedures and processes is sterilization of solutions controlled as well as by three independent systems –temperature and pressure check in sterilization chamber, temperature check in reference bottle and minimal necessary time of sterilization cycle. Only when meeting all the cycles mentioned-above will the program declare itself to be complete. The system will then allow the chamber door to be opened.


Standard testing programs for routine testing:

  • Vacuum test – test of the chamber airtightness, duration of equalizing phase is 5 min, test duration of 10 min
  • Bowie&Dick test 134 – test of steam penetration, 134°C/3.5 min

Environmental features

The device meets all present ecologic requirements. It does not burden the working conditions and environment. The outer cover of the insulated jacket of the sterilization chamber is manufactured using galvanizér sheet with a quality insulation beneath. This substantially reduces the thermal losses

therefore saving electric energy. As standard the equipment has a built-in device which saves up to 15% of the water requirements consumed by the vacuum pump. A uniquely divided double chamber jacket with a steam system allows pressurization of the sterilization chamber, this reduces the demi-water consumption by approximetly 20%. The steam generator is controlled by an automatic microprocessor system and as a standard it is equipped with a clarifying device.

In production we monitor the quality of the materials ensuring a long operational life of the device.

The equipment is fitted with additional components that cool the waste water to a pre-set temperature before it enters the drainage systems. The production of the equipment and

its process cycles are all based on environmentally friendly methods.

All the substantial parts of the unit and packaging are recycled.

The unit is made up of 95% steel, 4% of other materials, 1% electric material and plastics. Ecologic liquidation is performed after the disassembling by the authorized person in accordance with EU regulation, which meets the Regulation WEEE (Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment).
