The highest safety for sterilization of solutions

Besides the standard operation and safety procedures and processes, the sterilization of solutions is monitored also by three independent systems – chamber temperature and pressure check, temperature in the reference bottle check and the minimum time necessary for the sterilization cycle check. Only if the conditions of all three mentioned processes are met, the program is declared as fi nished and the system allows to open the chamber door.

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 80 % 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).
