Q – What does the code “PF” mean when it comes up on the temperature screen.
A – It means ’Power Fail Code’.   You need to unplug the sterilizer and plug it back in order to reset.

This unit needs to be cleaned out by a mixer of warm water, mild soap, cup of white vinegar and if need be a plastic scrubby.  That scrubby is only used with caution if there is scale build up In the bottom.  This cleaning procedure is to be performed every night.

A Canadian hospital  was not able to sterilize their instruments due to rust-colored stains found surrounding the surgical tools they were using. It was detected that the steam which was generated by two huge boilers (which they heat hospital and provide heat for the sterilizers) were the cause.

A few factors could have caused staining:

1) The autoclave’s steam trap, which collects excess steam, failed, which sent moisture into the sterilizer.
2) Ironically, laundry detergent is a culprit. The surgical tools are wrapped in clean linen; if the detergent hasn’t been 100-per-cent rinsed, it can cause a teatype stain when subjected to the temperatures and pressure in the autoclave.
3) The boiler’s chemicals, designed to prevent corrosion, can carry over into the steam and cause staining.

buy a used autoclaveIn this economy, everyone is looking to save money when they can. You might be wondering if it’s a good idea to buy a used autoclave. Remanufactured autoclaves can be a great way to save money, but proper precautions must be taken.

If you would like to buy a used autoclave, make sure you contact a reliable source that has been in the sterilizer business for a long time. The experts at Sterilizers.com can help you buy a used autoclave that is safe and reliable. If you’re in the market for a remanufactured autoclave, here are some tips to keep in mind. (more…)

I’m really thrilled to announce that Alfa Medical (Sterilizers.com) as of November 26th 2013, became the North America service center for the the following Pelton Crane products: Sentry, OCM, OCR, Magnaclave, Validators, and all the way to the Delta Q 8 and Delta Q 10 lines.  The markets which were approved for are all the none dental (ie Medical, Veterinarian, Laboratory, manufacturing facilities and again, all none dental).

sterilizing wasteMany people do not think about using an autoclave for sterilizing waste. An autoclave can be used to sterilize hazardous waste so that it can be thrown out with the normal garbage. Since hazardous waste disposal is very expensive, waste sterilization is a great way to save money.

If you haven’t been using an autoclave to sterilize hazardous waste, it’s not too late to start. So, which autoclave is best for sterilizing waste? (more…)

Question to Sterilizers.com chief trouble shooter:

What might remove burnt char from bottom of a Tuttnauer.  Green fluid leaked after cleaning and burnt onto bottom of chamber.  Chamber Brite not doing trick.

If there are  melted plastic, chamber-brite will not do much. Make sure the dry cycle is not used. This may take a few cleanings.

It can be hard to clean unless you use an acid.

They will have to run another cycle or two using chamber-brite.
1.       They can run a ½ package for no more than 30 minutes @250-260 degrees.
2.        Vent chamber and empty reservoir, refill with fresh water.
3.        While chamber is still slightly warm, use fine scotch-brite or a course side of a dish washing sponge and rub left to
right in the chamber (with the grain)
4.       Wipe out chamber
5.       Run another clean cycle
6.       Do #2 again
7.       Do #3 again
8.       Do # 4 again
