Run time diagnostics provide an alarm log and historical record for any potential fault and can be done remotely through an optional but dedicated modem link. This time and date stamped data can be useful for performance management.

The chamber is usually the most expensive part of an autoclave. The typical lifespan of the apparatus as a whole is approximately 10 to 15 years under normal operating conditions. The control systems are generally the limiting factor in durability. If the chamber is still in good shape after the normal lifespan, then enormous savings can be obtained by simply upgrading those outdated control systems. This can allow the client to stay within budget while maintaining operable equipment.

ESTS specializes in options that can meet all of these potential customer needs, including financial considerations. For more details and additional links, please click on FindTheNeedle.
