The steam used in different processes of sterilization is not always the same. Indeed, according to the process of sterilization used, the steam should have some specific characteristics in order to comply with the sterilization directive requirements.
What are the different types of steam? Which steam has to be used according the process of sterilization?
Our last design of superheated water sterilizer (MODEL LPS121270) has been finished, and the equipment has been sent to the customer site. The design, installation and qualification of a superheated water autoclave for one of our pharmaceutical customers, has been achieved with success. It has been a customized project performed by RSD Engineering Solutions SL and Inoxtorres SL, to sterilize bottles containing liquid.
Industries are increasingly committed to the protection of the environment and in most cases they try to consider it as one of their priorities.
Companies that design and manufacture Ethylene Oxide (ETO) sterilization autoclaves can also propose the best technologies to their customers for ethylene oxide elimination. ETO is a very effective gas as it has sterilization property, but being harmful for the environment; that’s why it is required to use either a Scrubber or Catalytic System.
All the information about these 2 technologies to have the best ethylene oxide (ETO) sterilization facility respecting the environment.
The steam sterilization or also known as Saturated Pure steam sterilization is the most used sterilization process for materials that resist high temperature and humidity (Stainless steel instruments, rubber, glassware…). It is the most reliable and easiest method to handle for this kind of products (quite used in hospitality industry).
The combined action of water vapor and temperature causes the destruction of microorganisms present on the products to be sterilized. The sterilizer works according to a sterilization cycle which is composed of several phases. The quality of the sterilization depends basically on the sterilization cycle.
What are the phases of a typical sterilization cycle? What are utilities in a steam sterilization? What are the technologies for a correct operation?
