The correct operation of the autoclave is an important premise to ensure the safety of the operator’s personal and property. The following is the standard operating procedure of the autoclave.
Press the “set” button to display the temperature setting. You can press the up and down arrow keys to set the desired value. In the same way, you can set the sterilization time.
Sterilization operation requirements of autoclave for different sterilized articles:
Place the sterilized items into the chamber in a neat arrangement. Note that the items should be placed at a lower height than the chamber so as not to block the top exhaust valve and cause danger.
Different sterilization methods and time are different, especially the sterilization of dressings. The dressings are installed in stainless steel vessels, and most users forget to open the ventilation holes in the dressing box, so that the color of the test paper cannot be reached every time for sterilization, resulting in the failure of sterilization.
The sterilization of some appliances is to use the cloth belt to tie the sterilization, after the sterilization, do not open the packaging of the cloth belt, otherwise it will be contaminated again.
When sterilizing the liquid and medium, it should be noted that after the sterilization, the autoclave must be cooled by natural exhaust. In case of rapid air discharge, the autoclave must be cooled sharply, so as to avoid the glass container bursting due to sudden temperature change, thus threatening the safety of the experimenter and causing pollution of the autoclave.
It is best to cover the sterilized goods with a layer of cloth, so that the sterilized goods will not be worried about the sterilization effect because of the humidity. Let the autoclave cool naturally as far as possible. Do not open the relief valve and exhaust valve above, so as not to cause the danger of high pressure gas hurting people.
It is recommended to open the relief valve and exhaust valve on top of the instrument once a month for autoclave so as not to cause rust lead to rust dead and bring danger.
