Class B Pre Post Vac Sterilizers
Class B autoclave sterilizers are high performance sterilizers, with the highest possible safety standards. Pre/Post vacuum sterilizers draw air from the chamber prior to the cycle.
The advantages of a pre/post-vacuum sterilizer are as follows:
- Removal of residual air from packs and porous load and most kinds of tubes (rubber, plastic etc.) by vacuum during the first stage of the cycle.
- More efficient steam penetration into the load; assuring effective sterilization.
- Improved temperature uniformity throughout the chamber.
- Better drying of materials due to the vacuum achieved in the chamber during the drying cycle.
Duraline Systems recommends the Tuttnauer Elara 11 or the Scican Bravo chamber autoclaves; both FDA-approved table-top sterilizers. The next size up for a Class B autoclave is the Tuttnauer 5075HSG, or the Steris-Amsco autoclaves.
