Sterilization is defined as the process by which any microorganism, including bacterial spores, is completely destroyed in a material or instrument. It can be achieved through the use of different methods, but the most commonly used in the field of dentistry, is wet heat sterilization, which is done by using an autoclave.

The gas autoclave is a type that uses the heat of steam to sterilize instruments. Most autoclaves use a mixture of water and compressed air to generate steam, although there are also some models that use nitrogen.

Types of Autoclaves a Lab may need

Horizontal Autoclave

This equipment is indispensable in laboratories, clinics and surgical centers, as it is a fast, compact, versatile sterilizer; It is designed with high technology and cost-effectiveness, while offering operational efficiency and easy maintenance; the advantages of the autoclave lie mainly in the detoxification and sterilization of the material used in surgical treatments or research material; its primary function is as a sterilizing agent by treating water vapor at high temperature to destroy any microorganism found in the material.

The applications of this equipment are so extensive, they are present in different areas and industries; therefore it is essential that the operator know how to handle it, know its parts and especially its maintenance, in this way extend the useful life of the equipment; the autoclave is necessary in any medical field, not only to treat laboratory material but also surgery, inspection or treatment.

Vertical Autoclave

  • The Plasma sterilizer takes H2O2 as sterilizing agent and form plasmatic state of H2O2 by electromagnetic field under low temperature. It combines both gaseous and plasmatic H2O2 to make sterilization for the items in chamber and decomposes the residual H2O2 after sterilization

    It is widely used in CSSD or other medical institute for the sterilization of electric wire and cable, optical glasses and glass lens, power equipment and batteries, endoscopes, catheter nonmetallic and other wet or heat sensitive instruments. Metal tubular instrument: inner diameterโ‰ฅ1mm, length โ‰ค500mm. Nonmetal tubular instrument: inner diameterโ‰ฅ1mm, length โ‰ค2000mm

     Low temperature sterilization

    The sterilization temperature is 50ยฑ5โ„ƒ which is much lower than steam sterilization. It is dry sterilization that has no harm on instrument. so it extends the device service life.

Autoclave in Operation

An autoclave is essentially a pressure vessel that uses steam pressure as a sterilizing agent. By increasing the pressure (above atmospheric pressure) the steam can reach higher temperatures. The additional pressure increases the boiling temperature of the water. Actually, about 20 ยฐ C more. This effectively increases its heat content and its ability to kill. This comes from its latent heat of evaporation.

The latest generation of autoclaves, known as "pre-vacuum generation", adds chamber preheating, steam injection, 3 pre-vacuum phases and closed-door vacuum drying: a technological "revolution" that changes parameters in the safety of professionals and patients, which is why they are known as drying autoclaves.
