Sterilization is processed that eliminates the microorganisms and other tiny particles that are presented on the surface of a product. This process of sterilization is performed mainly in biomedical products manufacturing industries and in hospitals to sterilize medical equipment and tools. There is a great requirement of the highly sterilized tool and instruments in hospitals to perform operations and treatments. The medical products manufacturing industries require highly effective testing equipments that can perform the operation of sterilization efficiently and effectively. If the process of sterilization is not performed efficiently and in a proper and organized manner, it can create major defect to perform the operation efficiently. Hence, there is a requirement of proper testing instruments that are used to perform sterilization in a proper way. Usually, there is various testing equipment that are used to perform the process of sterilization namely, Hot Air Oven Instruments and Autoclaves
Autoclave – The widely used testing instrument that are used to perform the process of sterilization is Autoclave. The testing instrument is best enough to create highly pressurized and heated steam for sterilization. It is a closed chamber which is used to create a very high level of pressurized steam for the purpose of sterilization. The testing device is provided with a pressure gauge and a digital display to monitor accurately the pressure which is created inside the chamber so that excessive pressure can be avoided easily. The products that need to be sterilized are kept inside the chamber at a highly heated steam for a period of at least 15 to 20 minutes so that it can be sterilized efficiently. These autoclaves testing instruments are widely used in Rubber industries to perform the process of vulcanization, in medical tools manufacturing industries to sterilize the devices and tools and also to cure the coatings of the coated substrates, etc.
Laboratory Hot air oven – Another instrument which is widely used to sterilize the products is Hot Air Oven. It is the best and highly safest instrument to perform the process of sterilization. The instrument uses dry air to create the high temperature inside the chamber that sterilize the instruments efficiently. The testing device is duly fitted with a heated coil along with the fan that helps to maintain a uniform temperature inside the testing cabinet. It is a small size testing instrument that can perform the test procedure of sterilization effectively and efficiently. It is the highly safest and suitable means to perform the process of sterilization as compared to the Autoclaves.
