Sterilization is a term that refers to any procedure, which removes all forms of bacteria present on the surface that are present in a fluid or medication or in a compound. It can be achieved by using the ideal combination of chemicals, high pressure, heat and filtration. A popular sterilizer available in the market is an autoclave. It is a device used for sterilizing equipments by putting them under high-pressure saturated steam for about 20 minutes. However, this will depend on the load and size of the contents.
The autoclaves are used in the fields of medicine, microbiology, dentistry, chiropody and mycology. They differ in function and size depending on the media that needs to be sterilized. Autoclaves are also used for curing composites and the rubber vulcanization. The high pressure and heat which autoclaves allow, ensure that the ideal physical properties are retained. Medica Instrument Mfg Co manufactures different types of autoclaves – vertical, fully automatic Autoclave and double wall.
