The advantages of autoclaves are quickly highlighted and have become an essential part of every clinic and hospital.

The autoclave is used for the sterilization of surgical equipment, laboratory instruments, pharmaceutical items and other materials. It can sterilize solids, liquids, hollows, and instruments of various shapes and sizes. Autoclaves differ by size, shape, and functionality. A very basic autoclave looks like a pressure cooker; Both use steam power to kill bacteria, spores, and germs which are resistant to boiling water and powerful detergents.

How does an Autoclave Work?

Autoclaves are commonly used in medical institutions for the sterilization of medical devices. Items that are sterilized are placed in a pressure vessel, which is usually referred to as a chamber.

Quality steam is essential for the success of the autoclave sterilization process. The steam for sterilization must be 97% steam (vapor) and 3% moisture (liquid water). This ratio is recommended for the most efficient heat transfer. When the moisture content of the vapor is below 3%, the steam is described as superheated (or dry). The superheated steam is too dry for efficient heat transfer and it has been shown to be ineffective for steam sterilization.
