Chamber Construction

Sterivap sterilizers are equipped with jacketed, rectangular chambers made entirely of 316L stainless steel for superior durability. The chamber is constructed in accordance with ASME Section VIII, Division 1, for unfired pressure vessels and are stamped for 45 psig/144°C design temperature and full vacuum. Steam baffles are equipped in the chamber to minimize wetting by condensate and to ensure proper steam distribution within the chamber. The chamber floor is slopped toward the drain to allow for complete drainage of condensate.

The chamber jacket is constructed of 316Ti for superior corrosion resistance to plant steam. The jacket is utilized to preheat the chamber prior to sterilization and aids in reduction of condensate. The heated jacket also helps during the drying phase of the cycle for textiles or other porous loads. As an option, the jacket can be utilized to aid in cooling liquid loads by applying cooling water to the jacket.

Key Features:

Stainless Steel Construction

316L stainless steel chamber and piping with a 316Ti jacket for corrosion free operation. 304 stainless steel framework eliminates rust.

Energy Efficient

The chamber and piping are fully insulated to help reduce utility consumption. Equipped water recirculation system reduces water consumption by up to 75%

Microprocessor Controls

Double microprocessor controls and instrumentation with a 8.4″ color touch screen (12″ screen option available)

Automatic Doors

Automatic motor driven chamber doors with built-in safety features.

Sterivap Sterilization Cycles

Sterivap sterilizers can be programmed with any combination of the sterilization cycles described below with configurable parameters for each cycle phase. The programmed cycle recipe is stored in the sterilizer’s control system memory and is recalled and started with the touch of a button on the operator interface. All recipes are also protected from unauthorized changes via a multi-level authentication system.

The dry good cycle provides effective sterilization of hard goods, filters, linens, and other porous materials, wrapped goods, and products that are unaffected by vacuum. The load is preconditioned utilizing vacuum and steam pulses. The cycle then advances to heat-up and continues until it reaches the settable exposure temperature of 110­°C up to 135°C. Once the exposure temperature set point is reached, the controller counts down the exposure time. After the exposure time is completed, drying begins and can be accomplished by fast exhaust and pulling a deep vacuum to remove moisture.

This cycle provides effective sterilization of rubber stoppers, hoses, and other material where trapped moisture can be difficult to remove. The load is preconditioned utilizing vacuum and steam pulses. The cycle then advances to heat-up and continues until it reaches the settable exposure temperature of 110°C up to 135°C. Once the exposure time is completed, drying begins and is accomplished by fast exhaust, vacuum, and air pulses which are highly effective at removing moisture from the load. To aid drying further, the air can be heated.

The solution cycle with gravity effectively sterilizes liquid products or items in vented or sealed glass containers. The load is preconditioned utilizing steam pulses. The cycle then advances to heat-up and continues until it reaches the settable exposure temperature of 110°C up to 135°C. Once the exposure temperature set point is reached, the controller counts down the exposure time. After the exposure time is completed, exhaust ramping gradually returns liquids to a temperature below boiling.

The solution cycle with gravity effectively sterilizes liquid products or items in vented or sealed glass containers. The load is preconditioned utilizing steam pulses. The cycle then advances to heat-up and continues until it reaches the settable exposure temperature of 110°C up to 135°C. Once the exposure temperature set point is reached, the controller counts down the exposure time. After the exposure time is completed, cooling of the product is started by injecting air at a pressure similar to that of the product to avoid breakage of the container. Cold water is introduced to the jacket of the chamber to help cool the product at a faster rate.
Sterivap sterilizers can be equipped with optional effluent sterilization cycles suitable for BSL-3 laboratory applications. During effluent sterilization cycles, all steam effluent is captured, filtered, and sterilized prior to being drained out the chamber, ensuring laboratory staff and the environment are further protected from contamination.

Sterilizer Loading Equipment

BMT USA manufactures stainless steel loading equipment in standard or custom designs to accommodate any type of load. Our smaller chamber sizes can be equipped with wire or perforated shelves or loading racks, while large chambers can be equipped with loading carts and transfer trolleys. Large pit-mounted chamber include options for tracks and rub rails that can be designed to work with almost any type of wheel configuration on existing equipment. Carts with drop down wheels are also available for rooms with limited space.
