What Does The Tuttnauer Door Bellows Do?
The Door Bellows on Tuttnauer 3870M Autoclaves is a safety device that prevents the door
from opening when the chamber is pressurized.
How The Tuttnauer Door Bellows Works
The system utilizes the buildup of pressure inside the autoclave chamber
to expand a flexible Silicon-Rubber bellows. The bellows
pushes a metal pin into a grove on the tightening bolt of the
Door Closing Device.
This prevents the operator from opening the door when
there is pressure in the chamber. When the steam is
released, this bellow returns to its original position, drawing
the pin with it and releasing the tightening bolt.
