How To Troubleshoot The HEPA Filter
The indication that the Air Filter is ready to be changed is that the Dry Cycle is taking longer and longer to completely dry the packs
Is The HEPA Filter Important?
The HEPA Filter is very important!
During the Drying Stage, the Air Pump draws air through the HEPA Filter and pushes the filtered air into the heated chamber to facilitate drying.
During this process, the Sterilization Cycle has been completed, and there is no longer any pressure remaining in the chamber (and the heat drops considerably). So, if the air is not filtered through the HEPA Filter, the sterility of the instruments you just sterilized is compromised.
