Tech Tip: Be sure your Pelton Crane OCR Plus heating element is defective before replacing it, by performing the following test:

How To Test The Pelton Crane OCR Plus Heating Elements

This test consists of measuring the amount of resistance in the element. To do this, first, turn the autoclave off and unplug it from the wall


Set your volt/ohm meter on 200 ohms (200 NOT 200k). The ohms range is located within the Omega (Ω )(look for this symbol) section of your meter. It is also the area with "k" ranges (ie: 2000k,. 200k, 20K and then 2000, 200).

Place a probe from the volt/ohm meter on each terminal of the 2 terminals on the element (it really doesn't matter which color probe goes where)

While the center heating element is the most common to wear out, be sure to test all three

For the heating element to be good, it must fall within the resistance range in this table (between 8.10 and 9.90 ohms) If your reading is outside of this range, then it is defective and needs to be replaced.

Autoclave Repair Tip
When Replacing a Fiber Heating Element on The OCR Plus with the Newer Steel Jacketed Heating Element
Here is what you need to know



If the autoclave repair you are performing on your Pelton Crane OCR Plus involves replacing the heating element, and the old heating element is made of a fiber material instead of encased in a steel jacket, you will need to make sure you remove the Copper Plate that is with the old element


To avoid confusion, note that the Copper Plate is not copper in color, nor is it the familiar green of copper as it weathers.



Instead, it will be black as shown in the picture below



OCM Copper Plate



Failure to remove this Copper Plate will result in a short, so make sure you remove and discard it before installing the new heating element!



The finished sequence of parts are:


  1. The Stainless Steel Bands (looks like big hose clamps)
  2. The Steel Bracket that the Heating Element Rests On
  3. The Heating Element - Flat Against the Chamber
