How To Test Pelton Crane Heating Elements

How To Test Pelton Crane 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

WARNING: CURRENT MUST NOT BE PRESENT WHEN MEASURING RESISTANCE.

Set your 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 the "k" ranges (ie: 2000k,. 200k, 20K and then 2000, 200)

Place a probe from the ohm meter on each wire where it connects to the element (it really doesn't matter which color probe goes where). Compare your readings to the ranges for your heating element as determined below

For the heating element to be good, it must fall within the resistance range in the table below. If it is outside of the range for your heating element, then it is no good and needs to be replaced. Clicking On The Part Number will take you to the replacement heater for your unit
