Installation Instructions Included
Be sure your original Pelton Crane HP 800 Watt heaters are defective before replacing them by performing
the following test
Testing The Original HP 800 Watt Heating Elements
If you have two heaters on your unit, then they are 800 watts each and this is for you. If you have a single (1600 Watt) Heater,
the test & resistance ratings you are looking for can be found here
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 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 wire where it connects to the element (it really doesn't matter which
color probe goes where). Be sure to test both elements.
|For the heating element to be good, it must fall within the resistance range in this table (between 16.2 and 19.8 ohms) If your reading is outside of
this range, then it is defective and needs to be replaced.
||16.2 - 19.8 ohms
800 Watt Heaters are no longer available. This single 1600 Watt Heater replaces both heaters on your unit. Even if only one is bad, they both must be removed
