"How To Take Care Of Your Autoclave And Make it Last
By Replacing Critical Components.....On Schedule"

Tip: It is always a good idea to have someone within your practice designated to provide the maintenance, care and repair of your autoclave: be it Yourself Or a Member of your Staff.

How To Stop Problems Before They Occur

"Failing To Perform Preventative Maintenance Is The Leading Cause Of Autoclave Failure"

Every autoclave has regular Preventative Maintenance Routines, and it is critical they be performed at the times as specified by the manufacturer. Like changing the oil in your car, they have to be done on a regular basis.

The parts involved are.....

YES Door Gaskets (or seals)
YES The Bellows Assembly, Or Steam Trap and
YES Filters

WARNING: Waiting for these parts to fail before replacing them means: when they do fail,
the instruments being autoclaved will not be sterilized!

And, failing to do do these procedures as specified, always leads to major, more expensive problems, somewhere down the line. If you don't know what the procedures are, we are happy to tell you what is specified by the manufactuer of your autoclave and walk you through the entire process.

Keep a record of when the Preventative Maintenance is performed so you can stay on schedule

Tip: While "check sheets" are fine, they usually end up in a drawer or file cabinet somewhere and forgotten about.

We have found the best practice is to take a label (like a shipping label) and write down the date along with a list of the preventative maintenance procedures performed.

Then stick the label somewhere on the autoclave where it will be readily noticeable. This Practice will remove any guess work and will serve as a constant reminder of when the procedures need to be performed again

Here's another Tip: To save time and avoid frustration, try not to wait until the last minute to order the maintenance items for your autoclave. The best practice is to order 2 sets, and then order again when you use the last one. This way, you will always have a spare on hand and will never be rushed to order.

If You Hate Paying Outrageous Overnight Charges To Get The Parts You Need

What would you pay to get your autoclave up and running immediately when it breaks down?

For parts with a predictable life span, you should have replacements on hand, ready to go. So when (not if) it happens, you will be back up and running in no time.

In addition to the normal preventative maintenance items; this would include things like

YES Switches

It is also advisable to have spare Rebuild kits for Valves & Solenoids on hand if applicable for your autoclave.
