PCH091-282 HEATER INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Remove old heater in normal fashion.
2. Inspect and clean outside of chamber.
3. Install new heaters, making sure that contact between heater and chamber is evenly distributed.
CAUTION: To assure no burnouts due to hot spots,
be certain that:
A. Chamber surface is dry and smooth.
B. Contact of heater to chamber is completely even and uniform.
4. Sequentially tighten tie down bands. The same amount of torque should be applied to all four bands (40 in. lbs.).Note: Excessive tightening of nuts may cause heater to fail.Tech Tip:
Perform final inspection. Verify that the curvature of the heaters
matches the chamber and no gaps exist. Allow 10-15 minutes "burn-in"
Be sure your original Pelton Crane Magnaclave Heating Element is defective before replacing it, by performing
the following test
Testing The Pelton Crane Magnaclave Main Heater Strip
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).
|For the heating element to be good, it must fall within the resistance range in this table (between 38.7 and 47.3 ohms) If your reading is outside of
this range, then it is defective and needs to be replaced.
