How To Test Pelton Crane Magnaclave Wall 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) and check your reading
|For the heating element to be good, it must fall within the resistance range in this table (between 103.5 and 126.5 ohms) If your reading is outside of this range, then it is defective and needs to be replaced.

How To Replace The Magnaclave Wall Heater Strip
- Remove the old heater in normal fashion
- Inspect and clean outside of chamber
- Install new heaters, making sure that contact between heater and chamber is evenly distributed. CAUTION: To assure no burnouts due to hot spots:
- Chamber surface is dry and smooth
- Contact of heater to chamber is completely even and uniform
- Sequentially tighten tie down bands. The same amount of torque should be applied to all four bands (40 in. lbs.)
- Perform final inspection. Verify that the curvature of the heaters matches the chamber and no gaps exist. Allow 10-15 minutes "burn-in" time.
Excessive tightening of nuts may cause heater to fail
