How To Test The Pelton Crane OCM Heating Elements

 


The Pelton Crane OCM Autoclave has 3 Heating Elements. While The Center Heating Element (the heating element on the bottom of the chamber) is the most common to fail, be sure to check all 3

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 of the 2 terminals on 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 10.800 ↔ 13.2000 ohms) If your reading is outside of this range, then it is defective and needs to be replaced.
Model Volts Watts Amps Resistance Resistance Range
Pelton Crane OCM 120v 1250 Watts 10.4167 amps ~12.00 Ohms Between 10.8000 13.2000 ohms

 


If you find one or more of the Pelton Crane OCM Heating Element(s) Are Defective, do not try to replace them until you have the new one(s) on hand.

The installation goes much smoother & faster when you can disconnect from the old heating element and immediately make the same connections to the new

 

 

 

Autoclave Repair Tip
When Replacing a Fiber Heating Element with the Newer Steel Jacketed Heating Element
Here is what you need to know

 

 

If the autoclave repair you are performing on your Pelton Crane OCM involves replacing the heating element, and the old heating element is made of a fiber material instead of encased in a steel jacket, you will need to make sure you remove the Copper Plate that is with the old element

To avoid confusion, note that the Copper Plate is not copper in color, nor is it the familiar green of copper as it weathers.

Instead, it will be black as shown in the picture below

OCM Copper Plate

Failure to remove this Copper Plate will result in a short, so make sure you remove and discard it before installing the new heating element!

The finished sequence of parts are:

  1. The Stainless Steel Bands (looks like big hose clamps)
  2. The Steel Bracket that the Heating Element Rests On
  3. The Heating Element - Flat Against the Chamber
