Tips for buying Table Top Steam Sterilizer
- Facilities need to follow certain procedures to ensure successful sterilization; these include: pre-washing instruments, correctly loading instruments, and using the appropriate time and temperature setting on the steam sterilizer. Steam sterilizing unit users are strongly encouraged to follow the suppliers' instructions.
- These steam sterilizer units should have a method to continually monitor key parameters, such as: temperature, pressure, and time, and to provide a record that can be signed and dated for quality assurance purposes. Audible and visible alarms should alert users in case a fault is detected that might cause unsafe or erroneous results.
- A steam sterilizer's price is affected by the following: method of air removal, chamber size, controller options, service contracts, trade-in equipment, delivery area and freight charges. However, the main operating expense for these steam sterilizer units is energy cost, which is linked to the steam production method used by the steam sterilizing unit, and depends on the price of electricity or flammable gas.
- Some third-party organizations may also provide steam sterilizer service. Facilities should carefully consider buying a service contract, which can be justified for several reasons. With a service contract, facilities receive preventive maintenance at regular intervals, and reducing the possibility of unexpected maintenance costs. Many steam sterilizing unit suppliers extend performance guarantees beyond the length of the warranty only to steam sterilizer systems covered by a service contract.
