Things to Consider When Installing an Autoclave at Your Workplace

When planning the installation or positioning of an autoclave, extra thought must be given to the space required by autoclaves, along with the services they will be used for. Because certain autoclave systems are so big that they won’t fit into the available space. This can make the task more complicated that you would have imagined.
While bench top laboratory autoclaves and sterilizers have a small footprint and usually present fewer problems while installing. The larger models are often like getting a quart into a pint pot. Moreover, if there is not an easy way in the manufacturer will leave the equipment at your doorstep. This will leave the problem of getting the autoclave into position down to you.
Hence, it’s not at all sensible to plan the installation of an autoclave after purchasing it. In fact, it must be a part of the initial designing of your workplace, if you are going to require an autoclave for certain operations. The increased sophistication of autoclaves, coupled with the possibility of bio-hazards, makes it’s necessary to plan venting, drainage and water supplies in prior.

Things to Ponder for Hassle-free Autoclaves Installation

Most issues can be easily overcome by talking to an autoclave manufacturer or supplier during the initial planning process. Mentioned below are the key aspects to consider:

  • Can the autoclave be moved to the required location via the front or back door, corridors, steps and tight corners?
  • What kind of water and/or steam is required for the autoclave operation?
  • Electrical Supply: Single Phase or 3 Phase and how many amps?
  • Will the autoclave require heat extraction?
  • Is access to a drain available?
  • If yes, will the drainpipes stand the temperature of the exhaust?
  • Will there be enough space around for easy access?
  • How much room size do you have?
  • You should ideally allow the following space around the autoclave:
    • 1m to the sides.
    • 300mm or more to the rear.
    • Twice the length of loading trolley to the front.

If you have autoclave installation service requirements then choose reputable autoclave manufacture or supplier to provide assistance and advice on these factors. Also, you can arrange a site survey to ensure everything fits perfectly.
