Flash Sterilization System

Primus' Stat-Cycle Flash Sterilization Cycle for Small and medium sized sterilizers reduces Start-to-finish cycle times using a volume-efficient rectangular chamber. A single push button initiates the cycle, which can be preset to preferred time and temperature parameters. A printout showing all cycle parameters is produced for a permanent record of the cycle, and an optional serial data port is offered to transmit data for accumulation and monitoring on a remote PC. The sterilizer consumes less steam per cycle, and, when used with the integral electric steam boilers, reduces electricity consumption. The unit includes a polished stainless Steel chamber with a mirror-reflective surface that is hostile to microorganisms.
