An Autoclave uses pressurized steam to sterilize surgical tools. Maintaining your autoclave by keeping it clean from bacteria, grime, and other debris is very important.  There are a few tips you can follow to make sure your autoclave stays up and running.

Daily and Weekly Maintenance: There are regular preventative maintenance routines scheduled by the manufacturer and it’s critical that you stay on schedule by following the set times.

Stay Organized: Keep a record of when the preventative maintenance was performed to help you stay on schedule.  To make life easy, use labels every time maintenance is complete.  Just mark the date and the procedures performed. Then, stick it somewhere on the autoclave.

Save Time: Don’t wait until the last minute to order maintenance items.  When you order parts, always order at least two sets, so you will always have a spare part handy.

Following these simple steps will make your life easier and save you from high repair costs.
