Batteries in this unit are NiCD alarm batteries which I found always are dead. The lithium memory batteries last forever evidently (9 years+), and main batteries a couple of years or so depending if the nursing staff will plug them in. The petal covers wear thin and have to be replaced annually for me (every other PM cycle). I check the gaps with the gap tool and found not likely to be off, but best to check the gap. I hate changing the alarm batteries and grimace when I pull one out because it has nine leads that all have to be unsoldered on tiny pads through the board. Why did they use NiCD batteries for goodness sakes?? The green boards are easier than the blue ones to PM and change batteries with.

     Traxx recommends the battery be kept fully charged at all times. With the average patient, that can be at least once a week.  We recommend picking one day a week and let charge over-night.  Battery charger can be left on overnight and will automatically shut off when battery charge is complete. Remove charger from motor unit before using.      The lift system frame can be cleaned with a soft cloth, dampened with water and a non-abrasive cleaner.  The Sling is machine washable in warm water with  non-chlorine detergent and tumble dry on low heat or by hang drying.      Inspect for any appearance of damage or deterioration, if there is, do not use. Check to make sure the trolley in the rail moves freely. Replace any defective parts immediately and make sure patient lift is not in use until repairs are made. www.traxxms.com

I have recently decided to build a Calibration Kit for the Baxter AS 40/50. It includes the fixtures to perform the Driver Position Calibration and the Syringe Recognition Calibration flawlessly. I can also include a weight rig however I know most tech's dont perform this portion of the calibration. If you are interested for more details or if you have any questions please feel free to contact me via email @ GenesisBiomedical@gmail.com.

Thanks,

Nicholas Philbrick

The following suggestions will help Chemiclave users prevent needless service calls and/or repairs.

  1. Use Only Vapo-Steril Solution and store solution separately from other liquids to prevent inadvertent filling of reservoir with a foreign liquid. USE OF ANY LIQUID OTHER THAN VAPO-STERIL MAY PREVENT STERILIZATION AND MAY SEVERELY DAMAGE THE AUTOCLAVE,

  2. Always line the instrument tray with chemically pure Harvey Tray liners. Certain papers (such as paper towels) contain paper processing impurities and may stain or cause deposits in the tray and chamber if used as liners,

  3. Clean the tray at least weekly with Harvey Metal Cleaner to remove stains and prevent build-up of foreign deposits.

  4. Use Harvey Metal Polish on external surfaces daily to prevent residue accumulation.

  5. Check the door gasket periodically for cuts or wear to anticipate leaks and loss of Vapo-Steril Solution. Replace the door gasket yearly as a prevenative measure.

  6. Do not leave the door latched when not in use. Unnecessary pressure will shorten the life span of he door gasket.

Use a non-chloride cleanser (i.e. Cameo, Zud or Bar Keepers Friend) and a green scratch pad. At least once a week clean the inside of the lid of the cassette and the inside of the tray and the outside edge of the lower tray. Once a week take some liquid hand soap and lubricate all exposed surfaces of the seal, to keep it soft and supple. After cleaning, rinse and dry, then apply a liberal amount of Stat Dri to the inside metal surfaces. This SciCan product helps the water dry inside the cassette in less than one minute once the cassette is removed from the machine. Clean the outside surface of the Statim with a mild soap and water. The seal in the cassettes will last approximately 800 cycles and if maintained properly could last longer.
