CLAVE B – Class B
The CLAVE B is our first Class B Steam Sterilizer and uses the same great technology as our two other CLAVE products featuring an independent steam generator which ensures quick sterilization cycles, LCD display with clear and easy to use interface, stainless steel chamber and a double locking mechanism that provides added safety to prevent the door from opening when in use or if pressurized.
The CLAVEB is a Class B sterilizer which utilizes a state-of-the art vacuum system that dynamically removes air from the chamber before and after the sterilization cycle. These small sized and very powerful tabletop autoclaves use a dynamic air removal process with the help of a pre/post vacuum system that provides superior advantages over other types of table top autoclaves. As one very important advantage, the pre-sterilization vacuum helps remove cold air from the chamber before sterilization starts, thus allowing more thorough steam penetration throughout the entire load. In addition, the post-sterilization vacuum facilitates drying by removing steam at the end of sterilization portion of the cycle thus allowing faster and more thorough drying of pouches and packs.
The CLAVEB provides a large 23L chamber capacity with 4 trays included, and a maximum capacity of 5 trays. The fast speeds and capabilities of the CLAVEB allows the user to process more instruments at a more effective and efficient manner. In addition, the Class B sterilizers can be used for any type of loads including porous material, products in pouches, textiles, and hollow items such as tips and handpieces.
The CLAVEB is a fully automatic tabletop autoclave with preset sterilization programs. The software it uses is some of the most advanced with 5 pre-programmed cycles that include cycles appropriate for Unwrapped, Wrapped, Plastics, Textile and Prions. In addition, there are 3 test cycles for Bowie and Dick Test (B&D), Vacuum Test and Helix Test included as well. As for the software, it uses thermal and pressure sensors to detect any irregularities with the system and provides error codes that will notify the user of any issues. The safety features on the autoclave also help to ensure that the device is working in a safe manner thus reducing the risk of injury or damage to the machine.
