Vertical/Horizontal Sliding Door Rectangular Autoclave

  • Inner Chamber : SS 316
  • Steam Jacket : SS 316
  • Working pressure : 1.2kg/cm2 & 2.1kg/cm2
  • Working Temperature : 1210C / 1340C

Mode of Control

The control system is provided with PLC and user friendly HMI .The system is provided with manual back up in case of PLC failure by manual Operating Switches. Here all valves, pumps etc. can be operated via switches.

Door

  • The Sterilizer is provided with Single or Double automatic vertical or horizontal sliding doors fabricated from SS316.

  • The door is with mineral wool insulation held in place by a stainless steel outer cover. The door sealing is affected with the help of a silicone door gasket. The gasket is pressurized by compressed air and retracted by vacuum. The door is moved vertically or Horizontally via a pneumatic cylinder. Compound gauges, for gasket pressure, with door status indications are provided on both loading and unloading sides.

  • The following door safety features are provided for maximum operator safety:
    i. Door inter-lock to prevent simultaneous opening of both doors.
    ii. Process-lock to prevent opening of the door during the process.
    iii. Process-lock to prevent the opening of the non-sterile door after successful completion of the cycle.
    iv. Door obstruction safety.

Insulation

The sterilization chamber is insulated with 50-mm thick mineral wool, which is held in place by an outer cover of SS 304.

Cabinet Enclosure

The Sterilizer is mounted on a stainless steel skid and is provided with paneling on all sides. The cabinet is provided with one service door on the side for maintenance and cleaning.

Vacuum Pump

A water ring vacuum pump is provided along with the system. This vacuum pump is used for creating vacuum in the chamber for mechanical air removal prior to sterilization and subsequently or post sterilization vacuum drying

Steam Condenser

The shell and tube type condenser fabricated from SS 304 is fitted in the exhaust/vacuum line to condense the steam before entering inside the vacuum pump.

Vacuum Break Filter

A 0.2 micron vacuum break filter is provided on the sterile side for pressure equalization after vacuum creation.

Piping

All process piping in contact with the chamber is fabricated from SS 316 with argon welding. All connections and fittings used are sanitary tri-clamp with silicone seals.

Validation Ports

The chamber is provided with validation ports with tri-clamp connections

Valves

The process valves in contact with the chamber have SS 316 contact parts, are pneumatically actuated angle valves with Teflon seat and tri-clamp connections. The valves are actuated by instrument air controlled via solenoid valves.
