why sterilization is necessary
You might have been listening when Doctors recommend boiling water for few minutes to make it disinfectant or you have seen when most of Doctors use to boil their tools into the water for several minutes to sterilize them. Now why they do so and what will happen if tools are not sterilized. Now here in Tanco will provide an answer to all these questions arises. Why is this so necessary and what is its applicability in different industries.
What is Sterilization?
Sterilization is a process of destroying of all forms of living microorganisms from articles. Articles having direct interaction or application on humans and animals are subjected to be sterilization. These materials include drugs, surgical equipment or tools, food, etc. Sterilization is done to keep the substance for a long time without decay or safe for medical use.
Secondly, a substance that is not sterilized may contain microbes as fungi, bacteria or viruses which may cause infections when consumed or apply on human or animal body. So sterilization is very necessary and unavoidable. The microbes are invisible to naked eye, and even those like bacteria have a protective cover on their surface making them resistant to sterilization.
Now Doctors and Lab Technicians use to boil their tools and equipment into the water for few minutes to assure that articles have been free from any micro organism and safe for further use. Now, this was about the sterilization before any procedure in most of the institution as a hospital, laboratory etc. But Sterilization is also necessary for medical or laboratory wastes.
Now we all know about waste produced in our daily life, but what the difference between ordinary waste and medical waste is. You might have seen yellow, Red, Blue and Black dustbin in Hospital or in laboratory etc. This is only to manage waste produced from suchinstitutions. This mostly contains medical waste. This type of waste may contain human tissue or other medical articles which cannot be disposed directly before sterilization and proper incineration.
Why Sterilization is necessary
Medical waste may contain tissue and other articles used in medical procedures as bandages, plaster, needles etc which may cause infection to anyone if it has not been sterilized before dispose of i.e incineration. The process of incineration includes shredding, in which articles have been cut into small pieces so as it may dispose and finally these waste is subject to burn in a closed chamber. The ashes of the bio-medical waste are then buried under the soil using the guidelines mentioned by the government.
Now Tanco Lab Products is producing a variety of Autoclave used in sterilization process with a new guideline to sterilize the medical waste before incineration. Tanco is producing Double walled, Single Walled, Horizontal, Vertical, Portable, Table top Autoclaves.Let's talk about one of the Tanco Autoclave.
Double Walled Autoclave Horizontal is famous for a general sterilization ideal tool for Laboratories, Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Agricultural R&D labs etc, Pharmaceutical, Food & Beverage Industries, and Institutions. Suitable for Sterilizing hospital dressings, linen, rubber, plastic goods, surgical instruments, glasswares, utensils etc
Salient Features & Construction
Double walled unit horizontally mounted on a sturdy, heavy M.S. stand duly painted or Stainless steel tubular stand
Chamber & Boiler (Steam Generator) are constructed from S.S. 304 Grade.
Lid (single piece door) made of stainless steel tightened by Radial Locking System.
Sealing of Lid by Neoprene Rubber Gasket.
Chamber Insulated by Mineral/Glass Wool to minimize the heat losses and is covered by polished stainless steel sheet.
Fitted with pressure gauge, safety valve, and steam release valve.
Sterilizing Temperature up to 134 C.
Sterilizing pressure : 1.2 to 1.5 kg/cm2 (15 psi to 22psi)
Hydraulically Tested up to 40 psi.
These Autoclaves work on the principle of downward displacement of air which is the most economical method of obtaining sterilization.
Fitted with separate valves for injecting the steam into the main chamber.
Fitted with Automatic Vacuum Breaker to break the vacuum in case of formation of vacuum due to steam condensation.
Fitted with Automatic Low Water Level Cut-off Device for Prevention of Heaters
Fitted with Automatic Pressure Control Switch to economize power consumption by reducing the frequent opening of the steam release valve. It cuts off the power supply to heaters when the set pressure is achieved and re-energizes the heating elements when pressure falls below the setpoint.
Fitted with Dial thermometer to indicate the inner chamber temperature. (Optional)
Voltage: 220 Volts AC (50 Hz).
All the disposing of the bio-medical waste has to be recorded and a proper record should be kept for a period of at least 5 years. Tanco provides autoclave (or) sterilizer with Data Logger and a Printer which keep its data at least for 5 years. Tanco is manufacturing world class products with all its certifications.
