In the first part of this two-part series, we answered some important questions about autoclave maintenance: what the common causes of damage are, what kind of preventative measures should be taken, and we even talked about some autoclave components that are more important than others for proper uses of autoclaves. Now, we’re going to explore a few questions about regular maintenance tasks that can help improve autoclave functions.
How frequently should an autoclave be serviced? Getting your autoclave professionally serviced is important to keep the device in good working condition. For all autoclaves, like a Tuttnauer 2540M, professional inspection, maintenance, and repairs should be done at least once a year. For some devices, more than one annual inspection may be necessary. During this service, a technician will inspect all components and make repairs as needed.
What are some important monthly maintenance tasks? At least once a month, the autoclave should go through a cleaning cycle to ensure all of its components are working properly. During a monthly inspection, one important component to pay close attention to is the pressure bleed valve. This valve is important for safely using the pressurized steam and it should be checked regularly.
Are daily inspections necessary? Before you use any autoclave device, like a Tuttnauer 2540M, you should give it a quick inspection. You should look for any loose parts or signs of damage — and if anything seems wrong, the device should not be used. The water in the device should be changed daily and the device should be turned off when not in use for optimal safety.
Autoclaves are used everywhere — whether it’s in the 21,000 tattoo shops in the U.S. or the thousands of hospitals and medical facilities, the functions of autoclave devices are essential for the safety and wellbeing of clients and patients. And hopefully, this two-part series answered some of your questions and will help you maintain your device as needed.
