Our “How to Replace a Bravo Autoclave Biological Filter” article is the start of a new “Quick Tips” series we want to put out for everyone.
Although many of these tasks are going to seem pretty self-explanatory they are important enough that the manufacturers include them in the User’s/Operator’s manuals. And it’s for that reason that we want to be certain everyone has access to these learning tools.
When do I need to replace the Biological Filter?
The manufacturer Statim suggests the Biological Filter be changed every 500 cycles or six months (whichever comes first). But it should be changed sooner if you notice visible clogging of the filter (when the filter turns gray).
Where is the Biological Filter located?
It is located in the front behind the panel on the lower right side of the unit.
Step 1 of Replacing the Bravo Biological Filter
Open the panel and unscrew the biological filter from its support.
Step 2 of Replacing the Bravo Biological Filter
Take your new biological filter and screw it all the way down on the connector on the front of the machine. When finished be sure to close the panel securely.
And there you have it. A nice quick fix that helps keep your Scican Bravo Autoclave running at peak performance.
