How Our Free Tuttnauer TVET 10M Preventative Maintenance Program Can Help You Leave a comment

At the end of each of our maintenance articles, we always advertise a Free Preventive Maintenance Program. And today we’d like to take some time to tell you more in depth about what we do to make sure your Tuttnauer autoclave service needs are satisfied. Everything from the steps we take to ensure proper communication to examples on how we do it used with one of Tuttnauer’s best veterinary autoclaves. We understand that everything can be a lot to take in when trying to keep your autoclaves in top shape, and that’s why we’re here to help.

When it comes time for scheduled repair, our program aims to notify you when it’s maintenance time. And even walk you through it all to ensure you’re doing the proper procedures, getting the exact parts (if you need them), and help maximize efficiency and longevity of your autoclaves.

Examples of Tuttnauer TVET 10M Autoclave Maintenance 

To tell you more about our program, we’re using the the maintenance schedules of one of Tuttnauer’s best manual veterinary autoclaves, the Tuttnauer TVET 10M.

Tuttnauer TVET 10M Daily Maintenance
  • Clean the Door Gasket with a mild detergent, water and a soft cloth or sponge. The gasket should be clean and smooth.

Tuttnauer TVET 10M Weekly Maintenance
  • ONCE PER WEEK, clean the TVET 10M Air Jet. To ensure that the temperature inside the chamber rises properly, it is necessary to keep the Air Jet clean. A dirty Air Jet will prevent indicator strips from changing color and cause spore tests to fail.
  • Once per week, clean and descale the chamber, copper tubes and the reservoir using Chamber Brite.

Do not use steel wool, steel brush or bleach as this can damage the chamber and trays!

  • Take out the Tray Holder and Trays. Clean the Tray Holder and Trays with detergent or a non-abrasive stainless steel cleaner and water, using a cloth or sponge. Rinse the Tray Holder and Trays immediately with water to avoid staining the metal.
  • Put a few drops of oil on the 2 door pins and door tightening bolt screw shaft and bearing.
  • Clean the outer parts of the autoclave with a soft cloth.

How Was That All Related?

All of this was related to the thought process of our Free Preventative Maintenance Program. While those instructions were not word-for-word, that basic summary, the article we’ve written on this subject, and the parts and materials we sell should give you a bit of insight. We have the know-how on how it should work, a variety of parts for selection should yours not work, and our free tech support to help you schedule, order parts if needed, and time your maintenance so that your autoclave CAN work.

Final Thoughts 

A huge part of any practice is ensuring that all equipment is running safely and efficiently. If it’s not working properly you can have a sudden failure or not get equipment properly sterilized. With different manufacturers come different autoclaves, which means different maintenance methods. Maintenance scheduling and instructions can be daunting. Add more than one machine and that task becomes even more complex. But that’s why we’re here to help at no cost anytime you need. The purpose of our Free Scican Preventive Maintenance Program is to remove the stress and worry of what maintenance is due for which machine, and when it’s time for it to be done.

We’ll be there to remind you when things need cleaning or replacing. And you’ve got 24/7 access to our library of videos and articles about anything you may need help with. With all these extras you can focus on your practice and patients instead of the equipment. So you can sit back and relax until you hear from us again!
