What’s In The Box
This is a picture of what will be included in your specific kit.
The first item is the Door Gasket to the right of the parts as shown above. The door gasket helps seal the autoclave door and prevent steam leaks. It’s always listed as an annual maintenance part, however if you run consecutive or back-to-back cycles it will need to be changed more frequently.
The top item under the green gasket is the safety valve. The Safety Release Valve is designed to relieve the autoclave of any excess pressure so as to not cause damage. It is located inside of the reservoir.
Air Jet Valve (Red Top)
Under the safety release valve is the Air Jet Valve with the red top. Failure to clean the air jet valve can result in failed spore tests of your autoclave. And it can be found within the reservoir of the unit.
Rubber Boot for Door Switch
The Rubber Boot for Door Switch allows you to extend the longevity of your door by preventing moisture from entering it.
Fill/Vent Mesh Chamber Filters
These chamber filters are there to help filter dirt and debris out during each cycle. They can be easily removed to be cleaned or replaced entirely.
