FOD – Dry-Heat Sterilization

  • Sterilizing chamber: sealed welding, made of 304 (optional 316L) stainless steel 1,5 mm thick.
  • Single-leaf flush door on both sides, internal surface in 304 (optional 316L) stainless steel.
  • Thermal isolation in compliance with Euroclass A1 in accordance with EN 13501-1, ensuring the operator’s adequate safety of use at the chamber operating temperature of 250°C.
  • Electric heating through AISI 321 stainless steel heating elements, assembled on a sliding frame for easy removal and maintenance.
  • Electrical heaters are covered with tubes in Incoloy 800 (nickel-iron-chrome superalloy) providing high-temperature resistance and resistance to oxidation, carburization and other types of high-temperature corrosion.
  • Electric centrifugal fans with sealed bearings of special type for high temperature to facilitate air circulation.
  • Cooling by 304 stainless steel heat exchanger.
  • Continuous automatic control and regulation of pressurization of the depyrogenation chamber.
  • Continuous filtering of air in the sterilizing chamber, thanks to a system composed by 4 HEPA filters.
  • 5 RTD PT100 temperature probes.
  • Safety thermometer on non sterile front to prevent door opening if chamber temperature exceeds set value.
  • Stainless steel port for validation probe positioned on not sterile side.
