Heat sterilization is an important part of our treatment & safety protocols. Our office was one of the first in Michigan to implement the Statim Autoclave and it’s been a mainstay in our office ever since. When it was announced that the next generation Statim was available we couldn’t resist. Meet the newest member of our high tech equipment the STATIM G4 5000 by SciCan.
Immediate Steam Generation
Unlike conventional autoclaves that need to heat an entire reservoir of water, STATIM uses only a small, specific amount of water required for each cycle. Water is introduced into a heating device referred to as a ‘steam generator’, rapidly heated and converted to steam in mere seconds.
Using PPPD technology and our patented steam injection STATIM process – air is automatically forced out of the STATIM sterilization chamber.
The thin stainless steel walls of STATIM’s fully-removable cassette, (or sterilization chamber) allow for rapid heating and cooling of the chamber. As a result, STATIM meets the conditions for sterilization and drying in a fraction of the time required by a conventional autoclave.
There’s nothing like the STATIM networked portal. In addition to viewing your STATIM’s current operations, you can also access cycle history, printing and validation information and sterilization records. The STATIM G4 can send email directly to your office and also to your dealer to let qualified technicians know that servicing is required.
The STATIM 2000 G4 and 5000 G4 have each been designed to provide you with a complete solution: rapid sterilization balanced by rapid drying. Introducing STATIM Dri-Tec drying technology.
Dri-TecC – Convection Heat
The STATIM 2000 G4 uses convection heat to dry instruments by utilizing the remaining heat in the system after the sterilization phase. Heat is captured and released into the cassette, drying wrapped instrument loads in as little as 10 minutes.
Dri-TecR – Radiant Heat
The STATIM 5000 G4 uses heat generated by the sterilization cycle which is ‘absorbed’ by unique drying plates located in the sterilization chamber. Heat is transferred from the drying plates directly to instruments resulting in accelerated, full load drying in as little as 15 minutes.
