MATERIAL HANDLING: RAMP/TRACK SYSTEM

Tracks are provided at the bottom of the autoclave to match the ramp section. Ramp is designed and positions for simple loading and unloading of the autoclave vessel.

SYSTEM PIPING.

The autoclave system will completely piped at the factory prior to shipment for simple installation. The system piping will consist of the following:

  • Condensate Drains Steam traps (2) – front and rear steam traps maintains the vessel free of condensate.
  • Thermocouple connections.
  • Steam Inlet Valve/Strainer – proportionally controlled steam inlet valve for smooth and Accurate control of steam pressure inlet. Steam inlet valve is controlled by a PID loop controlled by the PLC.

CONTROL SYSTEM/PROCESS VALVES/CONTROL PANEL & INSTRUMENTATION

The autoclave control panel is package in a NEMA 12 rated panel. The autoclave system is controlled by a state-of-the-art “Super Micro” Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) with modem hookup capabilities for online support. The PLC performs automatic sterilization control control that includes pre-vacuum, pressurization/heat soak, vent and post-vacuum. The PLC monitors pressure vessel conditions for providing safety interlock for door operation.
