How do I choose which sterilizer to purchase? First, consider what types of items you will be sterilizing. Take into account where you will be using the autoclave and the amount of space that is available in that area. If you need help deciding which sterilizer is the right choice for you, our customer service team will be glad to help. You can reach customer service at Why are there water marks on the inside of my new sterilizer?

Your new sterilizer will have light water marks on the inside of the unit because each All American Sterilizer is inspected and tested for accuracy and quality by the manufacturer. How to use your All American Sterilizer Before you begin, place the sterilizer on a flat, heat tolerant surface near an electrical outlet Electric.

Or place sterilizer on heat source Non-electric. Remove the cover of the sterilizer by turning the wing nuts in a counter-clockwise motion. Always undo two opposite wing nuts at a time. Remove the inner container and inner container rack from inside the sterilizer. Apply a thin layer of lubricant, such as high vacuum grease or petroleum jelly, to the metal to metal seal. Fill the sterilizer to the water line in the bottom of the sterilizer with distilled water. The water must be directly over the heating element, NOT inside the inner container.

Next, place the inner container rack inside the inner container with the lip side down. While the inner container is still outside of the sterilizer, place the items to be sterilized on the inner container rack. You may wish to place the items inside plastic bags designed for use inside steam sterilizers. Arrange the items so that steam may circulate freely inside the chamber during the sterilization cycle.

Check to be sure you water level inside the sterilizer is correct and then place the loaded inner container inside the sterilizer. This is necessary so that when the cover is placed on the unit, you can guide the air exhaust tube into the air exhaust tube channel.

Place the cover on the sterilizer. Make sure the index alignment arrow on the cover aligns with the index line arrow on the side of the bottom.

Also, make sure the air exhaust tube is inserted into the air exhaust tube channel. Tighten the wing nuts to secure the cover in place. Always tighten two opposite wing nuts at one time to ensure the cover is on the sterilizer evenly. Never use a wrench or mechanical device to tighten the wing nuts. Plug the power supply cord into the proper outlet - V or V.

The red pilot light should be illuminated Electric. Or turn on outside heat source Non-electric. Open the control valve by moving the lever to the upright position.

It will take approximately 45 minutes to build pressure inside the sterilizer. This may vary based on the size of the sterilizer. Steam will be drawn from the bottom of the unit up through the air exhaust tube and out of the control valve. Steam must continually escape from the control valve for at least 5 minutes. Open the control valve a second time and vent the chamber an additional 3 to 5 minutes.

The reason for the second venting is to avoid sterilizer failure from trapped air in the chamber, which may prevent the steam from permeating the items to be sterilized. Once the chamber is properly vented, the sterilization process begins. Start timing the sterilization cycle when the gauge is in the green zone.

It is recommended to run a sterilization cycle of no less than 35 minutes at a temperature of no less than degrees Fahrenheit degrees Celsius. Use the timer on the left side of the unit 50x and 75x only. Be sure to monitor the gauge during the sterilization cycle. The valve will be very hot. To avoid potential injury, always wear heat resistant gloves to open the valve.

Continue monitoring the gauge until it reaches 0 PSI. Never attempt to open the sterilizer until the gauge reads zero. With the pressure gauge reading zero, loosen the wing nuts. The wing nuts may be hot, so be sure to wear your heat resistant gloves when loosening them. Remove the cover. Remember to tilt the cover away from yourself to prevent injury from any remaining steam.

Remove the inner container. If the sterilizer is not going to be immediately used again, empty all of the water from the unit and thoroughly dry the inside of the unit. Leave the control valve open during storage to allow air to circulate through your sterilizer. Autoclave Maintenance - Maintaining your sterilizer It is recommended to periodically check the metal-to-metal seal and lubricate as needed.

It is very important to keep the seal lubricated because, without proper lubrication, the cover could stick and become very difficult to remove. Be sure not to immerse your pressure gauge in water when cleaning the sterilizer. The gauge does not require any regular maintenance other than periodically checking the opening to make sure it is clear of any debris.

Do not use your unit if the gauge face cracks, fills with steam or does not return to zero pressure. It is important to periodically clean the control valve in hot, soapy water. This helps to ensure a long life and proper operation for your unit.

If distilled water is not used during sterilization, calcification can build up and cause the valve to leak. To clean any built up calcification, soak the valve in vinegar and then wash in hot, soapy water and dry thoroughly.

The air exhaust tube needs to be frequently checked to ensure that air passes freely through it. Simply remove the air exhaust tube from the control valve on the bottom of the sterilizer cover and blow through it. If you notice any difficulty cleaning the air exhaust tube of debris or notice any corrosion, it is best to discard the tube and replace it with a new one. It is recommended that the pressure relief valve be replaced every 3 years. It is recommended that the overpressure plug be replaced every 6 months.
