Equipment Control
Equipment Control Products play an extremely important role in sterilisation process monitoring, using chemical indicators to verify that sterilisation equipment is performing effectively it is normally carried out once a day in an empty chamber it is a straight-forward test for air removal and penetration using either Bowie and Dick type Challenge test packs or electronic monitoring using an electronic test system (ETS)

Electronic Test System

Electronic Test System (ETS)

The 3M Electronic Test System (ETS) is a unique independently validated and calibrated system. It comprises of a sensing unit, data-coverter and dedicated PC based software. It has been independently documented as satisfying the daily steam penetration test. This precise instrument replaces a number of the standard tests carried out on a steam porous load steriliser, saving time and increasing the productivity of the sterilisation facilities. Conforms to BS:EN ISO11140-1.
