Thermoelectric measurement of small steam sterilizers (chamber volume less than 60 liters)

Thermoelectric measurement of small steam sterilizers <br>(chamber volume less than 60 liters)

The Hygiene Order 2014 was passed on account of the Austrian Law on Doctors (Ärztegesetz), which only allows the operation of steam sterilizers that comply with EN ISO 13060 or ÖN EN 285, amongst other things. The MPG also stipulates that only validated methods may be used to reprocess medical devices. So-called thermoelectric measurements have to be carried out annually on steam sterilizers so that you as the operator can furnish suitable proof.

TÜV AUSTRIA carries out these measurements on your premises. We use the latest radio data loggers that contain the necessary three temperature sensors and a pressure sensor. You receive a detailed test report immediately after the measurement.
