types of sterilisers?
In choosing a steriliser it is vitally important to purchase the unit that will sterilise for your specific requirements. The choice will come down to three “classes” of unit. B Class, S Class and N Class. In our range of units, the most commonly used are B and S Class units. These two classes represent the range from basic sterilisation through to the most complex loads and instrument styles.
The B Class unit is designed for use in practices which sterilize complex loads, linens, and hollow instruments. A “B Class” cycle is capable of sterilizing all wrapped (single or double) or unwrapped items, including porous and cannulated items that do not exceed the specifications of Hollow load Type A. Practices which would need a B Class unit include Dental, Hospital, General Day Surgery and Specialist Surgery Centres.
The S Class unit is designed for use where the instruments to be sterilised are generally deemed to be less than B Class requirements. However where the manufactures states, the operator may be able to sterilise up to B Class ranges of sterilisation. The S Class unit is generally suited best for general practice, veterinary, podiatry laboratory and some specialists.
