We offer different levels of autoclave repair and maintenance services.
Sometimes, your sterilization equipment just needs a standard repair. In these cases, we simply repair the unit so it operates per the manufacturer’s specifications. All of our services come with a warranty for additional peace of mind. In the event a more advanced repair is needed, we will:
Inspect and replace all old and worn parts.
Check for clogs and properly clean the chamber drains.
Descale and clean the internal chamber.
Get the unit working to OEM specifications.
We offer a variety of additional services to our laboratory partners. If your autoclaves are critical to laboratory operations, consider a comprehensive service contract. Such a contract includes the cost of repairs and replacement parts (along with preventative maintenance and compliance services). In addition to this, we also offer a critical spares list, which allows you to buy the parts and keep them at your facility in your inventory (which helps keep down-time to a minimum). Our depot service technicians are also prepared to offer flat-rate shipping for approved autoclave repairs.
Common issues that require autoclave repair services.
By following a few simple rules, one can avoid the need for repair services. Full Spectrum Group is happy to provide training to educate staff on best practices for autoclave usage. Below are examples of the most frequent cases that require autoclave repair.
- It is important not to “overload” the autoclave during a sterilization cycle. This could cause a failure to actually sterilize the contents. (The more you load your chamber, the more time and power it will take to reach the needed temperature.)
- We get contacted when sterilization cycles get aborted or canceled mid-cycle. The culprit is usually large liquid loads, which take a lot of energy to sterilize. Running many smaller loads is the best way to sterilize liquids and avoid sterilization termination mid-cycle.
- One must closely monitor the melting point for items put into the sterilization chamber. These units reach extremely high temperatures—temperatures that can easily melt certain types of plastic. Melted plastic in the chamber will require advanced autoclave repair services.
- Not checking the chamber drains and cleaning them regularly could keep the unit from reaching the desired temperature. This is a great troubleshooting tip if the team is running into temperature issues! If left unchecked, clogged chamber drains can cause damage to other integral parts.
