Surgical Instrument Washer
LOAD and UNLOAD Surgical Instrument Washer CONFIGURATION (select one): front load and unload, pass through load and unload The Surgical Instrument Washer is provided with an unload door and an additional cycle status indicator on the unload end, allowing one-way product flow from the contaminated area to the clean area. The Surgical Instrument Washer shall be provided with a combination of rotating jet spray and direct spindle spraying for all treatment solutions. The Surgical Instrument Washer spray system consists of a single rotating spray arm mounted above, and interchangeable spindle wash or a rotating jet spray arms mounted below for internal treatment of the racked items. The bottom header automatically couples to the re-circulated wash/rinse treatment system. Surgical Instrument Washer door(s) shall be provided with a full view, tempered, double glass viewing window. All Surgical Instrument Washer treatment components, including jet spray system, screens, pump, and recirculating piping are constructed of 304 stainless steel. Surgical Instrument Washer load-end door (or unload-end if pass-through unit), automatically stops operation of the washer.
The Surgical Instrument Washer door(s) must be closed, alarm acknowledged, and the Cycle Start button depressed to continue operation. The Surgical Instrument Washer Emergency Stop (ES) button is provided on the load-end control panel (and unload-end if pass-through unit). If the operations of the wash cycle are interrupted by depressing the (ES) Button, the operator must reset the button and push the Cycle Start button to continue operations from the beginning of the selected cycle. A Surgical Instrument Washer solid-state microcomputer control system monitors and automatically controls all process operations and functions. The Surgical Instrument Washer twelve-cycle treatment menu may be programmed and retained to permit operating personnel to accommodate a wide variety of loads and processing requirements. The Surgical Instrument Washer individual cycle phase times and temperatures and other key process parameters are programmable. Each cycle may be locked by supervision to ensure process integrity. The Cycle programming may be controlled by a supervisory access code. Each Surgical Instrument Washer cycle program may be reviewed on demand. The Surgical Instrument Washer standard treatment cycle consists of any or all of the following phases: Pre-wash, Wash, Rinse, Wash II, Rinse and Final Rinse. All Surgical Instrument Washercycle phases may be selected or deselected by the user. All Surgical Instrument Washer Wash and Rinses treatments are re-circulated under pump pressure except the optional non-re-circulated rinse. The cycle, once activated, is completely automatic. The Surgical Instrument Washer easily removable screens are provided to protect items and large debris from entering the recirculation system. The Surgical Instrument Washer Water from the last rinse cycle may be held and utilized as the pre-wash of the next cycle. The Surgical Instrument Washer operator may select to guarantee the temperatures for any re-circulated phase of the cycle. If the temperature guarantee is selected, the phase will not begin timing until the re-circulated water temperature reaches the set point. If the re-circulated temperature drops below the set point during the phase, the timer will stop. Once Surgical Instrument Washer set- point temperature is again met, the phase-timer continues from where it stopped thus assuring the set temperature during entire treatment phase time. The Surgical Instrument Washer operator loads the items to be cleaned in the wash chamber, closes the door, selects the proper cycle, and depresses the Cycle Start button. The washer proceeds through the treatment schedule and automatically shuts off at the completion of the cycle. The operator then opens door and removes the cleaned items.
Either Hot water from the house supply fills the sump, or Water remaining in the chamber sump from final rinse of the previous cycle is re-circulated through the jet system under pump pressure and pumped to drain upon completion. Phase is adjustable from 0 – 9999 seconds in 1-second intervals and 120F - 190F in 1 intervals.
Load is sprayed with either re-circulated or an OPTIONAL non-re-circulated sanitary water system. At the end of the treatment, the water may be retained in the chamber sump for use as the pre-wash water in the subsequent load or directed down the facility drain. The Re-circulated phase is adjustable from 0 – 9999 seconds in 1-second intervals and 120F - 190F in 1 intervals.
Surgical Instrument Washer Construction
The base, wash chamber and chamber sump are constructed of #304 Stainless Steel. The Washer frame and cabinet, door and hardware are #304 Stainless Steel. The Surgical Instrument Washer is provided with vertical sliding doors. The chamber door(s) are of double-wall construction A tempered double-pane, full view glass observation window is provided in each door. The Surgical Instrument Washer is insulated with a moisture resistant protective covering. The Surgical Instrument Washer chamber sump is equipped with a level control switch, automatic water fill port, and a stainless steel heating coil for the re-circulated treatment solutions. The control system displays and monitors re-circulated solution temperatures. Sump is completely drained after each phase, preventing cross-contamination between treatment phases and cycles. All re-circulated treatments are under pressure of a stainless steel 3Hp pump. This system is equipped with a solid state pressure sensor. The Surgical Instrument Washer is equipped with a transformer for the control circuit; integral Type-2 coordinated protective magnetic starters requiring no upstream fuses for overload protection of all motors, and all other electrical components required for the operation. An top-mounted light is provided to illuminate the wash chamber. The Surgical Instrument Washer is equipped with pneumatically actuated valves to control the output of the pump to the jet system. The Surgical Instrument Washer is inter-piped and inter-wired so that only one connection is required for each service or utility. The Surgical Instrument Washer is supplied with four (4) threaded detergent injection ports and electrical pump connections. Programming is in Military time and Fahrenheit temperature.
Accurate Surgical Instrument Washer Times and Temperatures are expressed in seconds and full-degree increments.
Surgical Instrument Washer Online Technical Support
A modem is provided for online service diagnostics, evaluations, and software upgrades. This system shall allow for immediate access to the unit’s control system by a factory service engineer. The factory trained personnel will have the ability to troubleshoot, identify system malfunctions, and recommend repairs to local maintenance personnel within minutes of a malfunction.
