Autoclaves vary in size, shape and functionality. A very basic autoclave is similar to a pressure cooker; both use the power of steam to kill bacteria, spores and germs resistant to boiling water and powerful detergents. One of the things that sets steam autoclaves apart from other sterilizers is its automatic lock feature. Since an autoclave is a sterilizer, its purpose is like sterilizers-to kill or remove all forms of life on an object's surface such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, and spores.
While autoclaves solely utilize steam to disinfect, other sterilizers can use chemicals, high pressure, filtration, irritation, or a combination of these methods to eliminate living organisms. Not all sterilizers can be autoclaves sterilizers because not every device can withstand the high temperatures needed to kill every organism. If someone was to use a different type of equipment the material could melt and morph making it unusable.
An autoclave chamber sterilizes medical or laboratory instruments by heating them above the boiling point. Krew Instruments Pvt Ltd’s have tabletop as well as large autoclaves which can process numerous surgical instruments in a single sterilization cycle, meeting the ongoing demand for sterile equipment in operating rooms and emergency wards.
