The Trans Smart is a fully automatic steam sterilizer. It has pre-set programs for the most common sterilization processes for generalpurpose hospital use. The program cycles employ mechanical air removal with a series of vacuum/pressure pulses to effectively remove air for assured sterilization. The chamber dimensions are adapted to sterilization, using wire baskets according to ISO and STU or containers according to DIN.
General-purpose steam sterilization of surgical instruments, textiles and hospital utensils in central sterilization departments, operation departments and laundries. The temperature range is from 121°C–135°C.
The sterilizer chamber, jacket and door are made from solid, high quality type AISI 316 L/ W.Nr.1.4404 stainless steel. Internal surfaces are treated with glass blasting to facilitate cleaning.
The sterilizer chamber is completely insulated with a 30-80 mm chloride free mineral wool, encased in a rigid removable aluminum sheet housing. The cham- ber is mounted on a stainless steel framework with adjustable feet.
VALIDATION CONNECTIONS The chamber is provided with one 1/2″ threaded con- nection for optional vacuum/pressure gauge (PT) and a 1″ connection for temperature test sensor (TT) on the left side as seen from control side. .
AUTOMATIC, VERTICALLY SLIDING DOOR (S) The door is fully automatic in operation and is raised and lowered by a motor. Door operation is controlled via push buttons on the control panel. The door is automatically sealed. Doors can not be open during the cycle. The gasket is a silicon rubber ‘O’ ring. In the beginning of a process, the gasket is pressed against the rear face of the door by air. At the end of the process, the gasket is retracted by vacuum and the door on the unloading side is opened by a motor with gear box.
MECHANICAL VACUUM PUMP
A highly efficient liquid ring vacuum pump, mounted on vibration isolators for quiet operation, is provided to effectively remove air from within the chamber. The vacuum pump is connected in series to assist air removal and protect the vacuum pump from excessive temperatures. The vacuum pump is protected with a low water alarm on the service water.
VALVES & COMPONENTS
All process valves are pneumatically operated piston valves, providing longer service life and less mainte- nance.All standard components are non-proprietary and easily sourced. Hot pipes are thermally insulated
An automatic, integral, electrically heated steam generator mounted under the sterilizer chamber. The integral steam generator pressure vessel is made of stainless steel, insulated with 50 mm chloride free mineral wool enclosed in a rigid removable alumin- ium sheet housing. The heating elements are made of stainless steel.
PIPES & VALVES
All piping and valves are made of stainless steel.
The Siemens modular PLC control system dedi- cated to controlling of Trans sterilizers, including:
Digital inputs and outputs for sterilizer
Control Analog measuring inputs
COM ports for printer & PC communication
The Siemens controls all system functions, moni- tors system operations, both visually and audibly alerts the operator of cycle malfunctions and, on demand, provides visual indication of the chamber temperature and pressure.
