Low Temperature Vaporized H2O2 Sterilizers - High Capacity.
PL 130 is a low-temperature sterilization system with a chamber capacity of up to 148 litres / 5.21 cu ft. This device is designed for the terminal sterilization of packaged medical devices such as surgical instrumentation sensitive to heat and humidity. It is suitable for surgical instruments in metal, metal alloys, light non-metallic alloys, micro-surgery instruments, instruments with lumen with a maximum length of up to 2200 mm / 86.6″ and a minimum diameter of up to 0,5 mm / 0.02″. Vaporized hydrogen peroxide sterilization with SteelcoPro PL sterilizing agent is safe, fast, and environmentally friendly – operating with low pressure and low temperature for protecting instruments and reducing energy consumption.
Available as single door or double door versions, it is equipped with an automatic space-saving sliding door. PL 130 is controlled by a PLC digital microprocessor with a 10″ color touch screen HMI. Loading and unloading operations can be done at an ergonomic height. The loading height is ergonomically placed at 920 mm / 36.22″.
Five high-performance work cycles are programmed at the factory, validated, and available for running from the control panel:
- Fast | Dedicated to non-lumened instruments with and without articulations;
- Flex | For flexible endoscopes, including DaVinci® instruments;
- Standard | For mixed loads: flexible, rigid, and semi-rigid lumens and non-lumened instruments;
- Intensive | For mixed loads: flexible, rigid, and semi-rigid lumens and non-lumened instruments with more challenging dimensions;
- Superfast | Ultra-fast cycle for reduced loads that can be activated as an option on all models of the PL range.
Ergonomic Safe Opening
An ergonomic touch screen panel control or a foot pedal allows the operator to open and close the door automatically, avoiding any physical contact for the staff.
RFID Cartridge with Poka-Yoke Design
The single-use cartridge (one cycle) avoids any waste due to the short expiry time of the sterilant after loading in the machine. The cartridge is equipped with an RFID identifier to prevent reuse, incorrect re-filling, or use after the expiry date, providing information on production batch, expiry date, and H2O2 quantity. Ergonomic front-loading cartridge system with “poka-yoke” design.
Process Quality Focus
Ensuring efficiency and safety in every step of the sterilization process is fundamentally important. With these aims, the Steelco PL range features a wide selection of tools: a humidity level check performed at the beginning of each cycle control the humidity level and remove excess moisture; continuous monitoring of the process, with chamber pressure and temperature monitoring by redundant sensors, ensures optimal performance; an external plasma-phase generator system guarantees better protection of the reprocessed instruments.
Biological & Chemical Indicators
For assuring a safe sterilization process, Steelco provides a comprehensive assortment of chemical and biological indicators, including rapid read solutions. Within the range, packing tape and incubators. Rapid Read Incubator features as a standard feature a dedicated traceability software with the aim of recording all the results of self-contained biological indicators (SCBIs) with fluorescence readout. The system allows also a paper printout on the incubator that can be eventually linked to the sterilizer printout in a manual process.
Control System and Traceability
The large 10″ touchscreen control panel facilitates device control with bright, easy-to-read information, offering an intuitive and practical aid for operators in their daily tasks. An integrated thermal printer provides cycle data storage; if connected to the network, easy integration with Steelco Data Live & Pro, our management & traceability software suite.
The sliding door solution of the PL 130 allows reducing space in the clean area in favor of packaging and easier loading/unloading of the instruments.
Excellent penetration into hollow instruments: Lumens: Ø ≥ 0.5 length ≤ 2200 mm, with single, double, and triple channels.
The models of the PL series are all Plug & Play, ready to be started quickly in any location.
Loading flexibility thanks to chamber modularity with semi-extractable shelves and a perfect range of accessories, including baskets and inserts.
Hydrogen Peroxide emissions are up to 70 times lower than the most restrictive guidelines thanks to the triple safety system for reducing H2O2 release: plasma generator, catalyzed converter, and an active carbon filter.
RFID or Barcode Recognition
All the devices have the option of the Barcode or RFID scanner for easy and quick recognition of the operator and the load.
