High Capacity Ultrasonic Treatment Solution
US 1000 is an ultrasonic cleaner designed to meet the cleaning challenges of the increasing complexity of your CSSD.
The device conveniently integrates surgical instruments’ ultrasonic cleaning function into an automated CSSD reprocessing solution.
Available as a single or double automatic sliding up door, the device is capable of processing up to 18 DIN 1/1 net baskets and the whole cart is submerged during the ultrasonic treatment process. US 1000 features a chemical and steam disinfection version.
Thanks to the chamber light, it is easy to monitor the whole process.
US 1000 shares its washing carts with CSSD washers like DS 1000 and TW 3000, a feature that makes this ultrasonic cleaner easy to integrate into an automated system of loading and unloading of racks coming from a pre-wash device and destined to an ATS – Automatic Transfer System.
US 1000 is the ideal pre-cleaning ultrasonic washing system to be integrated in a CSSD.
Easy loading – especially through the Flexible Loading System – and the possibility to integrate the device with automations make the workflow faster and error-proof.
US 1000 has been designed to be integrated into high-capacity automated washer systems, between a pre-washing unit and automatically-loaded washers to reduce total cycle time.
Automatic Transfer and Pre-Wash
US 1000 ultrasonic cleaner can be integrated in a small automated tunnel alongside the ATS shuttle in order to operate a pre-wash and ultrasonic wash in the two-chamber tunnel.
After the pre-wash stage, the wash cart is moved to the second chamber, which performs the ultrasonic cleaning. At the end of the ultrasonic bath, the ATS shuttle sorts the basket in the first available washer in the barrier.
This configuration is specially designed for those processing departments where time is critical. Its high flexibility and modularity make it a perfect solution for optimal workflow regardless of the facility’s size.
A full range of equipment
To respond to the various needs of different hospitals and Centralized Sterile Supply Departments (CSSDs), Steelco developed a full range of ultrasonic cleaners.
Choose the best solution based on capacity – from 10 liters to 18 DIN baskets per cycle – or on instruments to clean, e.g. complex cannulated instruments, rigid endoscopes, and other medical devices.
A user-friendly cloud-based web interface showing real time device status. It can be connected to all Steelco devices in a CSSD, thus enabling to check the entire reprocessing steps.
Staff are able to access it anywhere there is an internet connection and a Windows- or iOS-based device, with different authorization levels. It is intuitive to use with 24/7 technical support availability in multiple languages.
Optimal Performance with Steelco Chemicals
The independently validated results achieved by Steelco ultrasonic units are strictly linked to the use of Steelco Chemicals, which provide cost-effective rapid cycles. Using non-validated chemistries contravenes standards, can compromise cycle efficacy, decontamination, and may cause damage to both equipment and instrumentation.
A centralized chemical dispensing system implies cost reduction; no more need to replace small containers; risk reduction of incorrect product selection and operator exposure to spillages; the constant monitoring of consumption and of the remaining volume of chemical minimizing the risk of downtime.
Up to 18 DIN 1/1 net baskets per washing cycle.
Design and Safety
High-quality stainless steel AISI 316L washing tank and stainless steel AISI 304 external body for long-term reliability and cleanliness.
An integrated system for automatic and programmable thermal chamber disinfection is available.
Ultrasonic power 4000 W – 38 kHz. Radio frequency interference filter and power control from 0% to 100% included.
PLC microprocessor control system with high storage capacity for washing programs. Auto diagnosis function for easy technical support.
7" User-Friendly HMI
7” touch-screen color display with complete information on system functioning status, alarms, and residual cycle time highlight.
Automations are key to save time whilst minimizing workflow interruption.
Steelco automated systems range from loading and unloading to recognizing instruments and packing them. They optimize labor usage and speed up the instrument reprocessing workflow. Moreover, few manual handling makes it possible to free up staff for other important tasks.
Flexible Loading System
Customize your wash cart levels through Flexible Loading System. It allows the preparation of instruments in single modules and facilitates the loading of the trolley, improving security and ergonomics.

The pre-cleaning area or “soiled area” of a Central Sterile Supply Department (CSSD) is the area where contaminated or soiled items are received, sorted, and prepared for the decontamination process.
To support operators in the pre-cleaning process, Steelco designs and manufactures specific equipment and automations.
