Product Description This 2010 Primus stainless steel single door sterilizer includes Sussman ES-24 boiler as well as autoclave loading cart. Also includes vacuum, gravity, liquids, and test/vac cycles. For surgical packs, select one of the vacuum cycles. For the sterilization of liquids in open or vented containers, select a liquid cycle. The sliding door design reduces the high service cost associated with conventional hinged arm doors and provides an added margin of operator safety. PRIMUS vertically operating doors operate with minimal hand pressure.
A PSS500 microcomputer will offer a selection of eight separate programs for the sterilization of wrapped goods, hard-goods, liquids and test cycles. Cycle parameters may be set by the user and are adaptable to a wide range of products. Alarms are annunciated, displayed and printed. Cycle process parameters will be displayed and recorded throughout the cycle. A side-mounted control panel and a thermal printer dot-matrix technology, with no moving parts in the print head, and 32 characters per line printing. A copy of the sterilization cycle will be available at the end of the run.

WATER FEED SYSTEM: Strainer, solenoid valve and check valve factory wired and plumbed.
LOW WATER CUT-OFF/LEVEL CONTROL: McDonnell Miller No.150 control automatically maintains proper water level, shutting off the boiler when water supply in the boiler drops below a safe operating level.
WATER LEVEL SIGHT GLASS: Allows constant observation of water level while boiler is in operation.
MAIN ON/OFF SWITCH: Allows manual operation of the boiler operating control circuit.
PILOT LIGHT: Indicates control circuit's on/off condition.
INTEGRAL POWER CONTACTORS: Magnetic contactors for energizing the boiler elements. Integrally mounted in the control unit
BLOWDOWN/DRAIN VALVES: Facilitates emptying the boiler pressure vessel and MM150 water column piping during blowdown sequence.
LONG LIFE HEATING ELEMENTS: Industrial grade, heavy duty 0.420 inch diameter stainless steel heating elements,equipped with one piece resistance welded terminations for added strength and safety.
OPERATING PRESSURE CONTROL: Resets automatically to maintain preset pressure within boiler.
ENERGY SAVINGS AND MINIMUM MAINTENANCE: Pressure vessel insulation minimizes heat loss and maximizes energy savings, insured by fibrous glass material.
EASY CONTROL MAINTENANCE: All control panels and components are easily accessible. Fully-louvered openings avoid component heat build-up.
NEMA 1 Louvered enclosure standard
