Steriset® Sterilization Containers
Steriset is a unique container that does not require disposable filters and locks, thereby eliminating the labor and safety risks associated with paper filter containers and/or sterilization wrap.
From a financial aspect, Steriset offers up to 40% cost savings against competitor container systems by eliminating the need for disposable filters and locks. Against sterilization wrap, Steriset offers up to 75% cost savings.
Steriset containers are comprised of four main features to provide a completely closed system that is entirely tamper proof and hygienically secure.
- Double Lid Protection System - Steriset is a completely closed system that defends against external contaminants once sterilized. The outer lid is a solid aluminum shell that protects the stainless steel valve and provides complete hygienic security as an impermeable barrier to external contaminants.
- Reusable Stainless Steel Valve - Steriset is a unique sterilization container designed with a permanent reusable stainless steel valve. The valve opens/closes to allow steam to enter/exit based on the pressure differential during the sterilization cycle.
- Thermoloc Tamper-Proof Locking Mechanism - Steriset is designed with a self-locking mechanism that is truly tamper-proof. The Thermoloc® feature is a temperature-activated tab that descends during the sterilization cycle to block the latch mechanism from unlocking. Manually pushing the tab up allows for access to the container contents. Thermolocs cannot be manually operated, they only activate inside the sterilizer at high temperatures.
- Condensate Drain - Steriset is a sterilization container with a condensate drain feature. Heavier sets build up more sterile water during the sterilization cycle, so the condensate drain will automatically open/close during sterilization to drain excess water. This ensures a dry pack is achieved upon removal from the sterilizer.
