LOAD and UNLOAD Surgical Instrument Washer CONFIGURATION (select one):
The surgical instrument washer pass through load and unload The Surgical Instrument Washer is provided with an unload door and an additional cycle status indicator on the unload end, allowing one-way product flow from the contaminated area to the clean area. The Surgical Instrument Washer shall be provided with a combination of rotating jet spray and direct spindle spraying for all treatment solutions. The Surgical Instrument Washer spray system consists of a single rotating spray arm mounted above, and interchangeable spindle wash or a rotating jet spray arms mounted below for internal treatment of the racked items. The bottom header automatically couples to the re-circulated wash/rinse treatment system. The surgical instrument washer door(s) shall be provided with a full view, tempered, double glass viewing window.
The surgical instrument washer treatment components, including jet spray system, screens, pump, and recirculating piping are constructed of 304 stainless steel. Opening the surgical instrument washer load-end door (or unload-end if pass-through unit), automatically stops operation of the washer. The door(s) must be closed, alarm acknowledged, and the “Cycle Start” button depressed to continue operation. The surgical instrument washer Emergency Stop (ES) button is provided on the load-end control panel (and unload-end if pass-through unit). If the operations of the wash cycle are interrupted by depressing the (ES) Button, the operator must reset the button and push the Cycle Start button to continue operations from the beginning of the selected cycle. The surgical instrument washer solid-state microcomputer control system monitors and automatically controls all process operations and functions. The surgical instrument washer twelve-cycle treatment menu may be programmed and retained to permit operating personnel to accommodate a wide variety of loads and processing requirements. Individual cycle phase times and temperatures and other key process parameters are programmable. Each cycle may be locked by supervision to ensure process integrity. The Cycle programming may be controlled by a supervisory access code. Each cycle program may be reviewed on demand. The surgical instrument washer standard treatment cycle consists of any or all of the following phases: Pre-wash, Wash, Rinse, Wash II, Rinse and Final Rinse. All cycle phases may be selected or deselected by the user. All Wash and Rinses treatments are re-circulated under pump pressure except the optional non-re-circulated rinse. The surgical instrument washer cycle, once activated, is completely automatic. Located in the sump, easily removable screens are provided to protect items and large debris from entering the recirculation system. Water from the last rinse cycle may be held and utilized as the pre-wash of the next cycle. The surgical instrument washer operator may select to guarantee the temperatures for any re-circulated phase of the cycle. If the temperature guarantee is selected, the phase will not begin timing until the re-circulated water temperature reaches the set point. If the re-circulated temperature drops below the set point during the phase, the timer will stop. Once the set- point temperature is again met, the phase-timer continues from where it stopped thus assuring the set temperature during entire treatment phase time. The surgical instrument washer operator loads the items to be cleaned in the wash chamber, closes the door, selects the proper cycle, and depresses the Cycle Start button. The washer proceeds through the treatment schedule and automatically shuts off at the completion of the cycle. The operator then opens door and removes the cleaned items.
Surgical Instrument Washer PRE-WASH Either Hot water from the house supply fills the sump, or Water remaining in the chamber sump from final rinse of the previous cycle is re-circulated through the jet system under pump pressure and pumped to drain upon completion. Phase is adjustable from 0 – 9999 seconds in 1-second intervals and 120F - 190F in 1 intervals. Surgical Instrument Washer Hot water from the house supply fills the sump and is pumped through the jet system. As required, a specified amount of detergent is added during recirculation using the supplied, or customer supplied detergent injection pumps. At the end of the treatment, the detergent solution is pumped to drain. Phase is adjustable from 0 – 9999 seconds in 1-second intervals and 120F - 190F in 1 intervals. Surgical Instrument Washer RINSE Hot water from house supply fills the chamber sump and is re-circulated through the jet system under pump pressure to remove residual detergent. Re-circulated water is pumped to drain on completion of treatment. Surgical Instrument Washer Same as Detergent Wash phase – allowing a secondary detergent to be utilized. Surgical Instrument Washer Hot water from house supply fills the chamber sump and is re-circulated through the jet system under pump pressure to remove residual detergent. Re-circulated water is pumped to drain on completion of treatment.
The surgical instrument washer load is sprayed with either re-circulated or an OPTIONAL non-re-circulated sanitary water system. At the end of the treatment, the water may be retained in the chamber sump for use as the pre-wash water in the subsequent load or directed down the facility drain. The Re-circulated phase is adjustable from 0 – 9999 seconds in 1-second intervals and 120F - 190F in 1 intervals. The base, wash chamber and chamber sump are constructed of #304 Stainless Steel.
