• Safety Devices
Languages Numerous safety features including: a safety valve, thermostat,
The operator panel is set up with following standard languages temperature sensors, a water detection electrode in the steam
(maximum 5 languages per Sterilizer): generator, a pressure sensor, a safety pressure release valve,
a door locking device and software safety features.
• Door locking mechanism – The door system is automatic and
is based on a special locking device. The system is based on
two moving tongues located in the door pushed into a house
attached to the chamber.
The closing device prevents an incidental opening of the door if
there is pressure in the chamber. The moving tongues are
located in a slightly negative angle, in order to prevent shearing
off. The opening of the door can be done electrically only, in
case of power fail, the user can’t open the door without a
special tool.

The door system includes:

 Mechanical locking (2 tongues in two sides)

 Safety plate below the tongue on closing position, to hold
the tongues against shearing. • Operation – Operating is simple: close the door, select the
