To study heat distribution in the chamber of DHS using probes with data logger.
To ensure proper heat distribution in the chamber of dry heat sterilizer with load using data logger.
3.1 Doing : Engineering department
3.2 Checking : Executive /Manager
Head of the Department
Frequency : Once in a Year
5.1 Load the DHS with the glassware and accessories to be sterilized.
5.2 Put six calibrated flexible probes in the DHS as per location chart attached.5.3 Connect the flexible probes to the recorder of data logger & set the record interval 10 minute.
5.4 Operate the DHS as per SOP.
5.5 Note down the validation parameters and sterilization cycle details like time,temperature etc. in annexure – I.
5.6 After completion of DHS cycle, note down the hottest location and coldest location in temperature record for DHS in annexure II .
5.7 Record the reading of each probe temperature kept inside DHS and temperature on digital temperature indicator at every 10 minute interval in annexure –II till completion of sterilization cycle.
5.8 Attach the data logger print out with Annexure II data.
Acceptance criteria : Temperature at each point must reach 180 °C +10 °C.
6.1 oC = Degree centigrade
6.2 DHS= Dry heat sterilization
