What is Steam Sterilisation?

Steam sterilisation, a method of achieving Medical Equipment Sterilisation, involves exposing items to saturated steam under pressure. This process enhances heat’s effectiveness in destroying microorganisms, reducing the time and temperature required to denature proteins. The steam’s quality varies based on the application and industry.

While there are various sterilisation methods, the use of moist heat forming saturated steam under pressure is common and reliable.

Where to use Steam Sterilisation?

Steam sterilisation through autoclaves is versatile, serving industries like Healthcare, Laboratory, and Life Science. Each sector has specific sterilisation levels for daily operations. In Healthcare, steam for processing medical instruments must comply with EN285 and HTM01-01.

Other sectors, like Laboratories or Biomedical facilities, have more flexibility in steam quality, often opting for process steam from lower-grade water.

Steam Quality considerations include non-condensable gases, Steam Dryness, and Super Heat levels.

The optimal composition of steam is 3% liquid and 97% gas—any change in the percentage of moisture increases or decreases sterilisation time. In practice, sterilisation time is calculated according to optimum steam conditions and steam’s ability to transfer energy to the non-sterile load prior to sterilisation.
