Autoclave Validation & Calibration

Autoclave revalidation is a process to determine that the autoclave recorded values (indicated data) and indication values (display data), are within a ‘tolerance’ of independent UKAS calibrated validation equipment (measured data).  A report is provided to prove that the autoclave instrumentation is accurate, that there is sufficient chamber integrity, and that the performance of steam penetration is satisfactory. The revalidation of sterilizers is carried out in accordance to the manufacturers ‘Schedule of Periodic Testing’ and is in compliance with HTM 01-05.

Anaesthetic Calibration

Certified and calibrated anaesthetic gas analysers are used by Dentalex engineers at point of service to ensure gas flow rates are within tolerance. This data is incorporated into the service certification.

Pressure System Examinations

Dentalex can offer ‘Written Schemes of Examination’ and ‘Pressure System Examinations’ for your autoclave in accordance with PSSR2000 (Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000; Statutory Instrument 128).  A ‘Written Scheme of Examination’ is a document containing information about selected items equipment which form a pressure system, operate under pressure and contain a ‘relevant fluid’ – this includes steam ‘at any pressure’.   ‘Pressure System Examinations’ are carried out periodically in accordance with the WSoE to ensure the system is safe for continued use.
