Heat Distribution Testing Service

Maintain your sterilizer’s operation and accuracy with an empty chamber heat distribution test from STERIS. These tests identify any areas with temperature deviations or that are slow-to-heat. Whether you’re validating your equipment, replacing a process control instrument, or want to ensure your sterilizer is functioning properly, this test optimizes your sterilizer’s cycle time.

We will customize your service to ensure it meets your specifications. At the conclusion of your testing, you will receive a final report containing:

  • Interpreted information about data collected
  • Calibration certificates for the equipment
  • Graphs and charts for each qualification cycle

Your heat distribution testing service also includes a full NIST-traceable calibration.

Steam Quality Testing Service

Stay compliant with international standards HTM0101 and EN285 by testing your autoclave’s steam quality. Whether your company or your specific products are required to meet international standards for steam sterilization, steam quality testing will verify if you are yielding proper results.

Steam quality testing consists of three tests – steam dryness, steam superheat and non-condensable gas. Our expert team of service technicians performs each test using documented procedures based on international standards, and each series of tests is performed three times to verify repeatable results. Testing can be performed over either one day or three days, depending on your needs.
