Water is one of the most efficient media for heat transfer for different presuppose. The water boils at 1000C and is converted into steam. This steam can be used for many different applications. One of the most common application of this steam is for moist heat sterilization.

Water is one of the most efficient media for heat transfer for different presuppose. The water boils at 1000C and is converted into steam. This steam can be used for many different applications. One of the most common application of this steam is for moist heat sterilization. In moist heat sterilization, objects are sterilized using pressurized steam with high temperature. When water is boiler under pressure in a closed vessel such as autoclaves, it creates saturated steam. The saturated steam can be of two types that are wet steam containing some water droplets or Dry steam free from any droplets.

Using saturated steam for sterilization is best for the article that is being sterilized as saturated steam gives a high amount of latent heat to the article and helps in easy sterilization. The Moist heat sterilization is done by two methods. One is without pressure and the second is pressurized moist steam sterilization. Without pressure, the process is done with the help of boiling water or providing mild health to the products. When provided 100 degree Celsius temperature for 30 minutes, it can kill everything except endospores.

The pressurized moist heat sterilization is done with the help of closed vessels called Autoclaves. These instruments are designed to provide extremely saturated steam with very high temperatures. These instruments are widely used in the medical facilities for the purpose of sterilization of the medical equipment. It is used for sterilization of bio-hazardous products, glassware, surgical equipment and several other products.

The Autoclaves offered by Presto are designed to provide the best conditions for effective moist heat sterilization that can be used for sterilization of different products in medical facilities and other industries.
