Typical loads where a jacket would be required for drying include wrapped instruments or porous fabrics. Heated jackets are available on all Astell autoclaves over 95 litres withÂ integral steam generatorsÂ or with aÂ direct steam supply. They add a secondary external layer to the autoclave allowing steam to circulate outside the sterilization chamber whilst insulating the main vessel. When a jacket is fitted, its effect is two-fold.
Firstly, when sterilizing fabrics and porous loads, the jacket is kept constantly heated which means that the chamber maintains a residual temperature between cycles, avoiding excessive condensate forming inside the chamber and wetting the load when steam enters the vessel. Secondly, after preventing condensation forming at the beginning of a cycle, at the end of a cycle the jacket stays running during a final vacuum, which then evaporates any remaining liquid, allowing porous loads to be touch dry when they are removed at the end of the cycle.
