Instructions for use:
Cylindrical container used to sterilise dressing materials (gauze compress or cotton etc.)in a steam sterilizer (autoclave), and to keep them as "sterile" dressing materials for medical activities(i.e: dressing, injection etc.).
Open air vents system for sterilisation process.
When the sterilisation cycle is completed, close air vents system immediately when the drum is removed from the autoclave.
Do not stuff the drum full with compress or cotton, as the pressurised steam will not be able to penetrate into the centre and therefore not sterilise.
The size has been chosen as being the most commonly used for the purpose of use.
The sizes have been chosen taking into consideration different types of steam sterilizers (capacity and internal dimensions), in which this container will be used, to optimize sterilisation activities.
