The Importance of Load Temperature Measurement In Autoclaves

Measuring load temperatures in autoclaves.

It is important to be able to track the temperature of the load, so most manufacturers will either include a load probe as standard or offer one as an option. The load probe ensures that the load receives the correct exposure time at the sterilizing temperature and should also prevent the door from opening unless the chamber/load has reached a safe pressure/temperature, (normally 80ºC or below).
