Air turbines, contra-angles, and other dynamic dental instruments consist of high-precision micro mechanisms and therefore benefit from careful sterilisation to maintain performance. NSK choose to use a highly conductive copper chamber to satisfy Class B, Europe’s strictest sterilisation standard. The system delivers outstanding efficiency despite its large capacity.
Tired of Breakdowns?
Deploying a Copper Chamber to Match the Advanced Class B Cycle Sterilisation Capacity and Efficiency Standards
20% more capacity than conventional autoclaves
The iClave plus can fully use its 18 litre capacity because it maintains even temperatures throughout the autoclave chamber and constantly controls the surface temperature. The iClave plus offers 20% more sterilisation space than a conventional stainless steel chamber of the same size, ensuring greater safety by reducing instrument overcrowding.
Highly thermal conductive copper chamber with even temperatures
Using copper to construct the chamber gives 18 times more heat conductivity than stainless steel. The copper chamber retains even internal temperature levels throughout despite its large capacity.
Advanced heating system leveraging excellent thermal conductivity
NSK’s innovative heating system optimises the high heat conductivity of copper. Enveloping the copper chamber is a special heater which is also used in satellites, incorporating electro-thermal material embedded in silicone to heat the entire chamber evenly without heat loss.
NSK autoclave benefits include combining high heat conductivity of copper chamber with proprietary heating system
The copper chamber and adaptive heat system allows sterilisation in 18 and 35 minutes under Class S and B standards, respectively. (Including drying phase.)
In a conventional chamber, uneven temperatures cause condensation inside instruments, reducing drying efficiency. This issue is almost non-existent in the iClave plus when temperatures rise or fall.
A key factor in the greater efficiency of the iClave plus is that it can sterilize more instruments at a time. The iClave plus also lowers environmental impact because it consumes less electricity and water.
Consistently even internal temperatures resulting from the use of a copper chamber and the adaptive heat system make it possible to control steam flow and eliminate heat fluctuations. With less thermal impact, sterilization of air turbines, contra-angles and other instruments is gentler and safer.
