Steam Quality Testing

The only references to the frequency of steam, quality testing are to be found in HTM 2010, where it is indicated that steam quality should be tested as part of the annual revalidation exercise for each sterilizer. Where steam systems are either routinely or irregularly shut down, large quantities of air will be present in the distribution system on restarting. It is recommended that in such circumstances a comprehensive and validated venting procedure should be applied and testing for non-condensable gases is appropriate.

The Pitot Tube is an essential part of the superheat test and the dryness fraction test. All other parts are standard laboratory supplies, which are available from your local laboratory supplier. It is the lack of these parts which forces many companies to contract out the Steam Quality tests, well now you can bring these tests under your own control. These parts are manufactured to a design approved and used by the NHS.

All the operator has to do is use the auto fill function to personalize the PQ, then follow through the detailed test methods recording the results as they go.
A continuous supply of saturated steam is required for steam sterilization. Too high a level of non condensable gases will prevent the attainment of sterilization; too little moisture carried in suspension may allow the steam to become superheated during expansion into the chamber, while excess moisture may cause damp loads. Where steam systems are either routinely or irregularly shut down, large quantities of air will be present in the distribution system on restarting. It is recommended that in such circumstances a comprehensive and validated venting procedure should be applied and testing for steam quality is appropriateFor Steam Quality Validation.
