Process and equipment in sterilization


*We prep all implants used in any given procedure by placing them under running water for about 30sec.

*Then we presoak all implants in a chemical bath until the tools are ready to be placed inside the hydrim.

The Hydrim

*After the first two steps of tool processing, the hydrum can be useful for the following :

*It eliminates the potential dangers and disaster which can arise in tool scrubbing.

*It cuts down a large amount of time the operator must be in contact with any potential biohazard

*The Hydim also has a dry cycle which ensures your tools are clean and dry before being bagged and sterilized.


How the hydrim pulls debris from the tools


Cassette and Chamber Autoclaves

*What are the differences in gravity displacement autoclaves.

*Such as Type N, Type S, and positive displacement.

*What are the benefit and drawbacks?


Gravity displacement autoclaves or Type N.

*These autoclave our the most commonly used in the tattoo and piercing community.

*The name refers to the way air is removed from the chamber.

*This design of autoclave generally has a heating element in the bottom of the autoclave chamber, along with a fill hole that transfers water from a reservoir to the autoclave chamber.

*The benefit of this type of autoclave is it's simplicity along with being very cost effective.


Positive Pressure Displacement Autoclave

*The positive pressure displacement autoclave improves on the design of a gravity displacement autoclave by creating the steam in a separate internal unit or "steam generator”

*The steam needed to displace air builds in a separate chamber which opens the check valve and a pressurized burst of steam enters the autoclave chamber, this resulting in a higher percentage of air from the chamber which decreases autoclave cycle times.

*Drawbacks high initial cost and a smaller chamber or cassette


Negative pressure displacement Autoclaves or Type S

*The negative pressure displacement unit is able to achieve a highest "Sterility Assurance Level" (SAL)

*The main difference in this type of autoclave: is when the chamber is closed a vacuum pump removes all the air form the chamber and then the pressurized steam is injected into the chamber.

*These also have filtered dry cycles which allows for the packages to completely dry before entering ambient air.

*Drawbacks size of unit and high initial cost


Aquastat and Condensation Cubes

  • The Aquastat is used to turn tap water into distilled water, while the Condensation Cubes neatly dispose of the waste water from the back of the Statim

  • Both are relatively cheat and have a great upside.

  • Simple construction so very durable

  • Both are self-contained units meaning no wiring and just a little plumbing for the cubes
