WHAT IS A ROTOCLAVE® AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Rotoclave ® system is a unique system that uses an ASME (also available in CE and MOL) steam pressure vessel with a unique rotating internal drum to not just decontaminate or disinfect, but to sterilize waste materials. The Rotoclave ® is designed to accept various waste materials in open or unopened containers and subjects them to agitation, heat, and moisture.
Standard autoclaves cannot guarantee that the steam will interact with the entire waste stream. Even after stationary autoclaving, it is more than likely that some waste has not been sterilized. The Rotoclave's combination of high temperature, pressure, and moisture, in conjunction with the unique method of agitation, ensures all materials will contact the necessary sterilizing steam.
