How are Parker autoclave engineers fittings marked?
All Parker Autoclave Engineers fittings are marked with manufacturers name, part number, material, heat code and maximum pressure for complete traceability. Fittings and Tubing High Pressure Cone Thread
What is an autoclave manifold?
Parker Autoclave Engineers will design and build pressure manifolds to meet specific installation, layout and pressure requirements. These manifolds are capable of withstanding pressures from vacuum to 60,000 psi (4137 bar), and are available in a variety of materials and sizes.
What types of pressure connections can be incorporated into an autoclave?
Among the pressure connections that can be incorporated are Parker Autoclave Engineers鈥?low, medium and high pressure, NPT, SAE, BSP and others. Transitions in system line sizes and tubing pressure series can be accomplished through a specialty manifold.
What is the principle of autoclave?
Figure: Autoclave Principle or Working. The autoclave works on the principle of moist heat sterilization where steam under pressure is used to sterilize the material present inside the chamber. The high pressure increases the boiling point of water and thus helps achieve a higher temperature for sterilization.
