Sterilizer Manufacturer:
Barnstead International
Model of Sterilizer:
Chemiclave EC 5500
Problem Title:
when pressurizing, chemiclave goes to purge
Problem Description:
When the knob is turned to pressurize for a cycle, the buzzer goes off and the light turns to purge. Chemiclave must then be depressurized and purged for 7 minutes and the cycle has not been run. Sometimes it will happen again and other times it will run through a full cycle. Spore tests have passed. I do not know why the chemiclave does this and wondered if anyone else has had this happen.
