The Getinge 433HC Vacuum/Gravity Steam Sterilizers employ both gravity/downward displacement with positive pulse conditioning and pressure/vacuum pulsing for dynamic air removal. Up to 22 cycles can be easily accessed in two easy steps. Custom cycle names can be designated for each cycle and re-ordered for easy access. All cycle phases are sequenced and monitored by the control system, providing both audible and visual notification of deviation from key operating parameters.

The 433HC is ideal for general-purpose gravity or vacuum steam sterilization of hospital instruments and supplies. The selectable temperature range is from 230°F to 275°F (110°C to 135°C) and from 219°F to 275°F (104°C to 135°C) for liquid cycles. Applications include wrapped and unwrapped porous and non-porous hard goods, gowns or towel packs and liquids in self-venting or unsealed containers. The liquid exhaust is microcomputer controlled for linear and consistent liquid cool down, programmable within a specified range.

Getinge Sterilizers employ a Hitachi 20 MHz microprocessor on a dedicated controller (CPU) with 8 MB of RAM. The control panel consists of an operator interface panel (called OP30), a thermal printer, mechanical chamber and jacket pressure gauges, status indicators, active touch sensitive switches, and controls On/Off switch. Controls are located above the door for convenience. An internal deflection barrier routes steam vapor and moisture away from the door and behind the electronic controls to maintain temperatures at or below temperature limits. The OP30 user interface panel is a durable 1/4 VGA 5.7” diagonal color screen with 320 x 240 pixels. Below the screen are five soft keys to access other screens or displays and to make changes to cycle parameters.

Audible and visible operator feedback is provided when a selection is made, or a fault message is displayed. Temperature can be set, controlled, and displayed in degrees Celsius or Fahrenheit and pressure in psia, bar or kPa.

The chamber drain is continuously monitored for the presence of water during a cycle. If water is detected and cannot be automatically corrected, a high-water alarm alerts the user.

All of our equipment is used and reconditioned. Our technicians test all equipment to confirm that it operates properly and to the manufacturer’s specifications. While we can’t test for a specific analytical application, we will do our best to simulate the conditions under which the equipment will be run. If you have particular testing requirements or requests please let us know and we’ll work with you to make sure these requirements are addressed during testing.

The photos above are representative. Please bear in mind that the equipment shown is currently in storage in our warehouse and that in addition to testing each machine we will clean all the equipment thoroughly prior to shipment. We often have multiple units of each model in stock and sometimes we're unable to feature photos of every single unit. At your request, we can provide photos of the equipment in your order after it has been tested and cleaned.
