A NOTE
a When sterilizing an empty deep container, lay it on its side in the working chamber so that it
will be permeated with steam. An upright position may cause insufficient sterilization.
If a waste disposal bag is used in sterilization, open the bag far enough that the bag is not in
contact with the inside surface of the working chamber. Insufficient sterilization may be
caused if the bag is closed during sterilization. When the bag is opened excessively, steam is
prevented fromcirculating in the working chamber. This may also result in insufficient
sterilization.
Do not pile specimens on top of one another. When the chamber is overly packed, steam fails
to penetrate to all points, resulting in incomplete sterilization.
0
In sterilizing liquids such as chemical and medium, pay attention to the quantity of the liquid
in relation to its container. For an Erlenmeyer flask, the amount of chemical should be approx.
314 of the capacity of the container; for a test tube, the appropriate quantity of chemical is
approx. half of the capacity of the container. Too much chemical may result in overflow from
the container during the temperature rising or cooling process.
When using a container, loosen the cap or use a breathable cap. An unbreathable cap may
cause the container to burst.
In the case of liquefaction of agar medium, its quantity should be 2 liters or less per container.
Two liters or more of agar medium ,may not be completely liquefied.

If halfway you desire to cancel the setting change, press the MODE
switch. The changed value is not stored, and the equipment returns to a
standby state.
NOTE
For sterilization of liquid, set a sterilization time longer than desired, taking delay time into
account and referring to the table below.
Example) In case there is 3 liters of water in a flask, it takes nearly 30 minutes (delay time) for
temperature of water in the container to reach a set sterilization temperature after
temperature in the working chamber reaches the set value. You should set a sterilization
time 30 minutes longer than desired to cope with this delay of time. Therefore, the set
sterilization is 50 minutes:
Set sterilization time (50 minutes)
= Delay time (30 minutes) + desired sterilization time (20 minutes)

If steam is abruptly exhausted after sterilization of liquid, the liquid may gush out. To prevenl
this, set the opening of the exhaust valve (Exhaust %) to a small value to gradually exhaust.
Or, set that to 0% (spontaneous cooling).
When used with a sterilization can, it takes several hours for the temperature in waste disposal
bag to reach the set temperature after the temperature in the working chamber (displayed
temperature) reaches the set value (time lag).
If there is approx. 300 - 500 milliliters of water in the waste disposal bag, steam is generated in
the bag and drives the air out. This will significantly reduce the time lag at the time of
temperature rise. Refer to the table below and take this time lag into account when setting the
fertilization time.

13. Operation of Cycles
Illumination circled
Turn-on Timer On Cycle --- Common to a11 the modes
(with the turn-on timer set)
The digital display section illuminate in a circular
manner until the time set on the turn-on timer (preset
time of operation start-up) is reached.
When the time set on the turn-on timer is reached, the TIMER digital goes off, and operation
proceeds to the next cycle.
Air Evacuation Cycle --- Mode 1,2 and 3
The ST-BYdisplay stops flickering and lights up; then the BIEATG goes off and start
flickering. The temperature in the working chamber is displayed in the digital temperature
display section.
Any air remaining in the working chamber makes the temperature distribution in the chamber
uneven. This hinders temperature rise (sterilization). To cope with this, a microcomputer-controlled automatic exhaust valve vents virtually 100% of the air.
Temperature rises until a set sterilization temperature (pressure) is reached.
After the set sterilization temperature is attained, the WIEATG stops flickering and lights up.
Operation proceeds to the next step.
81 Sterilization Cycle --- Modes 1, 2 and 3
Sterilization temperature display

If the temperature in the working chamber drops
Temperature over-drop ma&
1"C or more from the set value due to any trouble, the
temperature over-drop mark appears on the digital display, and the digital timer operation is
interrupted. When the set temperahre is regained, the timer restarts operation.
The digital timer displays the remaining time during the sterilization cycle. Refer to "Checking
Set Values during Operation" on page 19 for the method of checking the set time during
operation.
When the preset sterilization time has passed, the STIER. display stops flickering and lights up,
and operation proceeds to the next cycle.
0
In sterilization of petri dishes or empty containers, the air remaining in the container expands
and may increase the pressure extraordinarily within the working chamber. If the pressure in
the working chamber exceeds the saturated steam pressure, the automatic exhaust valve opens
and.discharges the air in the chamber into the exhaust bottle.
Valve Opening Variable Cycle --- Modes 1 and 2 .
The IEXWT. display goes out and starts flickering. The digital display indicates the exhaust %
value.
You can change the exhaust % value during the valve opening variable exhaust cycle. To do so,
refer to "Exhaust % During the Valve Opening Variable Exhaust Cycle" on page 20
A NOTE
-
If the steam is exhausted abruptly after liquid sterilization, the liquid may gush out. To prevent
this, set the exhaust % to a small value to gradually exhaust the steam. Or, set that to 0%
(spontaneous cooling).
When the pressure in the working chamber falls below 0.1 kgf/cm2, the exhaust valve is fully
opened.
When the temperature in the working chamber (or the temperature resistered by the floating
sensor, if used) falls to 97°C (or 7g°C)*, the EWWT. display stops flickering and lights up. The
display of opening of the exhaust valve (exhaust %) disappears from the digital display, and
operation proceeds to the next cycle.
* Specifications for particular area.
Forced Exhaust Cycle --- Mode 3
