1. Introduction
About the STATFlow Direct-to-Drain System
The STATFlow Direct-to-Drain system replaces the need for a STATIM condenser/waste bottle by cooling
the exhaust water from STATIM 2000 and STATIM 5000 autoclaves and automatically sending it directly
down the drain.
About this Installation Guide and User Manual
This manual was created as a reference for the installation of the STATFlow Direct-to-Drain System and
to provide information to users concerning the care and operation of the system.
If you have a question about the unit you are installing, please contact your local SciCan representative.
Any installation of the STATFlow must observe the plumbing code criteria as specified by the
municipality or region governing the installation site.
Recommendation: kit to be installed by a service professional.
2. Important information
Warnings and Precautions
The details of installing and operating your STATFlow system are all contained within this manual.
Installation and maintenance instructions should be followed for the system to perform as designed.
The STATFlow system is designed specifically to function with STATIM 2000/5000 and
STATIM G4 2000/5000 (available in Canada only). It is not designed for use with other models
or products. Using it with other models or products may result in damage to equipment or
plumbing infrastructure.
Do not permit any person other than certified personnel to supply parts for, service, install or
maintain your STATFlow system. SciCan will not be liable for incidental, special or consequential
damages caused by any maintenance or services performed on the STATFlow system by a third
party, or for the use of equipment or parts manufactured by a third party, including lost profits,
any commercial loss, economic loss, or loss arising from personal injury.
Ensure correct water tank height
As a non-pressurized system, the STATFlow must be installed so that the top of water tank is below
the lowest point on the air gap assembly and above the connection to drain. Typically this will
require elevating the water tank. If a STATFlow system is installed without respecting these relative
heights, it may not function properly.
Perform tests
When the installation is complete, turn on the water supply and check for leaks. If there are no
leaks, run three consecutive cycles with the STATIM. Check for leaks and watch the tubing to
ensure water is draining correctly.

1. Tap the cold water
supply line and connect
a 3” to 4” section of ¼”
clear tubing (RED) to the
water supply valve (H).
2. Attach water supply valve
(H) by pushing the clear ¼”
tubing (RED) into the pressure
fitting. Be certain the valve is
in the closed position with the
blue lever at 90-degrees to
the valve.

3. Measure the drain adapter tee
assembly for placement on the
drain assembly. Cut and remove
a section of the drain assembly
above the P-trap. Install the
drain adapter tee (G) as low as
possible, while maintaining a
minimum 1” offset from the drain.
6. Cabinetry
Install the air gap assembly.
OR
1-1/4”
1. The air gap assembly (F) is designed to fit
into the sprayer hole of standard sinks. If this
option is not available, drill a 1-1/4” diameter
hole in the lip of the sink. If the sink is an under
mount style, drill the hole as close to the edge
as possible. It is important that water from
the air gap assembly drain into the sink.
2. On the air gap assembly (F), pull
upwards on the chrome cover to
remove the top. Then remove the top
threaded nut and washer, leaving
the lower threaded nut in place.
sInsert the air gap assembly
(F) into hole from under
the counter.
sPlace the washer followed
by the top threaded nut at top
of threads and turn only 2 to
3 times (just enough to catch
a few threads). Then tighten
the air gap assembly from
underneath the counter using
the bottom threaded nut.

3. Replace the chrome
cover making sure the
opening does not reveal
the overflow outlet.

tubing (YEL) supplied with the STATFlow. Be certain the ¼” Teflon tubing runs down from
the STATIM to the STATFlow system. The entry hole into the cabinet housing the STATFlow
tank should be higher than the top of the tank (see section ‘Starting and using the STATFlow
system’ for tank placement). When possible, tubing should not have any level sections where
water draining from the STATIM can collect. Avoid areas where the ¼” Teflon tubing can be
pinched by drawers.

2. Connect the water supply to the water tank. Using ¼” clear tubing (RED), connect one end to the
water coolant valve (H) by pushing tubing into the push-to-connect fitting and the other end to the top
of the fitting on the brass valve (B) of the water tank (warm the tubing with hot water and make sure
the tubing is pushed down so that it is flush with the top of the steel hex nut).

exhaust to the white Kynar inlet fitting (P) on the top of the manifold. Be sure that this tube does not
kink when installed or when moving the STATIM.
5. Connect the manifold to the drain. Remove the tubing loop on the drain adapter tee (G) and connect
a section of ¼” LLDPE tubing (BLU) from the outlet fitting (Q) on the manifold to the upper input (L) on
the drain adapter tee. Cut this ¼” LLDPE tubing (BLU) and insert the in-line thermal sensor (J) oriented
with the arrow pointing towards the drain and the black gasket closest to the drain.
6. Connect the water tank overflow port to the drain. Use ¼” LLDPE tubing (BLU) and connect the
overflow port (D) on the water tank (A) to the lower input (K) on the drain adapter tee.

8. Getting started
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Ensure correct water tank height
As a non-pressurized system, the STATFlow must be installed so that the top of water tank
is below the lowest point on the air gap assembly and above the connection to the drain.
Typically this will require elevating the water tank. A STATFlow system installed without
respecting these relative heights may not function properly.
Starting and using the STATFlow system
1. Turn on the water supply and check for leaks.
2. Slowly open the water supply valve (H) to the STATFlow system and check for leaks.
3. Prime the system by inserting a small screwdriver in the hole at the base
of the water tank’s brass valve (B) and pushing up on the poppet valve.
The system is primed when water can be seen leaving the overflow valve
through the tubing to the drain adapter tee.
4. Set the water tank in an elevated position above the drain connections
on the P-trap to ensure proper drainage. The correct height will vary
with each installation. What is most important is to ensure the top of the
water tank is LOWER than the air gap assembly legs and ABOVE the drain
points in the drain adapter tee.
B
5. When the installation is complete, turn on the water supply and check
for leaks. If there are no leaks, run 3 consecutive cycles with the STATIM.
Check for leaks and watch tubing to ensure that the water is draining correctly.
6. Use the STATFlow system. Since the STATFlow system is designed as a low-maintenance,
automatic alternative to using condenser/waste bottles, once it is properly primed it will function
without operator input. Beyond periodic visual inspections of the tubing, there is nothing an
operator must do to ensure continued and safe operation.
Page 10
9. Maintenance
The STATFlow Direct-to-Drain system is designed to require minimum maintenance. However, it is
recommended that operators periodically verify that the tubing and connections are free of mineral
deposits and not compromised in any way. The system includes several failsafe devices designed to
stop the flow of exhaust water from the STATIM in the event of a problem.
OPERATOR
Every 6 months
Check clear tubing for mineral deposits. Visually inspect all connections
to ensure there are no leaks.
TECHNICIAN
Once a year
Visually inspect system checking for leaks.
