A Liquid/Chemical Sterilizer is an automated, tabletop, microcomputer-controlled device which maintains the process parameters necessary to ensure standardized and effective liquid chemical sterilization. The device is an immersible, heat-sensitive machine used to clean scopes (e.g. endoscopes, sigmoidoscopes, etc). The use dilution fills the chamber and is typically heated to 115 - 131°F (46 - 55°C) for liquid chemical sterilization. The device operates on 115 VAC, 60 Hz, 15 amp power circuits. 
It uses a sterilant concentrate which is a powerful liquid chemical sterilant used to eliminate all microbial life. The whole process takes approximately a 23-minutes to complete one cycle.
Listed are recommended maintenance cycles that can be loaded within local computerized maintenance management systems. These cycles can also be used to estimate average monthly cycle inspections, PMs, and calibrations with average technician hours. Disclaimer: It is recommended to consult OEM cycles.
