Our experience has shown us that mapping can lead to a difficult conclusion: that the acceptance criteria are not met! “Controlled mapping” is an exclusive feature developed by AXITHERM to overcome the obstacle of this disappointing observation. We have therefore studied different thermal phenomena and developed this “controlled mapping” service reserved for the use of autoclaves only. Based on “product mapping”, combined with measurements of pressure, distortion and flow, we construct a new scale (i.e. a programming change) making it possible to meet the acceptance criteria not met using the standard scale. This method leads to rapid approval of autoclave operation without extending the cycle or modifying the minimum F0 (sterilizing value) or pasteurization value, or investing in equipment.
