Autoclave mapping = autoclave temperature distribution

Static or rotary autoclave thermal mapping

Elimination of drift generators on autoclavee

Location of cold / hot spots

Dispersions made acceptable from hot / cold spots

The expectations of a temperature distribution study:

Autoclave mapping must result in a report that responds positively to the specifications required by your client (certifier, large distribution or food industry players) or a major maintenance operation . Also the total dispersion must not exceed the degree during the pasteurization or sterilization stage and this is not always the case.
So what to do?
– check and adjust the metrology of the measuring instruments of your food autoclave
– map the enclosure temperatures and make them homogeneous if necessary by various adjustments (writing of the scale, mode of regulation, power of energy networks, …)
– identify the cold point and the hot point
– check the repeatability of the equipment
– check the performance correspondence to the specifications
– quickly publish a clear and detailed report which validates the industrial operation of the autoclave

Autoclave mapping process

Assessment on industrial site:
– Study of the workshop and its energy networks
– Identification of the critical load
– Location of cold / hot zones and possible stalls to reduce their dispersions
Test phase:
– Optimized distribution of five sensors per basket
– Reading of temperatures, pressures at each stage
Validation process:
– Measurement of two cycles under critical load
– Reading and interpretation of the values obtained
– Protocol customization possible
