CSA C22.2 NO 61010-2-043
Safety Requirements for Electrical Equipment for Measurement, Control, and Laboratory Use - Part 2-043: Particular Requirements for Dry Heat Sterilizers Using Either Hot Air or Hot Inert Gas for the Treatment of Medical Materials, and for Laboratory Processes
|Publication Date:||1 July 1998|
This standard applies to STERILIZERS, including those having an automatic loading and unloading system, with one or more CHAMBERS operating at approximately atmospheric pressure and using hot air or hot inert gas intended for the treatment of medical materials, and for laboratory processes.
1 Regulations and codes, national or other, may apply for the safety of automatic loading and unloading systems.
2 It is generally recommended that automatic control is provided for equipment using high temperatures because a manual control system could present serious hazards to the OPERATOR.
Equipment excluded from scope
Add two new dashes and the note as follows:
- laboratory equipment for the heating of materials, other than for sterilization (see IEC 61010-2-010);
- environmental cabinets.
NOTE - This standard does not specify requirements for protection against high-risk microbiological hazards associated with the LOAD, or requirements for the design of the CHAMBER itself.
