STATIM'S SPEED

Reduces Instrument Investment

STATIM sterilizes handpieces and instruments for immediate use in as little as 8 minutes, reducing the number required as instruments can be processed ‘just in time’ or between patients.

 

Increases Efficiency

Fast point-of-use sterilization makes turnaround a priority, increasing efficiency and virtually eliminates instrument bottlenecks.

 

Gentle on Instruments

Our state-of-the-art steam technology is gentle on both solid and hollow instruments.

 

THE STATIM DIFFERENCE.

Immediate Steam Generation

Unlike conventional autoclaves that need to heat an entire reservoir of water, STATIM uses only a small, specific amount of water required for each cycle. Water is introduced into a heating device referred to as a ‘steam generator’, rapidly heated and converted to steam in mere seconds.

 

Air Removal

Using PPPD technology and our patented steam injection process – air is automatically forced out of the sterilization chamber.

 

Cassette System

The thin stainless steel walls of STATIM’s fully-removable cassette, (or sterilization chamber) allow for rapid heating and cooling of the chamber. As a result, STATIM meets the conditions for sterilization and drying in a fraction of the time required by a conventional autoclave.

 

Drying Technology

The STATIM 2000 and 5000 have each been designed to provide you with a complete solution: rapid sterilization balanced by rapid drying. Introducing STATIM Dri-Tec drying technology.

TOUCH. CONNECT. PROTECT. COLLECT.

 

Touch

A large 3.5” high-resolution touchscreen offers a vivid display of messages, current cycle information and customizable colours all with extraordinary clarity. Fully adjustable contrast levels let you optimize the screen to the lighting in your steri-centre.

 

Connect

Through your networked portal, you can vie not only your STATIMs current operations in real time, you can also access cycle history, printing and validation information, and also sterilization records. Capable of sending emails with cycle information errors directly to your dealer, your STATIM G4 will let qualified technicians know when service is imminent.

 

Protect

Patient safety relies on attention to detail. The STATIM G4 supports verifiable processes that are PIN protected with user-defined IDs so that staff members can be required to authorize a cycle. This encourages extra attention to process and creates a safer environment for both staff and patients.

 

Collect

An undocumented sterilization cycle might as well not have been performed. With each cycle, information must be stored to protect your office and your patient. The integrated DataLogger stores all cycle information for the lifetime of the unit, which is accessible through multiple channels such as: a USB port for manual retrieval; an Ethernet connection for web based archiving or desktop printing; or a RS232 port for an external printer option.

Machine will not start and touchscreen displays H2O X icon

Action

Press on the icon    to confirm whether it is a water level problem or a water quality problem.

If it is a water quality problem, you have likely used water which is not steam-process distilled or is improperly distilled.

If the level of the water in the reservoir is low, refill the reservoir. 

Filling the Water Reservoir

When filling the reservoir, ensure you only use steam processed distilled water containing less than 5ppm total dissolved solids (having conductivity of less then 10µS/cm). The impurities and additives in other water sources will cause an error reading on the LCD. To fill the reservoir, follow the steps below:

  1. Remove the reservoir cap (1). 
  2. Pour steam-process distilled water into the reservoir until almost full (a maximum of 4 litres). Use a funnel to avoid spillage.
  3. Replace and secure the cap.

Empty the reservoir and refill with steam-process distilled water containing less than 5 ppm total dissolved solids (having conductivity of less than 10 μS / cm).

If you have the water conductivity meter, check the quality of the water before refilling the reservoir.

To empty the reservoir follow these steps:

  1. Place a water container below the unit.
  2. Using the drain tube (see Section 3.5 Priming the Pump, Figure 6 of the Statim 2000 User Manual) empty the contents of the reservoir into the water container.
  3. Remove any remaining water from the reservoir with a non-linting, absorbent towel.
  4. Screw-in the three leveler feet found underneath the unit.
  5. Repack the unit in the original packing materials and include all accessories originally included with the unit.
  6. Specify heated and insured shipping.

Touchscreen displays the globe icon with X beside it

 Action

An X over the connectivity icon    means the unit is not connected to a network. If it is supposed to be connected to a network and the X is visible, it is because the unit is unable to acquire an IP address.

To resolve the issue, try the following:

  • Check that the router is functioning properly.
  • Check the LAN cable (try a new cable if possible).
  • Make sure your router assigns IP addresses automatically.

Renew the IP address by following these steps:

  1. Scroll through the setup menu to NETWORK SETUP and select.
  2. Select RENEW IP.

How often should you perform the helix test?

Once a day.

How often should you perform the ACT?

Once a day.

How often should you perform the vacuum test?

Once per week on a cold, empty chamber.

Do you need to drain the water from the autoclave at the end of each day?

Yes, no residual water must be left in the unit overnight. 

What instruments can you put through on the Quick S programme?

Hollow, solid and air retentive instruments can be put through on this cycle.

Can the autoclave be linked to a drain?

Yes, this requires the purchase of a double chamber syphon and can be fitted by a Henry Schein Dental engineer. 

How often should you download the data logger?

This is down to the practice requirements, but typically many practices will download once per week. 

My autoclave has a data logger attached; do I still need to carry out the TST test?

Consult the manufacturer of your autoclave as they will inform you if this is required. HTM 01-05 states that this should still be completed. If you obtain no advice from the manufacturer then follow the HTM 01-05 guidance.

Cleaning the Cassette

Keeping the STATIM cassette clean is good clinical practice and assists in the proper functioning of the unit. SciCan recommends that the interior surface be cleaned at least once a week. Cleaning the inside of your cassette is very important if you regularly sterilise lubricated instruments.

  1. Use dishwashing soap or a mild detergent that does not contain chlorine.
  2. Scrub the inside of the cassette with a cleaning pad designed for use with Teflon™ coated surfaces.
  3. After scouring, rinse thoroughly with water to remove all traces of the detergent.

Coating the entire inside surface with STAT-DRI Plus drying agent induces water to form an even coat on the inside surface, without beading. The water in contact with the hot cassette surfaces also evaporates much more efficiently. Spotting is minimised and instruments dry much better. STAT-DRI Plus should be applied every 10 cycles and after every cassette cleaning.


Cleaning the Water Reservoir Filter

This water reservoir filter should be cleaned at least once a week or when required.

The filter can easily be removed and cleaned by placing the filter upside down under running water to wash away the particles until clean and then placed back into the reservoir opening.


Cleaning the Reservoir

Check the reservoir for dirt or particles. The reservoir may be cleaned by draining followed by cleaning and rinsing with steam process distilled water ONLY. Use of chemicals or cleaning agents is not recommended and could damage the unit.


Cleaning the Exterior Surfaces

Use a soft cloth moistened with soap and water to clean all exterior surfaces.

Do not use harsh cleaning chemicals or disinfectants.


Changing the STATIM 2000 G4 Air Filter

The filter should be replaced every six months or after 500 cycles in order to maintain an adequate supply of clean air

Image

 during the air drying cycle.

 

To change the filter, follow these steps:

  1. Turn the power switch at the back of the unit OFF.
  2. Remove and discard the old foam air filter (3).
  3. Install the new filter (3).
  4. Secure the filter plate (2) to the back of the compressor using the screw (1) retained during the disassembly procedure.

Changing the Bacteria Retentive Air Filters

The filters should be replaced every six months or after 500 cycles to maintain an adequate supply of clean air during the air drying cycle.

To change the bacteria retentive air filter on the STATIM 2000 G4 follow these steps:

  1. Power the STATIM OFF.Image
  2. Disconnect tube A (1) from the bacteria retentive filter (2) and remove the filter from the filter bracket (3). As you remove the filter from the bracket, note the orientation of the arrow mark on the filter.
  3. When the filter is free of the bracket, carefully disconnect tube B (4) from the filter.
  4. Before installing the replacement bacteria retentive filter (2) check that the arrow mark on the filter matches the direction of the arrow on the bracket. Push the left hand filter fitting into tube B (4).
  5. Gently press the replacement filter into the filter bracket (3). The arrow mark of the filter should be facing out and pointing to the left.
  6. Re-connect tube A (1) to the right hand filter fitting.

Replacing the Cassette Seal

To ensure optimum performance of your STATIM cassette autoclave, change the cassette seal every 500 cycles or every six months, whichever comes first.

Image
 

To change the cassette seal, follow these steps:

Place the cassette lid and the new seal on a clean work surface. Examine the position of the old seal in the cassette lid and arrange the new seal in the same orientation, next to the lid.

 

Remove the old seal and discard. Clean any residue out of the seal channel and flush out the channel with distilled water.

Image

Lubricate the new seal with the liquid seal lubricant provided.

Image

Insert the rounded edge of the seal under the round lip of the lid. Align the holes in the new seal with the holes in the lid.

At every corner and at the holes in the lid, two square nibs should be visible. The nibs should fit flush with the lid’s outer surface.

Image

Ensure the seal is completely inserted. Feel around the periphery to ensure the seal is securely in place.

 During a cycle, steam may appear between the lid and the tray. If this persists, remove the cassette and check that the seal is correctly installed.

The metal parts will be hot and the cassette may contain hot steam.


Maintaining Fluid Levels

  1. The water reservoir level is continually monitored by your STATIM. If the reservoir is low, a red X will appear on the water icon  Image of the cycle select screen. Press the icon to go to the next screen to confirm that it is a water level issue and not a water quality issue.
  2. If the reservoir is low, a Image will appear next to WATER LEVEL.
  3. To fill the reservoir, remove the cap from the top of the unit and fill the reservoir.

It is recommended to use a funnel to minimise spills. Each time you refill the reservoir, empty the waste bottle and refill with water to the MIN line. Empty the waste bottle often to avoid unpleasant odours and discolouration of the contents. A low-level chlorine-free disinfectant, prepared according to the manufacturer’s instructions, may be added to the waste bottle to remedy this situation.


Reading Water Quality

  1. The water quality is continually monitored by your STATIM. Use only steam-process distilled water containing less than 5 ppm total dissolved solids (having conductivity of less than 10 μS / cm) in the STATIM. If the water quality is beyond these tolerances, a red X will appear on the water icon Image of the cycle select screen. Press the icon to go to the next screen to confirm that it is a water quality issue and not a water level issue.
  2. If the water quality not suitable, Image will appear next to micro S. and parts per million values.
  3. Using the drain tube (see section 3.5 Priming the Pump, Figure 6 of the Statim 2000 User Manual) empty the contents of the reservoir into the water container and replace with steam-process distilled water containing less than 5 ppm total dissolved solids (having conductivity of less than 10 μS / cm).
