Bowie & Dick Type Autoclave Lean Pack < Back to overview
Interster has developed a new Bowie & Dick Type Autoclave Lean Pack which meets all requirements of the ISO 11140-4. The Bowie & Dick Type Autoclave Lean Pack is a Type 2 chemical indicator packed in special paper with a cardboard outer packaging which imitates the original Bowie & Dick test. The Bowie & Dick Type Autoclave Lean Pack tests if steam penetration in the autoclave is at sufficient level through colour change of the chemical indicator. The change of colour of the chemical indicator will turn from blue to light pink and indicates if all parameters (time, pressure and steam penetration) are sufficient to approve the process.
The Bowie & Dick Type Autoclave Lean Pack consists of a chemical indicator which is packed in between two layers of special paper. The chemical indicator and special paper are packed in a cardboard outer packaging which can be opened very easily after usage. The indicator contains a specially developed indicator ink which is affixed through a silkscreen printing process. The product does not contain heavy metals.
The new Bowie & Dick Type Autoclave Lean Pack has the size of 102 x 76 x 30 mm. Due to the fact the Bowie & Dick Type Autoclave Lean Pack has a smaller size, it is possible to pack more efficiently. This has resulted in more economic transport packaging. Bowie & Dick Type Autoclave Lean Pack has been tested under supervision of the BSI Assurance UK Ltd. The Lean pack was positively certified with a BSI Kitemark (KM 633144) and completely meets the ISO 11140-4 on all possible Bowie & Dick cycles (B1, B2 and B3).
As a result of the starting colour of the Bowie & Dick Type Autoclave Lean Pack being blue and the final colour needed being pink/purple, a clear contrast is visible between a successful and unsuccessful process. This eliminates any doubt between a before and after result of the process.
