EcoClave™ – Wood Fired Autoclave
Complete and safe sterilisation
One of the vital, but often overlooked areas, in developing world healthcare is that of sterilisation. Sterilisation of surgical instruments and other items is commonly recognised in the developing world as a major challenge. This directly affects patient care, due to increased risk of cross infection as a result of incomplete sterilisation cycles.
From our experience we came up with a solution… the EcoClave™ which can be used in areas where there is no or unreliable electricity. This multi-fuel autoclave uses wood or charcoal and is the revolutionary answer to this problem. Complete sterilisation cycles are guaranteed in environments where there is no electricity or its supply is erratic. Its unique design means it uses the fuel and heat very efficiently, so that the sterilising temperature in the autoclave is rapidly reached (approximately 20 minutes first cycle, 8 minutes, second) and is easily maintained throughout its duration. Its large capacity means full general surgical sets can be sterilised.
