Will syringes melt if I wrap in tinfoil and p.cook @ 15 psi?
    #1781500 - 08/05/03 02:00 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

My friends friend's millet jars are a little on the dry side.

He is pressure cooking some syringes full of water right now. he has a few questions for you guys and gals regarding this issue.

How long should he pressure cook? (cooker just reached 15psi and is going steadily)

Will the syringes melt?

I think that's all... he's gonna let them cool down for a few hours and then simply squirt a little water into each jar to give the fuckers some moisture.

thx.

Why don't you just boil the syringes and PC a jar of half filled with distilled water? That would be what I would do. As far as your question I don't think they would melt or anything but try a few to see. And don't put the water in the syringes to PC. It will just boil out of it.

Uh why not just boil some water. then draw some of the water into the syringe and spray it in the sink. Then draw up some more water in the syringe keep the needle submerged. as soon as you take it outta the water put the cap back on, then wait for it to cool. Flame sterilize before you use it. would this not work? .

Meat Log your tottaly right but I'm paranoid about those organisms that withstand boiling temperatures.

i'd rather be safe then sorry... a 30 minute pressure cook is no biggie.

but i have no syringes left and i know this will save my jars.

Nope. Syringes are meant to take autoclaving. Cook away. Just depressurize slowly and naturally if you want to keep all that liquid in the syringes...;)

This is not necesserily true... re-usable syringes are meant to withstand autoclaving, but disposable ones aren't (I guess that figures huh). If they aren't meant for re-use, they might melt.

True.  But most of the syringes in the sizes we use are meant to take it.  :smile:

so can you just fill the syringe with water, wrap them in foil, and boil them for like a hour and a half? how do you guys do it?

Yeah, that sounds fine... I don't even know if the tinfoil is neccesary, but it won't do any harm

BD's can handle a short PC in my experience. Just be sure not to leave em directly on the bottom - put them on top of some Karo jars or something for a shorter timing.
