autoclav modding
    #3422179 - 11/29/04 05:31 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

hey!

recently a friend of mine dug up a seriously old autoklave his grandparents had for some reason?!

the thing is HUGE and working, but it has got some inner tube restricting the use
of the full inside of the autoclav.

since he would like to use the full possibilities (who wouldnt),
he thought about tuning the autoclav.

heres a picutre scematic of how the autoclav works:


as u can see, the water u fill in has to pass all the way round a 'tube' as steam till it
can escape the autoclave through the hole in the ground out of the pressure vent.

thing is, this tube on the inside of it is taking away a LOT of space
he'd like to use.

the idea was to cut away the tube, just leaving the lower part holding the
pressure vent.

in theory, this wouldnt cause the autoclav to have any problems,
since the steam will continue to 'move' around the autoclav.

the only thing making sence would be,
that in the atm setup, the steam has to rise to the top of the autoklav
and pass all the stuff inside before it can escape through the hole in
the ground.
the cutting away of the tube would render this impossible and could therefor,
in my logic, turn the whole sterilistion process impossible.

also, the boiling water could enter the pressure vent, again, rendering the process impossible.

if someone got some suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated.
peace ohm

*edit*
actually u could consider this unit to be a stereoclave,
just messing around with the names and such :wink:

*edit2*
what if one like removed the inner tube and welds a little tube to the
steam outlet, running it up on the side of the autoklave.

so that the steam still hase to rise all through the matter bevore it can escape through the tube?`

like this:

knowing nothing at all about autoclaves/ stereoclaves. but the way they had it was for a reason and shouldnt probably be messed with .. unless u like being hurt. if thats true then go for it

yea sure,
the way it is constructed is that is foces the steam to pass all aroundthe sterilisation matter, guaranteeing it to be 'submerged' in steam.

if u saw the inside of the autoklave, ud understand.
anyone else?

allright, lets think about something else.

if i were to 'transplant' the pressure outlet to the top,
so the steam would have to travel all the way up till if can escape the
autoklave (not the top u put on, but the top of the base)

can u weld that hole in the base shut and it wont burst even though u may
have 2 bars atmospheric pressure in there?

will welded seals withstand that?

allright just for people interested in crazy experiments as i am doin :wink:
welding a hole in a pressure container is kind of 'irritating' the whole
container as is.

it would not be possible to create a seal that withstands the pressure,
unless the whole container is braught to a specific temperature and then,
is welded.

so, since this blows my financial capabilities way off,
no welding for me :/
