SVMS Steam Quality Test Kit

Category: Tag:


Steam Quality Testing has been an EU requirement for many years (ISO EN 285) and has been adopted by many other countries and the world’s pharmaceutical environment. The SVMS Steam Quality Test Kit range was developed to enable their own engineers to provide reliable and efficient testing without the need for bulky or difficult to use equipment. The comprehensive kit provides all the components required to perform Steam Quality Tests and Clean Steam Sampling. No additional components or tools are required. The Steam Quality Test apparatus incorporates measurement of Non-Condensable gases, Dryness Value and Superheat. The cleanliness of steam (Clean/Pure Steam) was recommended to be adopted in the UK NHS by Health Technical Memorandum 2031 and in the EU by ISO EN 285. These documents provide limits for chemical impurities.In order to collect steam condensate for analysis of Bacterial Endotoxins all the components that come into contact with the sampled steam need to be depyrogenated in an oven. The SVMS Clean Steam condenser was designed specifically for this purpose.
