Why Should The Steam Sterilizer Exclude Air Before Use?

Because the air enclosed in the chamber is a very poor sterilization medium. Air-wrapped instruments are difficult to achieve sterilization effect within 3 minutes by steam at 134 ° C. To achieve the same aseptic effect, hot air needs to be achieved at 160 ° C for 2 hours. Therefore, air must be removed from the chamber before steam sterilization.
