Steam Generator Service & Repair
Many autoclaves are supplied with steam from local electric steam generators such as the Fulton EFS. There is an increasing trend for remote steam raising plant to be replaced with local steam generation and therefore the population of such plant is set to increase. Ascot Autoclaves have always offered servicing and repair of local electric steam generators, and carry a stock of spare parts for common models.
We carry able to carry out hydrostatic testing, usually in conjunction with the statutory inspection.
Ascot autoclaves are also able to repair and overhaul steam generators. Below is pictured a replacement control panel for a British Sterilizer FS36 model. This panel was designed and built by Ascot Autoclaves to replace an existing poor quality third party designed panel which did not have in built safety features.
The replacement panel features microprocessor control and solid state switching for the boiler heaters. Safety protection circuits are built in to prevent boiler overpressure even in the event that a solid state switch fails on.
In addition to service and repair of electric steam generators, Ascot Autoclaves are able to undertake the service and repair of steam to steam generators.
