Proper Care of the STATIM CassetteSTATIM dental autoclave sterilizer cassette

To ensure that your cassette continues to function properly:

  • Clean the cassette once a week with mild, chlorine-free dishwashing soap
  • Spray the cassette with Stat-dri (or equivalent) after each cycle to promote faster cassette drying
  • Lubricate the rubber cassette seal once or twice a week with a mild liquid soap—not antibacterial soap
  • Do not overfill the cassette; closing the lid of an overfilled cassette can damage it

Proper Care of the STATIM Unit

To help your STATIM continue to function correctly:

  • Never insert the cassette into the STATIM upside down
  • Check the bottom of the cassette for small debris after each cycle
  • Confirm that the bubble in the level indicator is at the 3:00 or 4:00 position before operating
  • Check under the STATIM regularly for water; water under the STATIM indicates a steam leak.
  • Empty the waste bottle once per week
  • Always use distilled water
