Steam filters for hospitals eliminate instrument staining, spotting, and rusting caused by wet or dirty steam. Wrapped articles emerge from the sterilizer cycle drier and cleaner. Filtering hospital steam also results in reduced contamination of sterilizer interiors which in turn cuts down on cleaning time. Maintenance of sterilizer steam control valves, door seals, and other rubber materials is also significantly minimized.
