Autoclaving : Destruction of Bio-Medical Waste

The primary purpose of autoclave is to sterilise/ dis-infect the waste with steam. Micro organisms which contribute to infection do not survive beyond 80o C. However, as a precaution MoEF has stipulated a temperature of 121o C with 15 psi pressure to ensure distribution of temperature. At this temperature and pressure, micro organisms are completely destroyed and thus render the wastes infection free.

Sangam Mediserve Pvt. Ltd. has established an autoclave with the above principles, thus rendering the wastes free from infection.

The dis-infected waste shall then be segregated into HDPE, PP, rubber, latex, glass and metal.
The segregated materials shall then be shredded completing the process of dis-infection and ensuring non-recycling of the waste materials for medical/ food grade purposes.
