How does an autoclave work?
At our treatment facility, the first of its kind in the state of Arkansas, the regulated medical waste is ran through an autoclave where it is sterilized by a combination of pressure, heat & steam. A process that takes 60 minutes, our autoclave runs at 275 degrees with a steady pressure of 35 psi. This ensures the waste has been properly treated and is safe to be discarded into the local landfill. The pathology and pharmaceutical waste that we receive is transported to a trusted partner for incineration.
