Item No.: 012
The Process Challenge packs are used to monitor steam sterilization loads and can be used to release non implant loads.  The PCDs are designed for use in standard steam sterilizing processes, including 250° F (121°C) gravity steam, 270°F (132°) prevacuum

Each pack consists of a series of steam penetration and air removal barriers. A Class 5 integrator, as defined by EN ISO 11140-1, is located in the center of the barriers. The test pack is placed within the chamber of each load to be steam sterilized.
During processing, the sterilizer must remove or displace the air from the barrier material and replace it with steam throughout the pack. If a failure should occur, the indicator ink can assist in detecting steam quality issues based on the characteristics of the failure patterns of the indicator ink.
The Process Challenge Packs are manufactured in the absence of lead and heavy metals.
