Title
(EN) CONTAINER WITH INTERNAL LIQUID DISTRIBUTION PORT FOR HOLDING EQUIPMENT WITH INTERNAL PASSAGES DURING STERILIZATION
(FR) RECIPIENT A ORIFICE DE DISTRIBUTION DE LIQUIDE INTERNE CONÇU POUR MAINTENIR UN EQUIPEMENT DOTE DE PASSAGES INTERNES PENDANT LA STERILISATION
Abstract
(EN)
A microbial decontamination system includes a lower housing portion (10) which receives a removable tray (12). The tray (12) defines a cassette receiving basin, a pair of anti-microbial fluid outlets (28, 64) and a drain (50). A pump (54) and associated plumbing circulates the anti-microbial fluid from the drain through the pair of outlets. A cassette (B) has a lower portion (Figures 8-10) which is configured to match the tray's basin and an upper portion (Figures 5-7) which is received on the lower cassette portion in an airborne microbe blocking relationship. The cassette bottom portion has an inlet (32) which receives the anti-microbial fluid and a baffle plate (44) adjacent the inlet having a plurality of apertures (96) for distributing the anti-microbial fluid within the cassette. The cassette defines a second inlet (66) which is interconnected with the tray second outlet also for receiving the anti-microbial fluid. The second inlet receives a removable distribution port assembly (68). The distribution port assembly has a plurality of nipples (116) for interconnection with hoses (118) that are connected with internal passages of items to be microbially decontaminated. A variety of distribution ports are provided, with different numbers of nipples, to provide an appropriate number of connections for the items to be microbially decontaminated.
(FR)
Un système de décontamination bactéricide comporte une partie d'enceinte inférieure (10) dans laquelle un bac amovible (12) est destiné à être placé. Le bac (12) définit un bassin pour cassette, une paire d'orifices de sortie de liquide bactéricide (28, 64) et une évacuation (50). Une pompe (54) et la tuyauterie associée permettent la circulation du liquide bactéricide dequis l'évacuation par la paire d'orifices de sortie. Une cassette (B) présente une partie inférieure (Figures 8-10) adaptée au bassin du bac et une partie supérieure (Figures 5-7) qui s'adapte sur la partie de la cassette inférieure conjointement avec laquelle il bloque les microbes en suspension dans l'air. La partie inférieure de la cassette présente un orifice d'admission (32) qui reçoit le liquide bactéricide, et un déflecteur (44) adjacent à l'ouverture et doté d'une pluralité d'ouvertures (96) permettant de répartir le liquide bactéricide à l'intérieur de la cassette. La cassette définit un second orifice d'admission (66) qui est relié au second orifice de sortie du bac et est également destiné à recevoir le liquide bactéricide. Le second orifice d'admission reçoit un ensemble à orifices de distribution amovible (68) qui présente une pluralité de raccords (116) permettant le raccord avec des tuyaux (118) qui sont reliés aux passages internes des articles à stériliser. Une pluralité d'orifices de distribution dotés d'une pluralité de raccords est prévue de sorte qu'un nombre approprié de raccords soit présent pour les articles à stériliser.
