  • An upgrade takes 90% less time to install than buying new
  • An upgrade doesn’t require any construction or rigging
  • An upgrade doesn’t incur any logistics cost
  • Upgrading extends the life of your sterilizer
  • The PSS11 upgrade integrates with Building Management Systems (BMS)
  • Flexibility of cycles/improved performance
  • Process changes – improve cycle performance

What are the 3 levels of equipment upgrades?

1) Controls upgrade only includes PLC and control screen.
