Bolsoplast Pouches

« Back to Previous Page

In New Zealand several hospital sites are using Bolsoplast sterilisation pouches. However those who have Getinge autoclaves are reporting issues with them, the seams are rupturing during the sterilization process. Hospitals with other brands of Autoclave are not experiencing this.
Has anyone outside of New Zealand come across this issue.
thank you

Dear Thomas Shelagh.
This type of problems can be in two causes.
First: Large Sterilizers from Getinge have very powerful (efficient) vacuum pump, and in the time of changing pressure (air evacuation, drying, steam pulses of drying) this pressure changing can be more efficient than packaging materials can let pass. In this case you have damaging of manufacturer joint of packaging materials. Unfortunately you cannot do something with speed of pressure changing.

Second: Some manufacturers of packaging materials are produce they product the lower boundary of the tolerance. Their marketing specialists are speak to you that their packaging materials cost lower 20% than concurrent. But we are not children’s and cannot believe in miracle. If some manufacturers remove one-three layer of paper or one-three layer of film from packaging materials and install very cheap CI (material economy) – their packaging materials can be cost lower 20%, but all of this material economy – it’s economy on final quality of product. On Russian market we have this type of manufacturers.

Hope it’s help.

Maybe our colleagues from other countries have this type of problems?
