HVHA Technology is an Alternative to Immediate-Use Steam Sterilization

CPAC Equipment is introducing the COX Rapid Heat™ Model 6000 as a cost-effective alternative to immediate-use steam sterilization. Leading the industry in HVHA (High-Velocity Hot Air) sterilization with FDA-cleared 6- and 12-minute cycles, the COX RapidHeat table-top sterilizer incorporates patent-pending instrument organizers and pouches to secure instruments during the fast turn-around sterilization process.

The COX RapidHeat HVHA sterilization system does not require the use of any water, steam or toxic chemicals. Drying cycles are eliminated in HVHA systems and with the absence of water, steam and chemicals there is no corrosion, pitting or dulling of instruments.

The COX RapidHeat Sterilizer has been recently proven by an independent third party to average 84% less energy per sterilization cycle than competitive steam sterilizers, and can sterilize up to 150 instruments per hour in pouched cassettes. The fast turnaround of the COX RapidHeat Sterilizer eliminates the temptation of medical staff to bypass or shorten cycles that can jeopardize instrument sterility.

In addition to rapid dry heat sterilizers, the company offers a full complement of instrument sterilization pouches, instrument organizers, cassettes, holding racks, spore test kits, incubators and indicator strips.
