Propper’s EN 867-4-complying OAD-II Bowie and
Dick type test pack brings a new feature for
daily monitoring of pre-vacuum sterilizers.
Excessive moisture in the steam during a cycle
develops a specific color change pattern of
streaks or spots with grey color on a uniform
black background. It is not a concern if the
loads and packs are dry after their sterilization
cycles. If the number of such streaks/spots
increases day by day, it indicates a worsening
wet steam situation thereby permitting timely
corrective action on steam quality.
