Riken Bowie-Dick Test Pack is designed as an environmentally safe lead free method for daily monitoring of pre-vacuum steam sterilizers to detect air leaks, inadequate steam penetration and vacuum pump failures. Riken Bowie-Dick Test Pack is designed to simulate a standard towel pack for detecting temperature drops and the presence of air. The test pack is placed in the sterilizer in the most difficult to sterilizing area and run through a sterilization cycle for 16.9 minutes at 121℃. A test pack consists of several blotter sheets, and a test sheet packaged in a silver set. The correctly assembled test pack simulates the resistance of a Bowie-Dick test pack.
If no appreciable air is present in the sterilizer chamber after vacuums are drawn, the steam will penetrate to the middle of the test pack and turn the indicator sheet a uniform green color. If a small amount of air is present, sufficient to cause a two-degree temperature drop in a Bowie-Dick towel pack, the air will migrate to the middle of the test pack turning the center of the sheet as indicated by a Bordeaux red color rather than a uniform green.
