    The worldwide unique 4in1 Solution Careclave

    Careclave. The revolutionary 4in1 Solution for instrument reprocessing.

    The entire process of instrument reprocessing in only one device. A vision that we followed more than 9 years ago and turned from an idea into our worldwide unique innovation: Careclave. As an worldwide unique 4in1 Solution Careclave combines all reprocessing steps: cleaning & disinfection, lubrication, sterilization and documentation and approval. Following the motto „Time to care“ Careclave protects not only patients and staffthrough ideal reprocessing results but also the valuable instruments. And additionally prevents wear and corrision of the instruments through optimal lubrication. This makes Careclave a unique device concept that enables practices and clinics to save time, money and space in instrument reprocessing and to make daily workflows more efficient. After extensive internal and external quality checks of Careclave, a variety of test practices started integrating and using Careclave in 2019. On the 13th of January 2021 we introduced Careclave to the german market as part of our MELAG Online-Keynote and since then, Careclave has been inspiring practices by bringing together what belongs together.

    Diagonal view Premium autoclave

    The Premium-Class. Record operating times accelerate instrument decontamination.

    How can existing procedures be made better and safer? The newly presented Premium-Class autoclaves have the twin chamber technology that has been patented since 2003 and combines particularly quick operating times with particularly safe sterilization. To date, the price, complexity and installation space required meant this technology was only common in the hospital sector. The MELAG engineers were able to refine this technology and make it available in the small devices. The Premium-Class autoclaves were the first practice sterilizers in the world to have LAN interfaces enabling documentation via the practice network.

    Vacuklav 31. Greater safety through fractionated pre-vacuum in practice autoclaves.

    How can even complex loads such as tools with long hollow spaces or textiles be sterilized in private medical and dental practices? With the highly innovative practice autoclave Vacuklav 31, MELAG brought the technology of the large hospital sterilizers into the private and dental sectors for the first time, thereby enabling an equivalent level of sterilization to be achieved in private practice as in hospitals. The small sterilizer with a fractionated vacuum process, built in series for the first time, manages without cold water for the first time and was developed in accordance with the principles of EN 13060. The equipment of the Vacuklav 31 with a patented, air-cooled vacuum system makes this autoclave a particularly high-performance, reliable device.

    Front view Type 25 autoclave

    MELAG type 25. MELAG - quality now in hospitals too.

    The cost situation in hospitals led to an outsourcing of increasing numbers of surgical operations to outpatient surgical clinics. The demand for practice-oriented large sterilizers (chamber volumes 80-100 litres) increased as a result, and with the type 25 MELAG provides a compact, high-performance large sterilizer in accordance with EN 285 for this area. The innovative construction with a patented internal steam generation and automatic conductivity measurement are just a few reasons for the major success of the type 25 in surgical clinics and hospitals.

    MELAquick 12. Top innovations for decontamination of handpieces.

    Since the early 1990s, leading hygienists and dental associations have been requesting that the manufacturers of sterilizers develop procedures for the rapid sterilization of dental handpieces. With the MELAquick 12, MELAG is the first European manufacturer to offer a safe procedure for the sterilization of unwrapped or wrapped handpieces in just six minutes. Thanks to its short operating times, simple operation, space-saving concept and reliability, MELAquick 12 became an important element of dental hygiene.

    MELAG Autoclave 30 EPS. Autoclaves now with electronic process monitoring.

    While conventional steam sterilizers still have what is known as a time switch to control the sterilization process, for the first time MELAG is relying on electronic parameter control (EPC) of the sterilization process, enabling the full documentation of the sterilization process by means of an integrated interface. The previously patented “aqua split” system is used in the Autoclave 30 EPS which, unlike in the case of other procedures, always enables the use of freshly demineralised water for sterilization.

    Steam sterilizers (autoclaves) were predominantly found in the hospital sector at this time. With the innovative steam autoclave type 150, MELAG made the sterilization technology, which is gentle on instruments because of its low temperature, available to private medical and dental practices too. Equipped with an innovative quick pressure releasesystem, the type 150 also has better options when it comes to instrument drying.

    Hot air sterilizer type C1. Compact and reliable. The journey starts.

    In an era in which the “boiling” of instruments in hot water was still very much the standard, the hot air sterilizer was deemed to be an innovative and above all safe alternative for the sterilization of instruments in practices and hospitals. The hot air sterilizer type C1 developed shortly after the company was founded was established as a highly reliable alternative to the competitor products on the market at the time.
