Frequently Asked Questions
How hard is this to install in my garage?
- Installation is the same as installing a new outlet for a dryer or a electric vehicle. We recommend consulting your local electrician to help with that part. The unit comes ready for a plug of your choice. You can purchase a male and female 30 AMP Single Phase plug at any hardware store.
What is the process to sterilize grain bags?
- Prepare your grain bags like normal. Remove the two stainless steel baskets, add around 4 -4.5 Gallons of filtered water. Load your grain bags in a circular pattern stacking to the top. You can load them any way you would like. Once grain bags/jars are loaded close the top and tighten the clamps. We recommend starting with control panel settings of 121° Celsius and 3 hours and 30 minute sterilization time when full. The other option is whether you want it to shut off and cool down naturally when finished or a computerized slow vent. The slow vent option takes about 20 minutes to exhaust pressure and is nice for doing back to back cycles.
How long does it take to cool after sterilizing?
- There are two options after the cook cycle is done. The first option is for the machine to turn off and slowly cool naturally. This takes about 3-4 hours. The second option is a computerized slow venting of the pressure. This option is great for running the machine back to back. The autoclave will slowly exhaust the pressure in about 15-25 mins.
How much substrate or grain can I sterilize at once?
- The 150L Model can sterilize 128-140 lbs of grain or substrate per cycle, depending on the bag size and loading configuration. The inner chamber size is approximately 20.5" wide X 29.5" Tall.
