Autoclave devices are surgically used devices which have the ability to heat things above the boiling temperature so that the object inside gets sterilized. Sterilization refers to killing of bacteria and germs on surgical instruments that might have accumulated while they were being used on other patients. Autoclaves are specially designed and made according to the heat that is demanded. In case you want to sterilize something, insert the object into the autoclave and turn on the heat. There are two knobs present on the autoclave. One is of the temperature and other is the timer. You can select the perfect temperature and the number of minutes you want the object to be sterilized. There is also an indicator showing that the temperature inside the autoclave has gone beyond 100 degrees Celsius.

After this, you can reuse the surgical instruments again as many times as you want.
