SOLE Class B Autoclave 17 and 22 litres
SOLE meets your clinic’s biosafety standards, guaranteeing perfect sterilisation of your instruments and other materials used for carrying out your profession.
SOLE: THE PERFECT COMBINATION OF DESIGN AND FUNCTION
SOLE is a Class B autoclave with a simple, elegant design, easy to operate and highly efficient, with a modern automatic opening system and adaptable software® exclusively designed for Trident.
- Depending on the characteristics of the load to be sterilised, SOLE offers 12 different sterilisation cycles to choose from, including the class B cycles and two programmable, customisable cycles compliant with the minimum regulatory standards in force in terms of the type of vacuum, exposure time and drying time.
- SOLE has 3 testing and validation cycles: vacuum test, helix test and B&D test.
- The rapid cycle sterilises appropriately packed hollow and porous materials in just 28 minutes.
- The SOLE chamber is in stainless steel. It is a single block, without welded seams liable to cause rusting, leaks or cracks where microorganisms can collect. The SOLE chamber has a capacity of 17 or 22 litres.
- The tray holder can be rotated, and can hold up to 5 trays or boxes for instruments.
- The water tank is positioned in such a way as to facilitate inspection and cleaning, thus helping to keep the water used for sterilisation in excellent conditions.
- The water filter shows how far up the tanks should be filled so as to prevent malfunctioning of the machine due to lack of water.
- SOLE calibrates the pressure and temperature probes in real time, thus guaranteeing an effective measurement of the temperature and the pressure inside the chamber. The permanent calibration of the probes makes it possible to prevent unnecessary overheating, which could damage the load, or insufficient heating, which would result in the loads not being sterilised properly.
- SOLE is equipped with a self-diagnostic system for the main components in order to guarantee proper functioning of the machine.
- The vacuum pump plays an important role in the process of generating the dry saturated steam. SOLE is equipped with an exclusive vacuum pump designed for Trident, able to carry out three fractionated vacuum processes at -0.80 Bar, which extract 98% of the air contained inside the chamber, guaranteeing the perfect atmosphere for the generation of dry saturated steam.
- The instant steam generator allows for faster cycles, thus optimising the consumption of water in relation to the load.
- LCD screen that displays the various messages that launches the machine, including the operating manual.
Display messages are available in various languages.
- The buttons on the panel identify the basic functions of the machine and guide the user through the various options on the menu.
- Front water loading and unloading system.
- USB connection that allows the user to extract and store the information on the sterilisation cycles in a .txt file for traceability purposes.
- “On” switch on the front of the machine.
SOLE is a smart machine that tells you:
- When to adjust the default values of the pressure inside the device, to allow for maximum efficacy in areas at very high altitudes.
- When to replace parts liable to cause irreversible damage to the autoclave, thus helping to prolong the useful life of the machine. When these parts are worn out, a message will appear on the screen.
- The quality of the water used in the sterilisation process, by means of the conductivity meters installed in the loading tank.
- When to clean the water tanks.
It also allows you:
- Through a dedicated interface, to monitor the sterilisation cycle via PC, create graphs and observe the functioning of the machine in real time.
- Customise the handling of the machine by limiting access to authorised operators only. SOLE creates an entry password for each user, thus limiting handling of the machine on the part of unauthorised staff. The user information is registered on the labels and on the report for each cycle.
- Block the door once the cycle has started, using an exclusive safety system that prevents unexpected opening of the door once the cycle has started.
- Open the machine manually in the event of prolonged electrical failure.
- Automatically update the firmware using a USB flash drive.
- Easily transfer the sterilisation cycle data from the autoclave to the computer for storage and to allow for traceability of the cycles effectively carried out.
- Prolong drying time.
- DROP: water filtration system that guarantees a continual supply of pure water. The filter installed on the water tank is equipped with an osmotic membrane and a series of cartridge filters able to keep the water clean and maintain the sedimentation specifications required for the autoclave.

- Automatic water loading system. A small suction pump is installed on the back of the autoclave to facilitate automatic water loading.
- Adhesive label printer to print the data on each sterilisation cycle, the name of the user, the date and the cycle used.
Now Sole comes with DROP, the most innovative, environmentally friendly and economical system to produce demineralized water.
Dentistry professionals and their patients are exposed to a wide variety of microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, fungi, prions) that can cause contagious infectious diseases, mainly as a result of the use of sharp or cutting instruments and permanent contact with potentially contaminated body fluids. In addition, both clinic staff and patients may be carriers of pathogenic microorganisms, so a variety of methods and protective measures must be adopted in order to prevent cross infection.
One of the procedures contemplated in the standards regarding Biosafety in Dentistry with a view to cutting the risk of contagious infectious diseases being transmitted through blood and other oral secretions is the elimination of microorganisms from the inanimate objects destined for patient care. This process is known as Sterilisation, and one of the main ways it is carried out is by means of humid heat sterilisation in an autoclave.
With regard to autoclave sterilisation, the most important parameters to take into consideration are time, temperature, pressure and steam quality. If the steam is not dry saturated, i.e. entirely free of water, the risk is that the sterilisation process may be carried out at high temperatures, but using steam that contains very little heat energy. Only saturated steam is able to guarantee the transmission of sufficient heat energy to guarantee proper, efficient sterilisation.
