Manufacturer Narrative

A steris service technician arrived onsite to inspect the sterilizer and found that the hose that connects the sterilizer to the facility's water line was leaking. Upon further inspection, the technician identified that the hose shakes when the water supply is turned on and off causing the hose to rub against the sterilizer. This caused the hose to wear over time creating a hole in the hose and the reported event to occur. To resolve the issue the technician replaced the hose, ran a test cycle, and confirmed the unit to be operational. The technician positioned the hose in such a way that it would no longer rub against the unit when the water supply is turned on and off. The unit was manufactured in 2015 and is under steris service agreement for maintenance activities. No additional issues have been reported.
