New small steam sterilisers complete the Miele system for instrument reprocessing

Gütersloh/Cologne, March 12, 2019 No. 20/2019

  • Cube and Cube X sterilisers to meet the needs of individual practices

  • EcoDry technology adjusts drying times to loads

One Miele highlight at the IDS 2019 will be four new countertop sterilisers with chamber volumes of 17 or 22 l. Their short cycles, intuitive user interface and an innovative drying concept support dentists in the daily reprocessing of their instruments. These small steam sterilisers are due for launch in September 2019.

Both product lines, Cube and Cube X, consist of two models with 17 and 22 l chamber volumes. Cube models offer all the functionalities for sterilisation in a modern dental surgery. Cube X models also boast many additional innovative features. All sterilisers feature an easily surveyed colour touch display. Programmes are selected fast using easy-to-understand symbols.

With their short cycles lasting for example only 19 minutes, the Cube X models guarantee fast instrument turnaround in a B-class cycle. Furthermore, these models feature the latest EcoDry technology which adjusts drying times to the load size. This shortens reprocessing, prolongs the life of instruments and reduces energy consumption. Fast connection of machines to water pre-treatment systems providing an automatic and time-saving supply of fully demineralised water is a particularly convenient feature. Alternatively, the integrated tank can be filled manually.

The new Miele sterilisers require little maintenance and perform automatic and periodic diagnosis cycles. In addition to this, Cube X controls offer the opportunity to programme recurring sequences, allowing a vacuum and helix test to be performed automatically before the first patients even arrive.

All sterilisers offer the option of gap-free documentation of process data. On some models, barcode labels can even be printed immediately. When it comes to connectivity, Cube models can be connected to external systems via a LAN interface; Cube X models come 'WiFi-ready', thereby offering numerous options to transfer data to third-party systems.
