The Ultra Clean Systems Model 1101
For new machines shipped from the manufacturer, hoses should be located in the tray inside the machine.
Install the cold-water hose by inserting the end of the blue hose into the quick-connect labeled “Cold,” then connect the other end to your cold water source. One end of the red hose connects to the fitting labeled “Hot,” with the other end connected to your hot water source. The black hose is connected to the “Drain” fitting on one end and your facility drain connection on the other. Connect the air hose to the “Air” fitting and the other end to your compressed air source. Then check the air regulator. Air pressure can be adjusted by pulling out on the outside of the gauge, turning until the arrow is over the proper PSI, then pressing in to lock.
Next, connect the rinse hose quick connector to the “Rinse” connection on your machine and the other end to your rinse water source. This step is optional for those facilities that want to rinse with reverse osmosis or deionized water. Attach the detergent hose to the “Detergent’ connector, and the other end to the detergent stick, which should be inserted into your detergent bottle. Once all hoses are connected, connect the power cable to the back of your machine. You are now ready to turn on the power.
For details on how to properly load instruments into the baskets, refer to the basket loading video.
Once the tray is loaded with instruments, place it into the basin keeping the port cutouts toward the front of the machine. Attach the quick-connect hoses from the basket to the ports inside of the basin. Once the basket is loaded properly, close the lid.
To log in to your system, press the “Enter Number” box on the screen. A number pad will be displayed where you should enter your identification/login code and press “Enter.” The default login code is 9-7-1-3. This will bring up the “Menu 1” screen.
To adjust the preset timers, select the timer button from “Menu 1.” A number pad will pop up; the authorization code is 1-1-0-1, followed by the Enter button. This gives you access to change the many timers in your machine, as well as other settings. These settings should only be changed by supervisors or technicians.
In page one of the timers menu, the first option is the “Fill Timer,” which sets the duration for filling the machine with water at the beginning of a cycle. “Add Detergent” time is preset and should not be changed. The “Close Lid” setting determines the amount of time you have to close the lid before an alarm sounds. “Degas Basin” is for facilities that have extremely hard water or high amounts of gas. The default is set at only one second. The “Drain” time is preset and should not be changed. “Rinse Time” is the number of seconds that rinse water goes through the instruments on a lumen cycle or a “Rinse and Drain Only” cycle. “Buzzer” is the number of seconds that the buzzer will sound during alarms. “Air Purge” is the number of seconds that air gets pushed through lumen instruments. “Add Detergent in Ounces” determines the amount of detergent that is added and can be changed. “Sonic Power” is the percentage of ultrasonics before getting a low sonic alarm. This setting should not be changed.
Press the top right arrow to advance to page two of the “Timers” menu. The “Short Time” is the length of time for short cycles and is preset to 480 seconds, or 8 minutes. The “Long Time” is the length of time for long cycles and is preset to 780 seconds, or 13 minutes. “Temperature” is the basin water temperature setting and should never be changed.
Pressing the top right arrow again will bring up “Menu 1” screen. To add and remove assigned operators in the system, select the “Supervisor/Tech” button. Enter the code 3179 and press “Enter” to access this menu. To view a list of operators and their login information, press the “Operator Assignments” button. Up to 50 operators can be assigned logins for each machine. To create or delete an operator login, press the name entry box and type their name using the keypad, then select “Enter.” To enter their identification number, press the number entry box, and type their ID number followed by pressing “Enter.” To assign their storage location number on the operator assignments log, press the number entry box and assign their number followed by pressing “Enter.” Once all of the information is entered, select “Record Operator Data” to create the new operator login.
To delete a login for a particular operator, enter in all of the operator’s data, then press “Erase Operator Data.” This will remove the operator login from the assignment list and prevent operation by that user. If open access to this machine is desired without the need for logins, press the “Login Required” button to turn that feature off. To reinstate the use of logins, press and hold the “Login Not Required” button until it changes to “Login Required.”
To save the Datalog information using UCS Verify, insert the USB thumb drive into the port on the right side of the front panel. When the menu appears on screen, select “Transfer SD Datalog to USB.” Once the data is transferred, press “Acknowledge” and then cancel out of that menu. Press “Eject USB” to remove the thumb drive and, if desired, select “Erase Datalog Data.”
To begin a cycle, go back to “Menu 1” and press the “Operator” button, which will bring up the “Basin Select” screen. From this screen, you have an input/output button, a menu button, basin select, stop button, time, temperature and ultrasonic percentage. Press the “Basin Select” button to select which kind of cycle you want to run.
This brings up the “Cycle Select” menu. From this menu you can choose from two basket cycles. The short cycles have an 8-minute ultrasonic duration, and long cycles have a 13-minute ultrasonic duration. “Short Wash” and “Long Wash” will wash but not drain, for times when you want to conserve and reuse water. “Short Wash Drain” and “Long Wash Drain” will drain the basin after the wash cycle.
Lumen cycles are for instruments that need to be flushed, such as laparoscopic, robotic and orthopedic instruments. The “Short Lumen Cycle” will wash for 8-minutes”, drain, rinse and air purge. The “Long Lumen Wash” will do the same but with a 13-minute wash. Once a lumen wash cycle has started, you can adjust the flow control, as needed.
The “Rinse and Air Purge” button can be used when you want to perform an extra rinse and air purge. “Drain Only” simply empties a basin that was left full.
If you need to abort a cycle for any reason, simply press the “Stop” button.
Operators should log out of the system after the cycle has finished running. To do this, simply press “Logout” from “Menu 1.”
At the end of each day, operators should clean the water level sensors inside the machine. Using a clean cotton swab, clean the primary level sensor and the overflow sensor. Also, the basin filter should be changed at least once per 8 hour shift.
