Autoclave Steam Sterilization
The process of autoclave steam sterilization has a rich history, dating back to ancient Rome.  Heat sterilization was practiced, with moisture aiding in the rapid penetration of heat, particularly through steam sterilization.  The invention of the autoclave in 1879 revolutionized this method, combining high heat, moisture, and elevated pressure for effective sterilization.

Operational Procedure:

The autoclave operates as a sealed container resembling a pressure cooker.  Items to be sterilized are placed inside and the unit is sealed.
Subsequently, high-temperature steam is introduced under high pressure, displacing air within the chamber.  Moist heat effectively eradicates microorganisms by causing irreversible coagulation and denaturation of enzymes and structural proteins.
Timing and Conditions:

Duration and temperature requirements vary based on pressure levels and the specific type of microorganisms targeted.
Once the designated timeframe elapses, the steam is released, and the sterilized items can be retrieved.
A complete cycle typically spans 15 to 60 minutes in batch processing mode.

Autoclave sterilization is most suitable for items that can withstand humidity, high pressure (1 to 3.5 atmospheres above ambient), and elevated temperatures (+121°C to +148°C).  Surgical instruments are common candidates for this method.
Semiconductor devices generally tolerate up to +125°C;  however, exposing embedded batteries to high temperatures may significantly impact their longevity.
Memory devices using floating-gate technology, like EEPROMs, can be sensitive to extreme heat.  Data integrity loss may occur unless specified retention parameters are met (e.g., 10 years at +125°C).  Regular data refreshing might be necessary to maintain full charge on the floating gates, particularly for laser-trimmed EEPROMs.
