The VARIO time and temperature control features four preset and one variable cycle. The variable cycle is stored in permanent memory so that it can be instantly recalled for the next use. The control shows a countdown of sterilisation time and current temperature at all times. Operation is very simple. The cycle temperature and time are selected by pressing either one of the four preset cycle buttons or the variable cycle button. If the variable cycle is chosen the temperature and time are then set to the values required. The Start button is then pressed and the unit automatically runs through the sterilisation cycle unattended. At the end of sterilisation an audible sound is given to allow the user to drain off the water, if the drying vacuum cycle is required. The unit then cools until it reaches a safe temperature for the contents to be removed, at which point another audible sound is given.

The VARIO 5035/ST5035V is made from stainless steel with a polished exterior for easier cleaning. The lid is removable for full width access. Items to be sterilised can be placed in the inner liner provided with the machine. Alternately, Dressing Drums and Wire Mesh Baskets are available. The lid locking device is comprised of six wing nuts and six locking lugs. This ensures that the lid cannot be opened while the vessel is under pressure. After the sterilising period, a condensing vacuum is drawn to aid drying. This is particularly useful for dressings and drapes.

The VARIO 5035/ST5035V is particularly suitable for destructive sterilisation. The operator is not restricted to a set sterilising period. This can be adjusted to suit the application.
