Title:
DISINFECTING DEVICE FOR ENDOSCOPE
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JPH03221027
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

PURPOSE: To rapidly and reliably disinfect even the interior of the line of an endoscope by feeding hydrogen peroxide gas in a washing tank and sucking the hydrogen peroxide gas in the line of the endoscope through a connection means by means of a suction means.

CONSTITUTION: In a disinfecting process, hydrogen peroxide gas generated in a generating unit 25 is fed through a line system 17 for feeding gas to the interior of a washing chamber 4. When the washing chamber is full of the gas, by switching switching valves 27 and 32, a vacuum pump 34 is run, and lines 41, 42, and 43 of an endoscope 3 are sucked through a feed discharge ripe 28, a connection mouthpiece 7, a feed discharge tube 53, and a connector 52. Each line and the interior of a cylinder can be disinfected in a way that the lines 41, 42, and 43 are full of hydrogen peroxide gas and a sufficiently penetrating state is maintained for a necessary time, and simultaneously the outer surface of the endoscope 3 can be also disinfected.
