    my tuttnauer 2340M leaves a green residue in the bottom of the chamber after a sterilization cycle has completed. chamber brite is used on a regular basis, once to twice a week. could the residue come from the copper piping?

    Hi Thomas,

    Thank you for posting here so others who have the same problem can benefit.

    First, are you using distilled water only?

    Most often, when not caused by using normal tap water, the source of the green residue starts with the instruments being sterilized having contaminates on them (some kind of debris).

    This debris generally ends up in the reservoir and in turn everywhere the water travels, including the reservoir. This will cause the green residue to emerge from the copper tubing.

    To stop the green residue once and for all, you will need to go through you Tuttnauer and remove the copper tubing and clean it on the inside. You can use your Ultrasonic cleaner if you have one or a bottle brush.

    You also will need to clean the reservoir and replace the filters.

    Be sure to clean each item thoroughly before placing in the autoclave for sterilization.

    If you have any questions or if there is anyway I can be of assistance, please let me know

    thank you for your help, i did take out the condenser coil to clean the water tank and noticed there was a hole in the coil, i have ordered a coil from allclave and will replace it, i\’m hopeing this was the source of the green. if that fails i will have to follow your directions of cleaning the copper tubes. we do use de-mineralized water and chamber brite and the instruments are cleaned thoroughly before sterilization.

    Its my pleasure to be of assistance Thomas.

    Yes, the Tuttnauer 2340 coils do become pitted and get pinholes in them over time. I am glad you found it! Rplacing it now will save you from a lot of problems down the line.

    Please let me know if the coil takes care of eliminating the green residue p.
