Title: Use of the Solar Panel Cooker for Medical Pressure Steam Sterilization

Author: Barbara Kerr and Jim Scott

Date: July 2006 (Presented at the Solar Cookers and Food Processing International Conference in Granada, Spain)

Abstract: The expense, unreliability or unavailability of fuel and electricity in many areas hampers the ability of medical facilities to autoclave implements and supplies. This paper describes the adaptation of a large, simple, lowcost panel cooker to greatly reduce the reliance on conventional heat sources. The hybrid apparatus integrates propane for backup in case the available sunlight is insufficient. In good sunlight, sterilization runs can be completed on solar power alone. The efficient design also reduces fuel use even when no sunlight is available. The concept and operating guidelines for practical clinical use draw on the principal author’s experience as a surgical nurse. Described are the principles of operation, design, construction and experimental results for a prototype unit – including verification of sterilization. The apparatus is also highly effective for general cooking, pressure-cooking and pressure food preservation (“canning”). The wind and rainproof design allows efficient and reliable operation under all weather conditions.
