dc.description.abstract The boiling water disinfector consists of a metal box with a closely fitting lid; in some cases a gasket is fitted between the box and the lid. The water vapour should pass without obstruction via the lid. Inside, the disinfector has a perforated tray which is positioned to allow the water to circulate. The tray may be fitted with removable handles to take it out. Some models of disinfectors are equipped with a handle-operated mechanism for lifting the tray out of the water. The disinfector stands on four small feet allowing air to circulate around it and preventing damage to the underlying surface. Heating can be provided by electricity, a paraffin stove or any other heat source. In the electric models, heat is generated by an electric heating element, either of the immersion or the panel type. en_US
