Autoclave working hand due to the temperature gradient inside the object, the energy through heat conduction from the high temperature area is transferred to the low temperature region (Zhuo, 2008), on the other hand between the object surface and the motion of the fluid heat convection heat transfer will occur, so the autoclave at work when passing in the heat conduction and heat two kinds of heat convection.
