Upgrade to Cooling Fan on Square Section Autoclaves Announced

Jan 07 2021 Read 292 Times

Astell Scientific Ltd has upgraded the internal cooling fan mechanism on its AVS machines to provide a more cost effective and reliable method of cooling liquid loads quickly. 

Previously, a magnetic coupling drove the in-chamber fan. This has been refined to a fixed rotary shaft with gas seals, which provides a more consistent, higher torque output from the fan whilst also requiring less maintenance.

“The internal cooling fan can more than double the throughput of a fluid and media preparation autoclave, effectively making the steam steriliser as productive as a device twice its size by reducing the cooling part of the cycle by up to 70%,” explained Astell’s Sales and Marketing Director, Paul Birchmore.

Astell Scientific provide customisable autoclaves a wide range of additional options, and can provide solutions to sterilisation challenges that others can’t.
