Cylindrical Chamber Autoclaves More Energy Efficient

May 09 2023

Cylindrical (or round) chamber autoclaves manufactured by Priorclave are among the most energy efficient laboratory and research grade autoclaves currently available. These sterilisers are available with chamber capacities of 100, 150 to 200L and are now part of the new autoclave ranges recently announced by this British autoclave design and manufacturing company.

The energy efficiency of the front-loading cylindrical steam sterilisers come about due to the inherent strength of a cylindrical chamber design. The stainless-steel wall is normally thinner, which means faster heating to the correct sterilising temperature, thus reducing the overall sterilising processing time. Also, thinner chamber walls weigh less and is more economical to produce. This reflects in a lower cost of ownership for the laboratory manager.

The new ranges, Base and Smart, offer customers greater choice - more features and options included as standard. It helps customers select a Priorclave autoclave more easily, one that’s right for their specific requirements.

Each has a 500mm diameter chamber, believed to be largest currently available for this style of autoclave. They also offer a low loading height, wide door swing allowing easy loading of heavy loads from a trolley, advanced programming for simple to more complex sterilising tasks, effective use of power and water plus genuine operator safety.

These features of the front-loading sterilises, which are one of the safest and most efficient, will help any laboratory increase its sterilising throughput owing to the combination of improved load capacity and exceptional operating performance.

With Priorclave horizontal cylindrical chamber autoclaves, such is their potential for savings on energy and water usage, models are much in demand around the world. And across many diverse industrial sectors such as food, drink, dairy, pharmaceutical, agricultural, education, healthcare as well as numerous research and educational institutes within the public sector where stringent budgetary control is essential.

The sterilising process is programmed easily through the Tactrol® 3 controller. It presents a crystal-clear LCD display and provides a more simplistic approach to function settings, with simple to use day to day operation of Start, Vent and Door buttons. This powerful controller gives unrivalled flexibility, monitoring and management of the process cycle.

The build quality and performance of the Priorclave autoclave brand is unquestionable - robust, durable and reliable. Models also incorporates epoxy coated panels and frame members treated with an antimicrobial agent that is effective against bacteria and fungi including MRSA, E.coli, Listeria, Legionella, Campylobacter, Salmonella and Pseudomonas. Essential to help prevent cross contamination in a critical research laboratory.

The exacting standards maintained at every stage of cylindrical chamber production in Priorclave’s UK manufacturing centre ensures the operational longevity of every research grade laboratory autoclave. All products are supported by first class pre- and after-sales technical support and warranty.
