Q63 Autoclave Reduces High-Throughput Sterilisation Costs

Nov 07 2017 Comments 0

Q63-320 litre front-loading laboratory and research grade autoclaves from Priorclave offer exceptional reliability and unparalleled energy, water, and lifetime cost savings, and are one of the first to receive an ACT certificate that quantities its superb energy efficiency credentials.  And with a taller chamber profile than that found in most ‘cylindrical’ machines they can boost lab efficiency and low costs by sterilising larger bulky items as well as small and taller items in a single process.

Since chamber size has a major influence on autoclave selection, Priorclave purposefully designed the cylindrical chamber of the Q63 with a taller profile than that found in most ‘cylindrical’ machines. It has a 630mm chamber which is 1025mm deep and a low convenient loading height of just 725mm. The impressive load capacity has proven to give lab equipment purchaser a strong viable alternative to large more costly rectangular chamber autoclaves.

Whilst offering increased loading, the combination of features such as forced air cooling to reduce cycle times and automatic timed free-steaming for improved air removal add to the overall sterilizing performance of the Q63 autoclave.

Another key inherent advantage is improved steam circulation, preventing cold pockets and assuring complete sterilization without excessive cycle times.

All operating settings are programmed easily through the Tactrol®2 microprocessor controller which is standard across the entire Priorclave range. This can be configured to log all temperature, pressure time and cycle data into a single compact archive file which can be subsequently downloaded onto a USB flash drive for transfer to computer. This enables operational data to be forwarded from anywhere in the world direct to Priorclave’s dedicated Service Centre for technical assistance in fine-tuning and clarification of autoclave performance if required.

Priorclave is a British autoclave design engineering company with its own dedicated UK manufacturing centre. It produces an impressive range of top and front loading steam sterilisers including benchtop as well as front loading cylindrical and rectangular machine, power door and pass-through and stackable designs. The Priorclave brand, a household name within the global laboratory autoclave market, has become synonymous with quality, reliability and highly efficient autoclaving processes.

The build quality of the Q63 – 320L front loading laboratory and research autoclaves incorporated epoxy coated panels and frame members which are treated with an anti-bacterial agent highly effective against all bacteria and fungi including MRSA, preventing cross contamination within the laboratory.

The Priorclave Q63 320 litre autoclave provides laboratories a real opportunity to consider this more economically priced cylindrical chamber design rather than investing in a large rectangular chamber steam steriliser when large loads require sterilisations.  Users of the Q63 autoclave may also benefit from lower overall running costs associated with reduced power and water usage.
