Top Loading Autoclave Perfect for Taller Loads

Jul 17 2017 Comments 0

For laboratories looking to sterilise tall items such as fermentors and large capacity Erlenmeyer flasks, or have a high-density load requirement but have limited floor space, latest version of the Priorclave C60 top loading autoclave could prove to be the perfect choice.

Designed and built by one of the UK’s leading autoclave manufacturers, the Priorclave compact C60 autoclave with its 60 litre stainless steel chamber can accommodate easily ten one-litre or sixteen 500ml bottles, alternatively six one-litre Erlenmeyer flasks. This highlights the versatility of an autoclave requiring just 472 x 620mm of floor space.

Through the push-button Tactrol®2 microprocessor control system users easily programme the sterilising parameters of time and temperature as well as select special features such as free‐steaming and media warming. Free steaming can improve air removal in difficult loads and/or reduce temperature lag between the load and the autoclave, reducing process time at higher temperatures. The media warming feature cycles the temperature between approximately 45º to 55ºC once the factory pre‐set temperature of 45ºC is reached, which continuous until the door is opened. This allows, for example, nutrient media to be held as a liquid until it is needed, especially when used along with the delayed start function.

Access to the sterilising chamber is gained through the patented Quickseal single-action door closure/opening mechanism which is designed for one handed operation and incorporates thermal and pressure locks that prevent opening at unsafe temperatures and pressure to prevent personal injury.

This versatile C60 top-loading autoclave range is available as a standard design or as a vacuum model, both versions are electrically heated with the elements contained within the actual chamber for faster and more efficient build-up of high-temperature, pressurised sterilising steam.

Also, the autoclave is equipped with castors it enables it to be easily moved when required and the fact that it plugs simply into a 13A socket to power-up, the Priorclave C60 top loading autoclave is one of the easiest and fastest to install.

Priorclave has incorporated Biomaster Protection into the exterior epoxy coating, a highly effective and permanent treatment for control of harmful bacteria, making any surface cleaner, more hygienic and providing durable lifelong protection against the threat of cross contamination.
