Chamber size has a major influence on autoclave selection. Priorclave, therefore, designed the cylindrical chamber of the Priorclave Q63 with a taller profile than that found in most ‘cylindrical’ machines, making these autoclaves suited to sterilising larger bulky items, as well as enabling small and taller items could be sterilised in a single process.
The all-round design benefits of the Q63 cylindrical chamber autoclave will appeal to laboratory managers in diverse industrial sectors such as food, drink, dairy, pharmaceutical, agricultural, education, healthcare as well as dedicated research establishments wanting a more affordable high-capacity autoclave. It also presents a real opportunity to acquire a more economically priced autoclave than invest in a large rectangular chamber laboratory autoclave.
This 320 litre capacity autoclave has a 630mm chamber and comes with a convenient, low loading height of just 725mm and features the Quickseal single-action door opened fitted with thermal and pressure locks to prevent opening at load temperature above 80oC and pressures above 0.2 bar.
While offering increased load capacity for sterilsation, 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 sterilising performance of the Q63 autoclave. It is suitable for sterilising applications such as media preparation, liquids and diluent, waste, glassware instruments and apparatus that requires superior cleansing.
All operating settings are programmed easily through the Tactrol 2 microprocessor controller; from simple cycles to fully featured multi-program operation with printed records, this powerful control system gives unrivalled flexibility and monitoring. Control options are available for every autoclaving need. Tactrol 2 is extremely simple to use, just set the temperature and time required, select any options needed and press start. A tough, clear control panel with digital displays continuously provides information on status.
Packed with self-monitoring systems, Tactrol 2 has pre-set actions for events such as power failure or low water levels. There are also a number of built-in features allowing cycle optimisation for the diverse functions demanded by the modern laboratory.
The 320 litre Q63 front loading autoclave has a 630mm chamber which is 1025mm deep and for easy, convenient loading Priorclave has given the Q63 a loading height of just 725mm.
While 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 sterilising performance of the Q63 autoclave.
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 UK Service Centre for technical assistance in fine-tuning and clarification of autoclave performance if required.
The build of the Priorclave front loading Q63 autoclave incorporates epoxy coated panels and frame members treated with an anti-bacterial agent that is highly effective and permanent treatment for control of harmful bacteria, making surfaces cleaner, more hygienic and providing durable lifelong protection against the threat of cross contamination. This tough special epoxy finish is proven to reduce bacterial growth by up to 99.99% and is highly effective against MRSA, E.coli, Listeria, Legionella, Campylobacter, Salmonella, Pseudomonas and more than 50 other species.
