Cylindrical autoclaves improve sterilising throughput

15th April 2014

The QCS front loading autoclave range introduced by Priorclave should help any laboratory increase its sterilising throughput owing to the combination of improved load capacity and operating performance.

There may also be an added benefit of lower overall running costs associated with reduced power and water usage.

The QCS front-loading laboratory autoclaves with their large capacity 500mm diameter sterilising chambers should appeal to both in-house and contract laboratories serving industrial and research sectors, such as food and pharmaceutical.

The Priorclave QCS steam steriliser provides greater versatility where the scale of items to be sterilised may vary significantly. Both small and taller items can be processed in a single machine run, making it highly likely they will be able to cater for a laboratories entire daily throughput.

As part of its comprehensive standard range of laboratory autoclaves Priorclave has introduced three standard capacity QCS front-loading steam sterilisers - 100, 150 and 200 litres - delivering temperatures up to 140oC at 2.4 bar all easily controlled through the Tactrol 2 microprocessor system.  It allows for adjustment of temperature and time for simple cycles to fully featured multi-programme operation with printed records.  This powerful controller allows unrivalled flexibility, monitoring and management of the process cycle.
