This is a range of general purpose autoclaves containing exceptional features designed to enhance cycle performance and safety. They include a pneumatic door lock and seal, an 8-programme touch screen control panel, an air ballast system for fluid cycles, a load-sensed process timer, and a fan assisted cooling system. The R range includes 40, 60, 120 and 160 litre models with operating temperatures of between 105°C and 136°C. The 40 litre model is compact bench-top model, while the three larger models are floor standing with top or front loading configurations and castors for easy relocation.

Mediclave Autoclave

Our Mediclave range of autoclaves are some of the best medical steam sterilizers available on the market. Incorporating a number of innovative features which improve running cycles and efficiency, these units are available in 6, 18 and 23 litre models.

All of our models comply with the relevant directives and feature a one-piece high specification stainless steel pressure vessel with an exceptionally smooth interior. An LCD control panel allows the user to select from 12 pre-programmed cycles that have been installed into each model. A separate steam generator helps reduce cycle times, and because there are no heaters in the bottom of the chamber, the vessel is kept clean and unencumbered.
