Priorclave designs, manufactures and services laboratory autoclaves, specifically targeted toward the healthcare industry, ranging from bench-top to large capacity models with power operated doors and steam jackets.
The TACTROL® control system and BioCote® powder coating technology that inhibit the growth of a wide range of micro-organisms are common to all models.
The healthcare environment represents a significant percentage of Priorclave’s core business and demands continuing review and innovation to deliver the right technology.
Low-volume users benefit from the Compact range, which includes the 40L capacity bench-top and the 60L capacity floor-standing unit, which has lockable castors that make it ideal for confined areas.
The top loading 100L–150L and front loading 100L–200L autoclave models with cylindrical vessels have a 500mm diameter for more effective loading and are available for electric heating or for connection to plant steam. Top loaders feature low loading heights for operator comfort and safety while the front loaders, with their larger 200L chambers, are useful for autoclaving heavy or bulky items.
Where bulky or high-volume throughput is the norm these small-footprint units are recommended. While available in 235L, 350L, 450L and 700L capacities, the 235L and 350L models fit through a standard door.
Those with power doors can be supplied as stand-alone cabinet autoclaves or built into a fascia panel in a plant room installation. A steam / water jacket can also be fitted to all these models.
With a 320L capacity chamber, the Q63 autoclave (the front loading option) complements the smaller 100L top loading version.
These are designed for installation through a wall enabling two-way sterilisation traffic. The totally sealed unit with interlocking doors maintains integrity during the cycle.
