The Compact C40 vacuum autoclave is a versatile wide-format priorclave with a 40l, front-loading chamber and incorporating pre-vacuum and post-vacuum cycles. The combination of the two vacuum phases makes the C40 steam steriliser ideal for laboratory waste, glassware and instruments as well as porous or wrapped goods. The pre-vacuum mode efficiently removes ambient air from the chamber and load, allowing steam to completely penetrate the product whilst the post-vacuum cycle pulls steam and condensate out of the autoclave during this drying phase, the longer the vacuum runs the cooler and dryer the load. The overall benefit is a faster cycle time, making the C40 priorclave suited to applications where a higher daily throughout is required or where delays in sterilisation are of concern.
As this model is ideally suited for installation in a CAT 3 laboratory it is fitted with an optional exhaust filtration system so that all autoclave exhaust is filtered.
In addition to the new stand-off legs, all Priorclave Compact C40 autoclaves are available with an extended range of optional features normally found only on much larger steam sterilisers. This creates a brand that can turn its steam sterilisation capability to many business sectors including food, drink, dairy, pharmaceutical, veterinary, agricultural, education, healthcare, research establishments as well as industrial laboratories.
