New Bigger Capacity Autoclave - 500 Litre Capacity
Priorclave has launched its largest cylindrical chamber steam sterilizer as part of the popular and established Q63 autoclave range which is renowned for its affordability, high pack density and has proven ideal for accepting taller than average items. This new 500 litre autoclave from Priorclave also brings benefits of a lower loading height and single-handed door closure system for easy laboratory practicality.
The new 500 litre autoclave, model Q63/EH500, is the largest cylindrical-chamber steam steriliser in Priorclave's extensive product range. It retains all the same build quality and conforms to the same stringent manufacturing standards set by this leading British company.
Whilst 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 will add to the overall sterilising performance of the new Q63 autoclave.
The new Q63 - 500 litre front-loading steam steriliser also features a lower loading height to assist lab staff with chamber loading/unloading, is castor mounted for ease of positioning, and is fitted with two non-tipping shelves and comes with a choice of optional items such as stainless steel baskets, waste containers and loading trolleys, all designed to enhance the efficiency of laboratory sterilising operations.
The build quality of the new autoclave designed and manufactured at Priorclaves manufacturing centre in London uses epoxy coated panels and frame members treated with an anti-bacterial agent which is highly effective against all bacteria and fungi including MRSA, key factors in preventing cross contamination within the laboratory.
All operating settings are programmed easily through the Tactrol® 2 microprocessor controller which is standard across the entire Priorclave range. A feature of the new Q63/EH500 is that the control system 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. The operational data then can 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.
Priorclave, a household name within the global laboratory autoclave market, has developed and manufactures an impressive range of top and front loading steam sterilisers that include benchtop as well as front loading rectangular, power door and double-ended designs, laboratory autoclaves synonymous with quality, reliability and highly effective autoclaving processes.
The addition of the Q63/EH500 with its 500 litre cylindrical-chamber capacity has extended the Priorclave standard autoclave range and is expected to become as popular as the Q63/320 model, and depending on operational requirements can be supplied for electrical or direct steam heating.
