C60 imageThe versatile C60 top-loading laboratory autoclaves available from Priorclave are the ideal sterilisers for laboratories looking to process tall items such as fermentors and large capacity Erlenmeyer flasks or they have a high-density load requirement but have limited floor space.

Designed and built by one of the UK’s leading autoclave manufacturers, the Priorclave compact C60 autoclave with its 60 litre stainless steel, top loading chamber can accommodate easily ten one-litre or sixteen 500ml bottles or six one-litre Erlenmeyer flasks. This highlights the versatility of a laboratory and research grade autoclave that requires just 472 x 620mm of floor space.

This model is available as a standard design or with a vacuum facility and has the electrical heating elements contained within the actual chamber.  This provides for faster and more efficient build-up of high-temperature, pressurised sterilising steam.  It makes the C60 autoclave an extremely cost-efficient autoclave ideal for either continuous or periodic sterilising requirements.  The latest datasheet shows the overall capabilities of this compact top-loading autoclave

Access to the sterilising chamber is gained through the patented Quickseal single-action door closure/opening mechanism designed for one handed operation and incorporates thermal and pressure locks preventing opening at unsafe temperatures and pressure to prevent personal injury.

Programming of the sterilising set-up of time and temperature as well as selection of special features such as free‐steaming and media warming is through easy a push-button interface on the advanced Tactrol®2 microprocessor control system. Features such as free steamingcan improve air removal in difficult loads and/or reduce temperature lag between the load and the autoclave, reducing process time at higher temperatures.  It also incorporates a mediawarming feature that cycles the temperature between approximately 45o to 55oC once the factory pre‐set temperature of 45oC has been reached.  This continuous until the door is opened, allowing nutrient media, for example, to be held as a liquid until it is needed, especially when used along with the delayed start function.

The compact, C60 top-loading autoclaves is fitted with castors, enabling it to be moved easily when required and the fact that it simply plugs into a 13A socket it is easiest and fastest to install.

Buy Priorclave autoclaves in the knowledge that every care has been taken to build robust machines with a superior exterior finish to body panels and frames preventing potential for cross-contamination within laboratories.
