Small Versatile Benchtop Autoclave

publication date: Jun 27, 2018
author/source: Priorclave Ltd

20180626Whether you are planning a start-up laboratory, an established lab with low sterilising throughputs, creating a Cat 3 laboratory or a lab manager wanting a more affordable, simple to operate and easy to install steam steriliser, the self-contained Priorclave C40 benchtop laboratory autoclave is the perfect choice. 

It is a compact, featured-packed and competitively priced autoclave offering truly exceptional value and requires simply plugging directly into a 230V supply to get it fully operational.

Every sterilising process is easily programmed through the proven TACTROL® controller - just set temperature and time, select any options needed and press start, operation is fully automatic once the cycle has started.

There are a number of options available in the C40 benchtop range.  In addition to the standard format this benchtop range of laboratory autoclaves and research sterilisers is available with stand-off legs providing significant advantages to designated CAT 3 application areas, allowing much easier access beneath the autoclave for cleaning and disinfection of the laboratory work surface.  This helps prevent spread of virus and eliminate potential cross contamination. 

Adding to the versatility of this C40 autoclave range from Priorclave is an option to be fitted with a highly efficient vacuum system.  This is ideal for those research laboratories carrying out low-volume sterilisation of items such as bagged mixed plastic waste, tubing and narrow bore glass ware.

Each model in the C40 laboratory autoclave range has a 40 litre, 350mm diameter chamber which is accessed through a wide aperture door for easy loading and removal and one that incorporates a high level of personnel safety with interlock preventing opening at elevated temperatures and pressures.

Designed and manufactured by one of Britain’s top laboratory autoclave producer, it has an extremely small footprint, ensuring that even the smallest laboratory could consider this highly efficient and reliable front loading benchtop autoclave.  Investing in the Priorclave brand gives access to an exceptional level of customer pre and after-sales support through a dedicated team always on-hand to provide expert advice, ensuring each and every laboratory maximises the use of these robust autoclaves.

The C40 benchtop autoclave is part of an extensive Priorclave laboratory autoclave range that includes compact top loading machines, large format frontloading and powerdoor autoclaves as well as double-door autoclaves, pass-through and stackable units. Priorclave has also developed a large range of add-ons that can be fitted during manufacture, tailoring each autoclave purchase, ensuring it delivers the ultimate sterilising performance matched to the application.

With all Priorclave products, at the end of the normal warranty period, this dedicated autoclave manufacturer is able to ensures that their autoclave’s offer exceptional operational longevity.  Planned Maintenance Programmes help maintain full functionality, reliability and sterilising performance which reduces very significantly the overall cost of ownership.
