They are extensively used within many industries including food, drink, dairy, pharmaceutical, agricultural, education, healthcare, research establishments and industry.

Features include:
• Operation up to 140C – 2.5 Bar.
• Quickseal 2 single action closure
• Operation from standard 13 Amp socket (UK)
• Complete with thermocouple entry and test ports
• Forced air cooling as standard helping to reduce cycle times
• Automatic timed freesteaming as standard for improved air removal and sterilising performance
• Delayed start and media warming function as standard for ready to pour media at the start of the day

A large selection of options and accessories is available to help to get the most from your Priorclave autoclave.

All models are fitted with the TACTROL microprocessor control system. After setting your required operating parameters press the start button for a fully automatic cycle. The control panel shows cycle status with digital readouts of temperature and time that can be viewed simultaneously. Temperature and time settings are fully adjustable within the operating range of the autoclave.

Pressure vessels are fully CE marked and insurance approved to the European PED 97/23/EC. The autoclaves fully conform to BS2646-1993, BS5500 Cat.3, and EMC directives, amongst others.
The autoclave door is fully interlocked for safety with a special safety gate mechanism, which cracks the gasket seal allowing any residual pressure to safely escape. A thermal cooling lock, preventing the door from being opened until the contents have cooled to a safe temperature is also fitted along with a pressure interlock. A low water level sensor, to guard against boil-dry conditions and a safety blow down valve afford further protection.
Epoxy coated panels and frame members are treated with the unique Biocote® anti-bacterial agent, which is effective against all bacteria and fungi including MRSA.
