What Medium and Large Capacity Autoclaves do we Provide?

We offer a comprehensive range of medium to large capacity autoclaves for healthcare facilities.

Our medium capacity range can process 4 STU up to 12 STU per cycle while our large-capacity range processes up to 18 STU per cycle.

All autoclave chambers are made of AISI 316L stainless steel and are entirely covered by a high-efficiency jacket to ensure fast heating and reduced cycle times. This ensures even heat distribution and reduces electricity consumption for heating and cooling.

Offering the best-in-class solutions for reducing energy and water consumption, our autoclaves are engineered to provide users with the lowest operating cost per load.

In 2020, Sychem was awarded with the NHS framework for Pathology and Point of Care Testing, Associated Equipment, Instruments, Consumables, Accessories, and Managed Services. This enables us to supply pathology laboratories with a large range of decontamination equipment.
