What Types of Laboratory Autoclaves do we Provide?

We provide a large range of laboratory autoclaves to meet the requirements of any facility.

Our portfolio includes small, medium and large-capacity Steelco steam sterilisers which range from compact 85 litre capacity autoclaves to bulk capacity 9070 litre autoclaves. We also provide a compact range of VS LD sterilisers which offer a freestanding, vertical loading design that maximises cleaning performance while minimising operating costs and use of space.

Each of our VS L laboratory autoclaves is highly versatile and can be configured with either single or double doors for pass-through installation. Additionally, customers can choose between sliding or hinged doors, with the technical area left or right-aligned.

All of our autoclaves are constructed with an AISI 316L stainless steel chamber which ensures optimal heat transfer and features a full jacket system for even heat distribution.

How to Decide on Your Laboratory Autoclave?

There are lots of factors to consider when choosing your Steelco VS L autoclave for laboratory use.

What type do you require?

Do you require a small, medium or large-capacity steam steriliser or even a combination? Chamber volumes range from 110 litres to 9070 litres. If you are unsure, speak to our expert team.

What do you need to sterilise?

Consider what it is you are using your laboratory autoclave for. Is it glassware, plastic ware, media preparation, liquids, or waste? This will have an impact on the features you require.

What are your steam requirements?

Have a think about how you are going to generate steam. Is it something you have already in your facility or will you need the autoclave to generate its own?
