What types of laboratory autoclaves do we provide?

We can provide outstanding solutions to all facilities

At Sychem, all solutions are driven by customer needs, and we’re here to support you every step of the way. We can provide an array of small, medium and large capacity steam sterilisers for use in laboratories, ranging from compact 110-litre capacity autoclaves to large bulk capacity 9070-litre autoclaves.

Together with our partner Steelco, we listen to our customers’ feedback, which has enabled us to provide a comprehensive range of solutions for improving the efficiency and working environment for staff. All laboratory autoclaves are flexible and can be configured to single or double doors for pass-through installation. As well as this, doors can be configured to either sliding or hinged, with the technical area left or right-aligned. In addition, all autoclaves are manufactured with an AISI 316L stainless steel chamber, enabling a high-efficiency heat transfer and full jacket system for heat distribution.

How to decide on your laboratory autoclave?

When choosing a Steelco autoclave, there is plenty of factors for you to consider.

Type of autoclave

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

What do you need to sterilise?

Think, are you using your autoclave for glassware, plastic ware, media preparation, liquids, or waste? This will have an impact on the features you require.

Steam requirements

Have a think about how you are going to generate the steam? Do you have steam already or will you need the autoclave to generate its own?
