How to decide on your life science washer disinfector?

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

What are you washing?

What type of product are you washing? Cage only, cages and bottles, cages, bottles and IVC plenums, aquatic tanks etc.


Do you require a small, medium or large-capacity bottle, cage and rack washer, or a combination—if you are unsure, speak to our team.

Throughput requirements

Decide the chamber volume/dimensions you require based on your throughout.

Automated loading/unloading systems

Think about whether your facility would benefit from automated solutions in order to maximise efficiency and reduce the chances of workplace related injuries.


The final stage of the process is to decide on the most appropriate accessories to assist in the processing of equipment. We can reduce pit sizes down to 100mm or even offer no pit installation on the Steelco AC series.


We can tailor to your needs. Whether it is extras you need or cost-effective alternatives- we have the solution for you.
