What types of Healthcare & Pathology autoclaves do we provide?

We can provide outstanding solutions to all facilities, including a diverse range of medical autoclaves.

In partnership with Steelco, we provide an array of small, medium and large capacity steam sterilisers for use in CSSD and decontamination services units, ranging from compact 94-litre capacity autoclaves to large capacity steam disinfection units with capacities of 3806-litres. In 2020 Sychem was awarded the NHS framework for Pathology and Point of Care Testing, Associated Equipment, Instruments, Consumables, Accessories, and Managed Services. Therefore, we are providing pathology laboratories with a range of decontamination equipment.

Customer needs drive all our solutions, and we’re here to support you every step of the way. Steelco sterilisers offer best-in-class solutions for reducing energy and water consumption. All autoclaves are flexible and can be configured to single or double doors for pass-through installation. In addition, they 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 Healthcare & Pathology autoclave?

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


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 94-litres to 3806-litres.

DIN Trays

Decide how many DIN trays you wish to load per cycle based on your daily throughout need.

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?
