Innovative automatic safety door lock

Easy and safe. When the autoclave lid is closed, the lid is automatically locked by a circumferential ring system. A special lip seal made of heat resistant silicone provides reliable sealing. As steam pressure builds within the sterilizer, the seal becomes tighter.

The lid also opens easily – either at the push of a button or automatically at the end of a sterilization cycle.

The door-locking system on this double door autoclave, is temperature dependent and adheres to national and international safety standards. The door remains locked as long as there is excess pressure in the chamber. The lid, like other parts of the pressure vessel and housing, is made of stainless steel. The modern design faceplate, which also contains the control panel, display and part of the control technology, is made of heat resistant and insulated plastic. There is no risk of the autoclave operator coming into contact with hot components.

autoclave steam generation

Steam generation

A steam generator is incorporated in the sterilizer housing providing substantial benefits:

  • No heating elements and no reservoir for dirty water in the chamber
  • With stand-by pre-heating option, only 10 min. heating time to 121° C with an empty chamber
  • Improved removal of air from the empty chamber via pulsed heating (rapid attainment of optimal steam atmosphere, even without a vacuum)
  • Accuracy better than ± 0.5° C with empty chamber
  • Quicker cooling as neither the hot water in the chamber nor the separate steam generator need to be cooled
  • After cooling, steam is immediately available for the next sterilization run.
Condensation of steam instead of removal

Exhaust steam is condensed automatically via a PT-100-regulated cooling system. This prevents odors and protects waste water piping that may be made of plastic.

 

Pressure-safe up to 5 bar/150 °C

The Systec D2D-Series double door autoclave units are the first of its kind to be designed for higher pressures and temperatures. The standard pressure sterilizer chamber is designed for 5 bar/150 °C. If the expanded pressure and temperature model is selected as an option, all control and safety components are adapted to the higher temperature and pressure. This option may be retrofitted to existing pass through autoclave units.

Systec pass through autoclave units are equipped direct from the factory for sterilization temperatures up to 140 °C and 4 bar of pressure.

D2D Series autoclave quality

Quality materials quality manufacturing

The pressure vessel is made of corrosion-resistant electro-polished stainless steel 1.4571 (V4A) AISI 316 Ti and therefore very easy to clean. The double door autoclave framework and housing are also made of stainless steel. The highly efficient, high-quality Hanno-Tect insulation material releases no particles and therefore the Systec D2D-Series sterilizer is ideal for use in clean room environments

Exhaust steam is condensed automatically via a PT 100-regulated cooling system. This prevents odors and protects waste water piping.

 

Operation by Touch-Screen technology

Operation is easy and rapid via a large (5.7 inch) touch screen interface for direct reading. This innovation oers additional options and increased flexibility when working with the autoclave. For example, process data can be displayed numerically or graphically. 7 programs are pre-defined but can be expanded (up to 100) as required by the user. To create a new program, the user is guided through the process by a menu dialog. Every new program is automatically assigned to a permanent, unalterable name and can also be given an individual designation by the user. All process parameters can be individually altered.

Cooling Coils

Cooling coils with support pressure provide a coil wrapped around the outside of the sterilization vessel. During the cooling phase, cool water circulates through the coils, reducing cool down time. Support pressure prevents liquids from boiling over during the cooling process, eliminating evaporative loss of sterilized liquids.

Cooling time 40mins
Autoclave Cooling Coils

Radial Ventilator

Radial ventilator for air circulation and accelerated heat removal from the sterilizer chamber. Combined with cooling coils and support pressure, the radial ventilator creates a more rapid exchange of heat from the chamber by utilizing an internal fan to circulate air.

Cooling time 20mins
Autoclave Radial Ventilator

UltraCool

UltraCool is an additional heat exchanger behind the radial ventilator. This special ridged coil provides a substantial increase in surface area for fast and efficient removal of heat during the cooling process. UltraCool can reduce cooling time by 90% compared to exhaust cooling and 50% compared to cooling coils with just the radial ventilator alone.

EZ-Water System

The EZ-Water system is designed to provide DI water for Systec Autoclaves and MediaPreps. The system is made up of 2 parts: the carbon filter 2000L (needed in city water applications to remove the chlorine and protect the resin bed; not needed for well water) and the resin bed, that which makes the water pure. The resin bed is available in a 2000L and 4000L version. All EZ-Water systems have an indicator light that goes from green to red when the tank needs to be exchanged soon.

Design

Available with four chamber diameter

Available with four chamber diameter: 400 mm, 500 mm, 740 mm and 1000 mm diameter.

All-round quality

The pressure vessel is made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel 316L (1.4404) and is easy to clean. An approved safety valve for excess pressure is included. The autoclave support framework and housing are also made of stainless steel. The highly efficient, high-quality melamine foam insulation material releases no particles; Systec autoclaves can be used under clean-room conditions.

    The pressure vessel of the Systec H-Series is designed for operations at 150 °C and 5 bar absolute pressure. Optional temperature and pressure range extension accessories adapt all control and safety components to the higher temperature and pressure. This option can be retrofitted.

    Steam Generation

    Steam generation by steam generator

    A separate steam generator is incorporated in the housing.

    This has numerous advantages:
    • No heating elements and no reservoir for dirty water in the chamber
    • In conjunction with the stand-by pre-heating function, only 10 min. heating time to 121 °C with an empty chamber is required
    • Improved air removal by suppressing the air to the bottom with its natural gravitation
    • Quicker cooling as neither the hot water in the chamber nor the separate steam generator need to be cooled
    • After cooling, steam is immediately available for the next sterilization run
    Condensation of steam instead of removal

    Exhaust steam is condensed automatically via a PT-100-regulated cooling system. This prevents odors and protects waste water piping that may be made of plastic.

    Operation by Touch-Screen technology

    Operation is easy and rapid via a large (5.7 inch) touch screen interface for direct reading. This innovation oers additional options and increased flexibility when working with the autoclave.

    Safety

    Automatic door-opening system

    Easy but safe – on closing, the door is automatically locked by a circumferential ring system. A special lip seal made of heatresistant silicone provides reliable tightness; the more the steam pressure increases, the tighter the seal becomes – without the need for additional compressed air or other media! The door-locking system is temperature-controlled according to the safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control, and laboratory use (DIN EN (IEC) 61010-2-040). The door remains locked as long as there is excess pressure in the chamber. The door and other parts of the pressure vessel and housing are made of stainless steel. The attractively designed front cover, which also incorporates the control panel, display and parts of the control processing system, is made of heatresistant, insulating plastic. There is no risk for the operator of coming into contact with hot components.


    The autoclave door-opening works autonomously – either by pressing a button or automatically at the end of a program. A simple system but most useful in practice. Residual steam is exhausted automatically without intermission. Residual heat is used to dry the items being sterilized during a final short phase in the autoclave. Automatic door-opening is restricted to an angle of approx. 15°; this avoids possible contamination from the outside. This is especially useful when sterilized items have to remain in the autoclave for cooling and drying. Subsequently, for removing the sterilized items, the door can be completely opened manually.
