    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 BSL-3 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.

    sterile autoclave steam

    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 hot water in the chamber nor the separate steam generator need be cooled
    • After cooling, steam is immediately available for the next sterilization run.
     

    Pressure-safe up to 5 bar/150 °C

    The Systec biosafety autoclaves are 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 BSL3 series pass through autoclaves.

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

    Biosafety Level 3 autoclave chamber
     

    Biosafety Level 3 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 biosafety level 3 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.

     

    Controls – new generation

    The Systec biosafety double door autoclave units have “comprehensive intelligence”: Pressure is controlled via an electronic pressure transducer. Additionally, there is a flexible temperature sensor in the sterilization chamber or in a reference vessel (for liquids) and another sensor at the coldest part of the chamber, the condensate outlet. The touch screen, specially developed for our laboratory autoclave, controls all relevant functions such as steam pressure, temperature and sterilization time as well as optional rapid cooling, pre / post-vacuum and drying.

    Menu-presented instructions in easy to read text form. An advanced touch screen with acoustic confirmation signal. Ergonomically located in a logical and easy to operate position.

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.

    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 high capacity 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 generator

    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.
     

    Pressure-safe up to 5 bar/150 °C

    The Systec H-Series high capcity 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 H-series horizontal floor standing autoclave units.

    Systec H-Series high capcity autoclaves are equipped direct from the factory for sterilization temperatures up to 140 °C and 4 bar of pressure.

    high capacity 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 large capacity 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 HX-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.

     

    Controls – new generation

    The Systec high capacity autoclaves have a “comprehensive intelligence”: Pressure is controlled via an electronic pressure transducer. Additionally, there is a flexible temperature sensor in the sterilization chamber or in a reference vessel (for liquids) and another sensor at the coldest part of the chamber, the condensate outlet. The microprocessor, specially developed for our laboratory autoclave, controls all relevant functions such as steam pressure, temperature and sterilization time as well as optional rapid cooling, pre / post-vacuum and drying.

    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 vertical 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.

    Systec autoclave steam

    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.
     

    Pressure-safe up to 5 bar/150 °C

    The Systec V-Series vertical 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 V-series floor standing autoclave units.

    Systec vertical autoclaves are equipped direct from the factory for sterilization temperatures up to 140 °C and 4 bar of pressure.

    Systec V 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 vertical 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 V-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.

     

    Controls – new generation

    The Systec floor standing autoclave units have “comprehensive intelligence”: Pressure is controlled via an electronic pressure transducer. Additionally, there is a flexible temperature sensor in the sterilization chamber or in a reference vessel (for liquids) and another sensor at the coldest part of the chamber, the condensate outlet. The microprocessor, specially developed for our laboratory autoclave, controls all relevant functions such as steam pressure, temperature and sterilization time as well as optional rapid cooling, pre / post-vacuum and drying.

    Menu-presented instructions in easy to read text form. Membrane keyboard with acoustic confirmation signal. Ergonomically located in a logical and easy to operate position.

    Cooling options to fit your laboratory needs.

    • Level 1 Cooling
    • Level 2 Cooling
    • Level 3 Cooling

    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.

    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.

    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.
