Benchtop laboratory autoclaves with drying

The AHS-DRY Series benchtop autoclaves meet the sterilization needs of laboratories in industrial, educational, medical and research facilities with the aim of boosting productivity and minimizing each sterilization cycle’s turnaround time.

Designed for sterilizing bagged solid loads, porous and hollow objects, glass, plastics, metal utensils, and laboratory waste bags. They can also process liquids and culture media.

The ability to handle various types of loads, combined with the final drying feature and high automation, enhances efficiency in using resources like water, energy, and time. This leads to a cost-effective way to manage the laboratory’s workload.

Autoclave drying function

Save time thanks to the final drying function

Thanks to its final drying function using a heating jacket and vacuum pump, the load will be completely dry at the end of the cycle, eliminating the need to dry the load in an external oven, thus gaining convenience and saving handling time.

Optimized sterilizations and higher degree of automation

Mechanical purge through a vacuum pump to remove air pockets and improve steam penetration. Specific programs for liquids. Includes a bacteriological filter and an independent water tank that can be equipped with an automatic filling kit for seamless operation.

A. Prevacuum phase
The cold air in the chamber is mechanically purged to the outside through a vacuum pulse, reducing the presence of non-condensable gases and facilitating steam penetration throughout the load.
B. Heating phase
After completing the first vacuum pulse, the heating elements heat up water to produce saturated steam, which expels the cold air outward until the sterilization temperature is reached in the chamber.
C. Sterilization phase
Upon reaching the sterilization temperature in the medium, the sterilization phase begins and the temperature is accurately sustained for the predefined duration.
D. Vacuum drying phase
In programs for solid loads, after the sterilization phase is completed, the vacuum pump and heating jacket are activated simultaneously to expel all moisture and completely dry the load through the use of multiple vacuum pulses. Conversely, in programs for liquid loads, this drying phase is not performed.
E. Cooling phase
After the load is fully dry, a natural cooling phase begins, ending once the temperature drops to a level that's safe for handling the load without burning oneself. Then, the door can be unlocked, and the load can be taken out. Optionally, the agar mode can be configured to maintain a constant temperature.
