Benchtop laboratory autoclaves with prevacuums and drying

The AHS-B Series benchtop autoclaves have advanced features to meet all the sterilization needs of industrial, educational, medical and research laboratories to increase productivity and process all types of loads.

They are specially optimized for processing loads that require a higher steam penetration capacity to be properly sterilized such as porous solids, packaged loads, objects with cavities, items with complex geometries as well as liquids.

Thanks to their outstanding versatility in sterilizing all types of loads, the integrated independent steam generator, touchscreen display, separate clean water tank, initial prevacuum pulses, final vacuum drying, and direct water discharge, these autoclaves excel in performing everything from the simplest to the most demanding applications.

Fast sterilizations with deep steam penetration

Fast sterilizations with deep steam penetration

Achieve fast cycle times with instant steam production from the built-in steam generator. The pre-vacuum phase, featuring multiple vacuum pulses, thoroughly removes air pockets, ensuring effective sterilization of all types of loads.

Thoroughly dries the load with 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, ensuring safe processing of porous solids and packaged objects. There is no need to dry the load in an external oven.

A. Prevacuum phase
In the prevacuum phase, the cold air in the chamber is mechanically purged through multiple vacuum pulses. At the same time, the steam generator is activated, injecting saturated steam into the chamber. This process removes non-condensable gases from inside the chamber, eradicating the presence of cold air pockets and facilitating steam access to any surface of the load.
B. Heating phase
In this phase, the steam generator continues to inject saturated steam into the chamber until the sterilization temperature is reached.
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. Antibiotics, pH correctors or thermolabile ingredients can be dispensed at any time using the external dispensing ports.
D. Vacuum drying phase
In programs for solid loads, after the sterilization phase is completed, the vacuum pump and heating jacket are simultaneously activated to expel all moisture and completely dry the load through the use of multiple vacuum pulses. However, in programs for liquid loads, this phase is not carried out.
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.
