Vertical Floor-standing Laboratory Autoclaves with drying

AE-DRY Series
The AE-DRY floor standing automatic vertical autoclaves with top loading access deliver great performance for general labware sterilization in many industries, educational and medical facilities and research institutes with the aim of increasing the productivity of the laboratory

The AE-DRY autoclaves are intended for the sterilization of a wide range of solid materials such as unwrapped and wrapped items, small porous objects and hollow ware type B (slightly deep and broad cavities), glass, plastic, metallic objects and waste bags. The drying feature and the automatic water control level reduce operator time dedicated to the autoclave leading to facilitate the sterilization procedures in the general laboratory.

  • Open lid sensor.
  • Water level detector in the sterilization chamber.
  • Water level detector (min./max.) in the water tank.


Special models

  • The equipments with increased power allow to reduce the total sterilization cycle time by shortening the heating phase particularly in autoclaves with a high workload.
