The RSC 350 laboratory autoclave from specialist autoclave manufacturer Priorclave is proving to be the ideal choice for laboratories in the food and drink, dairy, pharmaceutical, agriculture, education, healthcare and research sectors looking to achieve high-throughput sterilising procedures, or have a requirement to process large, bulky items.
The popularity of the front-loading autoclave is driven by a design that offers a large sterilising chamber, yet requires a relatively small footprint and is by far one of the easiest to install since it is castor mounted for easy positioning and will pass through a standard-sized door.
With a 350l capacity chamber, the RCS 350 laboratory autoclave is the perfect choice where tall, small and bulky items need to be sterilised since the rectangular chamber will accommodate many differing media types and sizes side-by-side in a single process. This can often improve the daily throughput of a busy laboratory.
All steam sterilising process parameters are easily programmed through the advanced Tactrol® 2 micro-processor control system, allowing for adjustment of temperature and time for simple cycles, to fully featured multi-programme operation. This powerful controller provides unrivalled flexibility, monitoring and management of the process cycle, and will guide operators through the simple set-up procedures ensuring laboratories optimise the autoclave performance in relation to the media being processed, thus helping to reduce running costs.
Priorclave is a technical innovator in autoclave design, which is reflected in the RCS 350 autoclave with features such as lower loading heights, simpler set-up procedures and safer door opening mechanisms. The chamber door on the RCS 350 has a patented two hand-wheel door closure system. The lower hand-wheel on the chamber door is fitted with thermal and pressure locks to prevent opening at load temperatures above 80°C and pressures above 0.2 bar, thus averting potential accidents through discharge of hot, high-pressurised steam.
The RSC 350 can be supplied by Priorclave with a choice of steam generation – electrical or direct steam heated; alternatively the laboratory autoclaves can be fitted with an in-house steam generator, which is ideal when continuous sterilising applications will take place.
As standard, the front loading laboratory autoclaves are fitted with an automatic water-fill; however, as a dedicated autoclave manufacturer Priorclave is able to incorporate a number of options into the standard steriliser framework of these high capacity sterilisers such as water cooling jackets, a pre-cycle vacuum, in which multiple vacuum stages are programmed with interspersed heating to achieve greater steam penetration of difficult media, and post-cycle drying.
The RSC 350 autoclave also features Biomaster protection, a tough, special epoxy finish that is proven to reduce bacterial growth by up to 99.99% and is highly effective against MRSA, E-coli, Listeria, Legionella, Campylobacter, Salmonella, Pseudomonas and over 50 other species.
The purchase of a RSC 350 autoclave means buying into British designed and manufactured laboratory autoclaves, which have a global presence and are supported by one of the very best pre-and post-sales support services; a dedicated team ensures customers maximise the efficiency of their Priorclave wherever it is installed.
