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 benchtop 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.

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 D-Series benchtop 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 D- series benchtop autoclave units.

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

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 benchtop 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 D-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 D-Series benchtop 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.

Vacuum System

Required for Superdry option, but also allows for fractionated pre-vacuum. Useful for sterilization of waste bags, porous materials, hollow items and textiles.

Installed steam generator supplies heat to coils that surround sterilization vessel. Rapid surface drying occurs due to the heat and the sterilizer chamber being under a vacuum.

Air Exhaust Filtration

The exhaust air is filtered via an autoclavable sterile filter. Neither aerosoles nor microorganisms can escape before the sterilization process is complete. Filter cartridge with PTFE membrane, pore size 0.2 um.
