Large Capacity Autoclave

In the realm of industrial sterilization, having a reliable, large capacity autoclave isn’t just an option—it’s a necessity. SH Scientific understands this, which is why we’ve engineered autoclaves with up to 1,200 liters of chamber capacity, designed for superior performance and ease of use. Whether you’re in research, quality assurance, or education, our autoclaves provide the solutions you need without the oversized footprint.

Why Choose SH Scientific’s Large Autoclaves?

  • Efficiency Redefined: Our autoclaves come with fully automated operations. Simply set your parameters and let the machine do the rest. With features like a digital P.I.D controller, you achieve exceptional temperature accuracy, reducing the need for constant supervision and minimizing energy waste.
  • Safety First: Double housing with stainless steel and aluminum frame ensures user safety, alongside an overpressure protection valve. Our manual steam release control also prevents sudden pressure drops, safeguarding your materials.
  • Ease of Use: Loading and unloading are made effortless with our large 20-inch doors. Additionally, the integrated cooling fan accelerates natural cooling for busy settings where time is of the essence.
  • Cost-Effective Operations: No external water supply is needed, and our easy water drain system simplifies maintenance. With the capability to handle tall bioreactors, flasks, and fermentors efficiently, you no longer need to operate under capacity, saving on operational costs.

Our large capacity autoclave lines are highly esteemed by numerous laboratories, primarily for their substantial height rather than their volume. Indeed, the concept of a “large autoclave” encompasses more than just capacity. These units are optimally designed for sterilizing hundreds of test tubes, flasks, and other apparatus in a single operation, making them an ideal solution for efficient sterilization processes.
