Autoclaves, LABOKLAV

Supplier: SHP
A completely new concept allows the installation of the unit as either front or top loader. Deciding on horizontal or vertical is no longer the question with SHP autoclaves. No matter if installed horizontally or vertically, the units remain the same. Even at a later stage the unit can be changed from vertical to horizontal installation or vice versa without the need for big technical changes (contact VWR for details). When set up as horizontal units they are even stackable. Stainless steel 316L chamber and housing.

  • Automatic feed water pump
  • Fully automatic closing system and thermal locking device to protect the operator
  • Reference sensor as standard which measures the temperature inside the bottles
  • Microprocessor control with 22 programs that can be adjusted by the operator to optimise the process (code protected)
  • RS485 interface
  • Three colours available: Light grey/blue, light grey/red, light grey/green (please indicate the desired colour when ordering)
  • All models are equipped with a cooling system to ensure steam is cooled prior to evacuation, thus ensuring drain protection

The newly developed integrated steam generator separates the heating elements from the water; the result is a much longer life span of heating elements. Low in energy consumption due to optimised size of steam generator in relation to chamber volume.

Units with cooling or vacuum options are supplied with full double jacket made from the same material as the chamber. During the cooling cycle, deionised water is circulated around the double jacket to ensure a fast and reliable cooling of sensitive media. There is no consumption of cooling deionised water, it returns to the storage tank which has an integral heat exchanger. During the drying cycle the jacket is filled with steam to support the drying of the vacuum unit.

The products we supply are intended for use in accordance with the documentation and manufacturer specifications under the user’s sole responsibility. 

Products supplied by VWR cannot be used as active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) in human or veterinary medicine because, as a distributor, VWR does not fulfil the requirements laid down in the guidelines for GMP medicinal products for human and veterinary use.

In no event shall VWR INTERNATIONAL be liable if a customer uses a product that does not fit with the intended application. 

It is the customer's responsibility to comply with all applicable health, safety and other regulations and to take appropriate steps in relation to the storage, handling, sale and use of the products.
