Important information

As a key supplier to the NHS, PHE and other critical life science sectors during the Covid-19 crisis, LTE is committed to ensuring the uninterrupted supply of its sterilization, decontamination, as well as laboratory thermal equipment including incubators, ovens and drying and solution/blanket warming cabinets.

Our UK production site remains fully operational and can offer some products from stock or on shortened lead times. Our Service Centre is continuing to operate a UK-wide team of engineers to carry out a full range of maintenance, service and testing to UKAS and HTM guidelines on both LTE and non-LTE brands of laboratory autoclaves, porous load sterilizers and washer-disinfectors.

Touchclave-Lab ‘K’ Series Rectangular Autoclaves

INTEGRAL STEAM GENERATOR/DIRECT STEAM

The Touchclave-Lab ‘K’ Series is LTE’s top-line range of mid-sized rectangular chambered general purpose autoclaves, available in 5 sizes from 150 – 450 litre capacities, with pass-through versions also available from 300 litres and above.

A wide range of features are included in the ‘K’ Series as standard to enhance machine performance and cycle efficiency. These include:

  • 8-program touchscreen control system
  • Internal data archiving
  • Water jacketed chamber for exceptional cooling efficiency
  • Water conservation system and exhaust condensate
  • Load-sensed process timer
  • Pneumatically operated door lock and sealing system
  • Integral silent air compressor

In addition, a wide range of options are available for the Touchclave-Lab range to suit individual customer requirements.

‘K’ Series models are designed to operate using either a steam generator situated beneath the chamber, or via the customers own direct steam supply. This arrangement maximises the usable chamber volume and provides a clean, unencumbered chamber, free from heaters and water.

Unless the door is properly closed and locked, the cycle cannot be started. At the end of the cycle, the door will not be released until both temperature and pressure have reached safe pre-set levels.

All models incorporate an easy-glide vertical sliding door and have been designed to have a small footprint. A power door can be fitted as an option.
