More Information

316L Stainless Steel Pressure Vessel
Constructed with a one-piece cylindrical steel pressure vessel, made from high grade 316L stainless steel making this the strongest pressure vessel, providing equal pressure around the whole chamber.
Anti-Bacterial Epoxy Powder Coating
Coated in anti-bacterial epoxy powder coating which is designed to combat destructive microbes and to protect against the growth and migration of bacteria.
8-Program Touchscreen Control System
8 cycles can be stored into the memory as standard, providing a selection of load-specific cycles or giving users the option to develop and edit their own cycle profiles.
Integral Steam Generator
A high performance stainless steel steam generator is fitted under the chamber which delivers steam quickly and effectively to the chamber and load, minimizing re-heat times between negative pulsing and speeding up cycle times.
Pre/Post vacuum system
Provides quicker and more efficient air removal at the start of the cycle, ensuring that steam will penetrate deep into the load and not be affected by trapped air pockets. Can also help speed up the cooling stage, as the vacuum can be used to help dissipate heat from the load.
Steam Jacket
The steam jacket keeps the chamber hot in between cycles, and assists during the drying stage by flashing-off residual water in or around the load.
Thermal Paper Printer
The thermal paper printer can be added to the autoclave for additional peace of mind, this will print out all cycle details and operational data as the program progresses.
Internal Data Archiving
The Touchclave R/PL is equipped with automatic electronic data archiving. This comprises of an internal data storage facility which allows up to 5000 cycles to be stored on a single flash-card.
Remote Data Archiving
A remote cycle data archiving facility via USB, ethernet or WIFI, can be added so that all cycle data, including any fault or alarm conditions, can be downloaded to a PC and permanently recorded. All archive data is 'checksum' protected.
