Touchclave-Lab Rectangular Autoclave

Touchclave-Lab ‘F’ Series Rectangular Autoclave

Designed with a rectangular chamber and vertical sliding door, Touchclave-F models offer maximum loading efficiency and a high level of standard features at a more affordable price.

Touchclave-F models can be installed where mains water and drainage may not be readily available. Offering a wide range of capacities and operated via LTE’s 7″ touchscreen interface, Touchclave-Lab F Series offers unparalleled flexibility, optimum performance and value.

The Touchclave-F uses submerged heaters within the chamber to generate steam and in-chamber sensor prevent the cycle from starting or continuing if there’s insufficient water in the chamber. Water levels can be topped up, and drained, either manually or automatically.

Our Touchclave-F offers custom safety features including a safety microswitch fitted to the door which only allows the sterlizer cycle to star if the door is properly closed and locked. Additional safety features ensure the door cannot be opened until the chamber has reached atmospheric pressure and temperature.
