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.

The Role Steam Jackets Play In Drying Autoclave & Sterilizer Loads

More customers are requiring that certain loads are totally dry at the end of the cycle.

Typical loads can be pipette tips, tubing, glassware, instruments and porous loads such as lab gowns and shoes. Vacuum alone (even using liquid ring pumps) will not achieve totally dry loads. The only way to dry loads effectively is by adding a steam jacket/heat source to the chamber. The heating effect of the steam jacket/heat source plus the high vacuum flashes off all residual moisture from the load, whilst minimising cycle times.
