Autoclaves that improve lab efficiency
The RSC 350 autoclave from Priorclave is proving the ideal choice for
those laboratories in the food & drink, pharma, agriculture,
education and healthcare sectors looking to achieve high-throughput
According to Priorclave, the popularity of its front-loading
autoclave is driven by a design that offers a large sterilising chamber
yet requires a relatively small footprint and is by far one of the
easiest to install since it is castor mounted for easy positioning and
pass through a standard door.
With a 350 litre capacity chamber,
the RCS 350 laboratory autoclave is the perfect choice where tall, small
and bulky items need to be sterilised as its rectangular chamber will
accommodate many differing media types and sizes side-by-side in a
All steam sterilising process parameters are
easily programmed through the advanced Tactrol 2 microprocessor control
system, allowing for adjustment of temperature and time for simple
cycles to fully featured multi-programme operation.
controller allows unrivalled flexibility, monitoring and management of
the process cycle which guides operators through simple set-up
procedures ensuring laboratories optimise the autoclave performance in
relation to the media being processed.
The chamber door on the RCS
350 has a two hand-wheel door closure system, the lower hand-wheel on
the chamber door is fitted with thermal and pressure locks to prevent
opening at load temperatures above 80°C and pressures above 0.2 bar,
thus averting potential accidents through discharge of hot,
The RSC 350 can be supplied by Priorclave
with a choice of steam generation – electrical or direct steam heated;
alternatively they can be fitted with an in-house steam generator ideal
where continuous sterilising applications take place.
As standard, the RSC 350 front loading laboratory autoclave is fitted with an automatic water-fill.
as a dedicated autoclave manufacturer, Priorclave is able to
incorporate a number of options into the standard steriliser framework
of these high capacity sterilisers such as water cooling jackets,
pre-cycle vacuum in which multiple vacuum stages are programmed with
interspersed heating to achieve greater steam penetration of difficult
media as well as post cycle drying.
The RSC 350 autoclave also
benefits from Biomaster protection, a tough special epoxy finish proven
to reduce bacterial growth by up to 99.99% and is highly effective
against MRSA, E coli, Listeria, Legionella, Campylobacter, Salmonella,
Pseudomonas and over 50 other species.
