The Astell 250 - 1,200 Litre Double Door SQUARE Autoclave Range

The 250 - 1,200 litre Double Door SQUARE Autoclave Range is ideal for high-containment type (BSL-3/4) facilities or where a specific area or 'clean room' are in operation, as the sterilized load can 'pass through' the autoclave to be removed in to this environment.

The Double Door SQUARE range is highly customisable and capable of sterilizing almost anything (additional options may be required) with a range of different chamber sizes available.

Depending on load and sterilization requirements the addition of a Heated Jacket, Vacuum facility or Cooling system may be required or recommended.
