The Astell 120 - 153 Litre 'Duaclave' Autoclave Range

The 120 - 153 litre ‘Duaclave’ is the ideal autoclave range where laboratory floor space is at a premium. The Duaclave features dual chambers, one directly above the other ranging in sets of 120ltr or 153ltr capacities. Combining two units stacked within one frame, the two chambers operate completely independently.

The space-efficient Duaclave design is available in two chamber sizes, with each of the chambers capable of being operated independently.

  • Dual chamber autoclaves are manufactured with heaters in the base of the chamber
  • Two independent chambers are mounted one above the other in a specially designed frame.
  • Water is added directly into each chamber of the autoclave by the user
  • Each colour touchscreen advises when the water is at the correct level and manages the cycle from start to finish
  • At the end of each cycle the user is prompted by the touchscreen display to top up the water level to the correct point before starting another sterilization cycle

Astell can custom build the Duaclave range to your specifications.
