The Astell 120 - 344 Liter Sliding Front Autoclave Range

The 120 - 344 liter sliding front circular chamber autoclave is available in five chamber sizes. Loading access is through a sliding door meaning the unit requires less operational floor space than a hinged door unit. The door can be specified with manual operation, or automatic when combined with the air compressor option or an external air supply. The circular section sliding door range of autoclaves has a broad selection of options, many of which are unavailable on smaller capacity ranges, meaning its possible to sterilize a variety of loads.

Astell's additional options include Integral Steam Generators, Heated Jackets, Simple/Advanced Vacuum and a choice of Cooling options to name but a few. Learn more about each of these by viewing the pages below or clicking the View Product Options button:
