Vertical, floor-standing autoclaves Systec V-Series

We have created a new class of autoclave with new dimensions: as before, compact and space-saving but with increased chamber height. Result: optimal loading capacity with most standard media bottles and Erlenmeyer fl asks. Up to 50 % more loading capacity.

State-of-the-art engineering

All Systec autoclaves have been newly developed and designed and represent state-of-the-art engineering. All mechanical and electronic components guarantee enhanced sterilization processes, hence enabling the lab to fulfill all appropriate requirements for today and for the future.

All-round quality

The pressure vessel is made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel 1.4571 (V4A) AISI 316 Ti and is thus easy to clean. An approved safety valve for excess pressure is included. The autoclave support framework and housing are also made of stainless steel. The highly efficient, high-quality Hanno-Tect insulation material releases no particles; Systec autoclaves can thus be used under clean-room conditions. Systec autoclaves are fitted with the following connections at the rear:

  • VX VE VB
  • Demineralized water inlet for steam generation
  • Compressed air
  • Cooling water
  • Common outlet
  • RS-232 / RS-485 interfaces
  • Flexible power cord with CEE plug
= Standard
= Optional

All according to norms and regulations

Equipped for the future! Systec V-Series are the first to be equipped for higher temperatures and pressures. The pressure vessel is designed for operations at 150 °C and 5 bar. Optional temperature and pressure range extension accessories adapt all control and safety components to the higher temperature and pressure. This option can be retrofitted.

Exception: Extension of temperature and pressure to 150 °C / 5 bar is not available for V-40 or V-55 systems.

Systec autoclaves are equipped as standard for sterilization temperatures up to 140 °C and a steam pressure of 4 bar.

Systec autoclaves comply with the following standards:

Pressure vessel:

  • 97 / 23 / EG Pressurized Vessel Guideline.
  • ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code, Section VIII, Division 1.
  • China Stamp.

Other guidelines:

  • 2006 / 95 / EG Low Voltage Directive.
  • 2004 /108 / EG on Electromagnetic Compatibility.
  • 2006 / 42 / EG Machinery Directive.

All autoclaves are CE-certificated.

Steam generation

Steam generation by steam generator


A separate steam generator is incorporated in the housing.

This has numerous advantages:

  • No heating elements and no reservoir for dirty water in the chamber.
  • In conjunction with the stand-by pre-heating function, only 10 min. heating time to 121 °C with an empty chamber is required.
  • Improved air removal by suppressing the air to the bottom with its natural gravitation.
  • Accuracy better than ± 0.3 K with empty chamber.
  • Quicker cooling as neither the hot water in the chamber nor the separate steam generator need to be cooled.
  • After cooling, steam is immediately available for the next sterilization run.

Conventional steam generation


In this system, powerful heating elements are integrated directly at the bottom of the sterilization chamber. As required, water can be fed in manually or in models VE, demineralized water can be fed in automatically using the DI-Water connection.

Condensation of steam instead of removal


Exhaust steam is condensed automatically via a PT-100-regulated cooling system. This prevents odors and protects waste water piping that may be made of plastic.
