    Diameter: 1000mm

    State-of-the-art engineering
    Systec autoclaves ensuring a high quality of laboratory sterilization processes.

    Available with two chamber diameter
    Available with two chamber diameter: 740 mm and 1000 mm. 1000 mm diameter chamber provides the usable chamber dimension of a 6 x 6 square chamber autoclave.

    All-round quality
    The pressure vessel is made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel 1.4571 (V4A) AISI 316 and is 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 be used under clean-room conditions.

    Dual sensors as standard
    Temperature and pressure are controlled via an electronic pressure sensor, as well as a flexible temperature sensor in the chamber or in a reference vessel (with liquids). Systec HX autoclaves also have an additional temperature sensor in the floor drain.

    Triple safety aspects:

    • One door only can be opened at a time. If one door is open, the other is automatically locked.
    • If the autoclave is switched off or of no current is available (e.g. power failure), booth doors remains locked.
    • If the door at the non-sterile side is opened, a sterilization program hast to be performed before the door at the sterile side can be opened.

    For use under the most stringent clean room and safety conditions:

    • For biological safety laboratories. Fitting as a sterilization an pass-through lock for protecting the external environment.
    • For clean rooms in laboratories and production facilities as a sterilization and pass-through lock separating sterile and non-sterile areas.

    Systec autoclaves are fitted with the following connections at the rear:

    = Standard = Optional

     


    All according to norms and regulations
    Systec H-Series autoclaves are designed 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. Available for Systec H-Series autoclaves from 65 to 650 liters.

  • Steam generation
    Steam generation by steam generator
    Steam generator

    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.
    • 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.

    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.

  • Operation
    Autoclaves touch-screen
    Touch-screen

    Operation by Touch-Screen technology
    The Operation of the autoclave is easy and rapid via a large (5.7 inch), highly visible touch screen interface. The process data can be displayed numerically or graphically. 7 programs are pre-defined but can be expanded (up to 100) as required by the user.

    To initiate a new program, the user is guided through the process by menu dialog. Every new program is automatically allocated a permanent, unalterable name and can also be given an individual designation by the user.

    Pre-defined programs
    1 Solids
    2 Waste bags
    3 Liquid waste
    4 Liquids
    5 Cleaning
    6 Vacuum test*
    7 Bowie-Dick test*

    These can be expanded to 100 sterilization programs.
    * Only in combination with a vacuum device.

    Automatic door-opening
    Door open

    Automatic door-opening
    The autoclave door functions automatically – either by pressing a button or automatically at the end of a program. Residual heat is used to dry the items being sterilized during the final short phase in the autoclave. Automatic door-opening is restricted to an angle of approx. 15°; this avoids possible contamination from the outside. For removing the sterilized items, the door can be completely opened manually.

    Select the right process for every sterilization application 
    Several options are available that are necessary to obtain correct and validatable results and rapid cooling times. The Options depend on the items to be sterilized. The autoclave can be optimally configured for the necessary tasks.

    The table below provides help in establishing the desired configuration. Please obtain additional advice from our experts.

  • Sterilization of liquids Sterilization of liquids
    Sterilization heating up
    Heating up

    Heating up
    The actual sterilization time of e.g. 15 minutes at 121 °C is only a fraction of the total time involved for an autoclave procedure. Especially in the case of sterilizing liquids, the heating up and cooling down phases are considerably longer.

    Up to 50 % shorter heat-up times as standard
    Due to the combined temperature and pressure regulation, the chamber pressure is increased during the heat-up phase. The result: more rapid temperature equilibrium in the liquids and a shorter heat-up time.


    Conventional cooling vs. Rapid cooling
    Conventional cooling vs. Rapid cooling

    Cooling
    The cooling process for liquids is also very slow; this is because, without active rapid cooling, the heat can only be reduced to below 100°C by dissipating the heat via the chamber insulation by radiation (see diagram: conventional cooling).
    New system- and process technology make it possible to substantially reduce the overall time required for the sterilization process (see diagram: rapid cooling).

    Systec offers many functions for its autoclaves guaranteeing safe liquid sterilization processes at higher productivity.

    In addition to conventional cooling by regulated steam exhaust down to 100 °C and subsequent very slow self-cooling down to 80 °C, optional cooling systems for rapid cooling are available.

    • Cooling with ambient air ventilation
    • Mantle cooling with cooling water
    • Mantle cooling with cooling water and support pressure
    • Radial ventilator for air circulation and accelerated heat removal from the chamber
    • Ultracooler
    • Spray cooling with recirculated and recooled sterile water and support pressure

    Mantle cooling with cooling water and support pressure
    Mantle cooling with cooling water and support pressure

    Mantle cooling with cooling water and support pressure

    During the entire sterilization process a flexible PT-100 temperature sensor monitors the temperature in a reference vessel. It is guaranteed that the sterilization period begins only once the sterilization temperature has been attained in the liquid to be sterilized.

    The cooling temperature is also constantly monitored. In accordance with relevant standards to prevent delayed boiling, the lid can only be opened once the temperature of the liquid has been reduced to at least 80 °C.

    The use of support pressure in the form of sterile-filtered compressed air during the cooling phase reliably prevents the culture medium from boiling.

    Advantages:

    • No loss of liquid due to boiling of the culture media
    • Improved productivity from reduced cycle times and the full utilization of the filling volume in each bottle
    • Prevention of delayed and over-boiling
    • Prevention of the risk of bottles bursting during or after sterilization
    • Prevention of re-contamination by the use of hermetically sealed bottles during sterilization
    • Reduction of cooling time by up to 60 %

    Exhaust air filtration with condensate inactivation
    For the sterilization of hazardous biological substances, Systec autoclaves can be fitted with an optional air exhaust filtration system. The autoclavable sterile filter, consisting of a filter cartridge with PTFE membrane of pore size 0.2 μm, is installed in a presure-proof housing and can be quickly changed at any time. The filter is also automatically sterilized inline during the sterilization process, monitored by the PT-100 temperature sensor. The condensate is retained inside the pressure vessel during the heating and sterilization phases and thus also sterilized. Through air exhaust filtration and condensate inactivation, it is ensured that no microorganisms can escape before end of the sterilization phase.
