A benchtop autoclave has a variety of uses, being suitable for sterilizing laboratory glassware, petri dishes, media, unwrapped and wrapped instruments, plastic receptacles and containers and occasional discard loads.
In addition to laboratory use, it is not uncommon for benchtop autoclaves to be employed in other areas like scientific research, process manufacturing, veterinary and medical healthcare industries to name but a few.
Eco-Friendly benchtop autoclaves
All the Ecofill benchtop autoclaves require no plumbing whatsoever. Simply plus the unit into a power supply and fill the integral water reservoir. Once filled, this provides water for up to 15 cycles, and also acts as a collection vessel for condensate and the water that is automatically returned from the chamber at the end of each cycle – making Astell Benchtop Ecofill units one of the lowest water consumption autoclaves available.
Astell benchtop ’Ecofill’ units are one of the most energy efficient autoclaves available. The pressure vessel design ensures the absolute minimum amount of water is used during a sterilization cycle, which not only means comparably low power consumption, but also very quick heating and cooling.
The pressure vessel design ensures the absolute minimum amount of water is needed for every cycle, which not only means very low power consumption, but also very quick heating and cooling, reducing cycle times by up to 50% over similar models. This along with the Autofill water recirculation system ensures Astell benchtop/table top autoclaves are amongst the lowest power and water consuming sterilizers on the market.
