BSL3 and BSL4 Autoclaves - 2

In today’s society the need for safe bio-containment systems is increasingly important. This is especially true in the sterilization process where standard autoclaves cannot deal with the threat posed by harmful pathogens and other contaminated materials that are emitted from BSL3/4 laboratories. Tuttnauer is at the front lines, continuously creating new standards in the field of bio-containment. With years of experience in the market, Tuttnauer produces reliable and safe bio-containment.

Autoclave Piping and Components Specifically designed for use with steam systems that demand the highest safety conditions. 316L grade stainless steel is used for the chamber, piping and fittings. The inner chamber walls have a mirror like polished finish (Ra < 0.4μm) to create a smooth surface. Chamber Drain Valve Area Diaphragm Valves The chamber drain valve area is the coldest spot in the chamber. Tuttnauer BSL autoclaves resolve this problem by applying steam directly to the chamber drain valve area. Separate diaphragm valves (optional) for steam to the jacket and chamber prevent...

Laboratory Line Prevacuum Air Sterilization All air that leaves the chamber prior to sterilization is treated as highly infectious and passes through a stringent biological decontamination system that renders the air sterile. Thermal Sterilization Prevacuum air leaves the chamber and makes contact with high temperature steam and is then passed through a high temperature heat exchanger which greatly increases the heat applied to the air making the air sterile and safe. The sterilized air is then cooled and any condensate is discharged to the drain. Sterilization by Filtration Double Filter...
