Outfitting Pilgrim’s Pride with a Robust Food Autoclave

Recently Priorclave outfitted Pilgrim’s Pride with a benchtop autoclave for one of its facilities in Pittsburg, Texas. The company, the largest chicken supplier in the US, has meat-quality testing at the cornerstone of its business. Their quality assurance department had previously relied on a medical-grade tabletop steriliser. They struggled to keep this unit up and running under the relatively heavy workload posed by the daily waste processing and media prep cycles.

By replacing this steriliser with a Priorclave 60L benchtop laboratory autoclave, Pilgrim’s Pride substantially improved uptime, even as they increased the size of their workloads. The benchtop laboratory autoclave proved to be an economical choice, able to provide the requisite steam temperature and high pressure levels without undue consumption of water or energy.

Reliable, Flexible Food Autoclaves

Every Priorclave autoclave in situ around the world has been designed and built in our own dedicated British manufacturing centre.  They are purpose designed to handle a variety of media – foodstuff, tools, samples, growth media, microorganisms, waste loads – raising it to a specific temperature and pressure for minutes, hours, days, even months.

But what truly distinguishes Priorclave is customer satisfaction. Priorclave customers consistently report 93% to 100% satisfaction with their purchase over the course of years–with that rating improving the longer they’ve owned the unit. In our most recent customer satisfaction survey, most owners rated installation and first use “very satisfactory,” with more than a quarter calling it “delightful.”

Ensuring customers derive the full benefits of our autoclave and maximise their sterilising process we offer free lifetime technical support and consultation and one of the best warranty programs in the industry. Priorclave also maintains a network of factory-certified authorized service agents (ASAs) in the UK and around the world.
