The Right Autoclave for Your Industry

Industrial Autoclaves & Sterilizers

Priorclave built their first autoclave in 1988–and that unit is still reliably running, 30 years later.  What’s their secret?

Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity.

Priorclave removes every complexity that might become the source of a problem:  Fewer moving parts to seize up; fewer heating coils to break; fewer sensors to fail; a time-tested cylindrical chamber design; a rugged, flexible, fully programmable computerized control system.  

The result: less water wasted, less electricity consumed, less time spent on maintenance and repair, greater value at lower cost.

There is one way to be sure that your lab autoclave will perform to your specifications: Have it built to your specifications. Every Priorclave autoclave begins with a conversation. Our team explores your sterilization needs, and helps you determine the right configuration of the right model for your tasks, facilities, and requirements.  Then that autoclave is built by hand, from start to finish, in our London factory. Priorclave is one of the very few sterilizer manufacturers in the world who retains complete control of their supply chain by manufacturing all principal components in-house–including their 316L stainless steel pressure vessels and programmable control systems.
