Custom Industrial Autoclaves for Sale

If you aren’t processing flat trays of medical instruments or extremely large loads with great frequency, then you don’t need a rectangular-chamber autoclave—and don’t want one.  That’s why every autoclave for sale through Priorclave North America is built around an ultra-efficient cylindrical pressure chamber. On an annual basis, a cylindrical-vessel autoclave can be expected to use 1/6th to 1/10th as much water and energy as a comparable rectangular model.  That’s added savings on top of the lower initial purchase price, and reduced maintenance costs that come with relying on time-tested design principles.  

Every single model comes with our advanced programmable control system, Biomaster Protected® exterior coating, an unparalleled warranty, and free lifetime technical support.

Each Priorclave autoclave is custom built in our London factory, specifically to handle your applications.  All Priorclaves can be outfitted for “gravity” or vacuum cycles, with in-chamber or independent heating, and any number of process, cycle, and monitoring options.  Does your facility or process pose formidable power, programming, or steam generation challenges? We specialize in custom-engineered solutions and are eager to discuss how best to meet your needs and exceed your expectations.
