The Right Autoclave for Your Industry

Industrial Autoclaves from the World's Premier Manufacturer & Supplier

We built our first autoclave in 1988–and that unit is still in regular use today.  What’s the secret?

Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity.

We keep the parts count low to remove every complication that might become the source of a problem:  Fewer moving parts to seize up; fewer heating coils to break; fewer sensors to fail; time-tested chamber engineering; 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. Explore our double-door/pass-through autoclaves, horizontal autoclaves, benchtop autoclaves, and other equipment perfect for both industrial and laboratory applications.
