ETC’s standard life sciences sterilizers / autoclaves are high vacuum (pre-vacuum) cage and rack, steam sterilizers. They are designed for general processing of feed, bedding, vented water bottles, cages, racks, carts, linens, gowns and other miscellaneous items that can tolerate a saturated steam, under pressure environment. Normal selectable operating temperature ranges are from 100 -138°C. Cycle parameters are supervisor selectable and can be modified for the particular items being processed. Once the cycle parameters have been selected, the cycle may be assigned a number and stored for future recall.
ETC’s unique manufacturing capabilities enables us to manufacture the exact size steam sterilizers needed (for all applications) at a fraction of the cost. In the end, you will receive the right size sterilizer to meet your processing needs.

Three Innovations for Bulk Sterilizers / Autoclaves
1. Sectional Autoclaves
The Sectional Autoclave grew out of a need by our customers to replace older, bulk-sized autoclaves that were virtually land locked within their facilities. Replacing the units with a conventional one-piece autoclave of the same size would have been extremely costly and disruptive to facility operations. ETC designs its Sectional Autoclaves in 2 or more pieces, depending upon access through the facility and/or elevator weight capacities. The Sectional Autoclave can be provided with any of our three door configurations.

2. Easy Glide Loading Carts
The Easy Glide Loading Cart was designed for use with medium and bulk-sized floor mounted autoclaves, where open space at each end of the autoclave was very limited. The Easy Glide Loading Cart eliminates the need for the traditional external transfer carriage. This frees up space normally occupied by the transfer carriage.
3. Vertical Rising Door Autoclaves
Additionally, our Vertical Rising Door Autoclaves have continued to provide increased processing capacity for our customers. It is a practical alternative for those who are seeking to maximize use of facility interstitial space and minimize the excessive floor and pit space required by autoclaves with horizontal sliding doors.
These innovations have proven to be highly reliable, safe, easy to maintain, and can actually save you money. ETC continues to offer the largest selection of chamber cross-sections and overall sizes to accommodate any configuration of Bulk Steam Sterilizer. By offering three different door configurations, we can insure that the best use of facility space is attained.
