AC 1300 – AC 1400
Cabinet Cage and Bottle Washers
AC 1300 and AC 1400 are large size cabinet washers specially designed to wash and sanitize all types of animal care equipment of your vivarium: cages, feeding bottles, and fish tanks. The compact design grants the highest flexibility of installation and minimizes operating costs. The two models share common technical features and differ only in chamber depth:
- AC 1300 – Chamber depth: 730 mm / 28.74″
- AC 1400 – Chamber depth: 900 mm / 35.43″
Available in single door or double door version for pass-through application (double door version for AC 1400 only), both washers feature an upper drop-down vertical space-saving sliding loading door. The lower section of the door, when open, acts as a loading platform for the loading tray allowing a convenient loading and unloading job. The devices offer the highest levels of cleaning efficacy, final rinse temperature is guaranteed to reach 85°C/185°F, water is sprayed through an independent rinsing circuit.
Electrical or steam heated, the units are equipped with two chemical dosing pumps as standard, controlled by a microprocessor which allows to set the optimal dosing level for each type of cycle. Additional dosing systems can be added upon request. A comprehensive range of dedicated accessories allows for the optimized loading of animal cages and washing carts with injection systems for bottles.
Optimal Cleaning Performance
The washing system, operating with independent washing and rinsing hydraulic circuits, features three-level rotating spray arms positioned on the top, middle, and bottom levels of the washing chamber. Washing water is loaded in the washing chamber sump and heated up to the temperature defined for the washing phase. Final rinse water for sanitization is heated up into an AISI 316L pre-heating side tank. Temperatures are monitored by temperature probes.
Smart Filtering System
Steelco protects your equipment’s life cycle and guarantees safety to the user: an innovative multistage water filtering system combined with a self-cleaning filter for recirculation of the washing water. In addition, the machines are equipped with an independent washing/rinsing system for an extra level of cleanness.
Aquatic Tank Processing Kit
Specific kit for the reprocessing of aquatic tanks used in research facilities, including three chemical dosage pumps, upgrade to washing circuit, flow meters, and a conductivity probe.
Easy Maintenance and Access to Chemicals
The electric control panel is installed on sliding rails for easy maintenance. Frontal access to chemical storage up to two tanks of 10 lt / 2.64 Gal US, equipped with level control sensors.
High-quality AISI 316 L stainless steel chamber and doors combined with AISI 304 external body for long-term reliability and maximum hygiene.
Water and energy saving
An elaborate system of recirculation and reuse of the water used during the final rinse significantly reducing energy and water consumption.
An integrated chemical dosing pump, controlled by a microprocessor, allows modifying the quantity of product required adapting it to every type of cycle.
Flow meters for redundancy chemical dosing control and a conductivity sensor for accurate measuring of the conductivity value during the final rinse are available as options.
