Compact Vertical Loading Sterilizer

The VS LD Series of vertical loading autoclaves answers the specific sterilization needs of a modern laboratory. Free-standing and compact, the devices efficiently uses space to minimize operating cost while maximizing cleaning performance. With proven and reliable sterilizing technology, the machines guarantee safe, efficient, and reliable high-performance, with an unrivaled capacity/footprint ratio.

High-quality design – both hinged door and sterilization chamber in AISI 316L stainless steel – ensures both durability and ease of cleaning. Featuring 121°C / 249.8 F  and 134°C / 273.2 F cycles as well as service programs. A water ring vacuum pump, for efficient pre-vacuum air removal and post vacuum, and chamber jacket heating, to cut down cycle time and enhance the drying phase of solid loads, are available upon request.

VS LD series is equipped with a PLC digital microprocessor and a user-friendly touch screen panel HMI.
