Safety for personnel, autoclave and load are priority in the design, construction and operation of any Tuttnauer autoclave. Tuttnauer is committed to the highest industry safety standards and directives to ensure safety not only for your employees operating the autoclaves but also for your laboratory and the loads being sterilized.

  • A safety device prevents the operator from opening the door when the chamber is pressurized
  • Steam will not enter the chamber when the door is open
  • A cycle cannot start if the door is open or not properly locked
  • The door cannot unlock until liquid temperature reaches the predetermined end temperature
  • Two independent flexible PT100 temperature sensors to prevent over-boiling of liquids and explosions of bottles
