Fast Liquid Cooling Option
Tuttnauer’s accelerated cooling technology reduces cycle time and protects the load by minimizing its exposure to high temperatures. Rapid cooling typically reduces cooling time by as much as 75%. After sterilization is completed, compressed air is passed through a microbiological filter into the autoclave chamber. In this way pressure drops are prevented. The pressure increase prevents load deformation, cracks or spills.
The vertical autoclave chamber is surrounded by coils that are filled with cold tap water to help rapidly cool down the chamber to a safe temperature. When the liquid’s temperature reaches the final set temperature, the cooling stage is complete.
Fan Assisted Cooling
An additional feature that further enhances the cooling stage is the optional radial ventilator. The fan circulates the hot air, inside the chamber, transferring the heat to the cooled chamber walls or cooling coils. The overall chamber and load temperature rapidly drops.
