T-Max Narrow Series Autoclaves for CSSDs, OR and Medical Centers
- 310 to 860 Liter chamber volume (4 to 12 StU)
- Single or double door
- Automatic vertical sliding doors
- 316L stainless steel chamber
- ASME and PED compliant
Designed to comply with the European EN285 standard with chambers designed for StU (Sterilization Unit) load volumes (4 to 12 StU chamber volume). The autoclave sterilizers are designed and manufactured in a state-of-the-art facility in compliance with strict international standards to ensure safe re-use of sterilized equipment. Tuttnauer also builds customized autoclave configurations to adapt to a customer’s site layout. All models are available with either single or double doors.
T-Max autoclaves operate with saturated steam as the sterilizing agent with a temperature range of 105 °C (221°F) to 138 °C (280 °F) and a working chamber pressure that meets AMSE and PED requirements.
A narrow design autoclave is as wide as 99cm and can sterilize a fully loaded chamber with 4 to 12 STU. Facilities with space layout limitations will benefit from narrow design autoclaves which provide high capacity in a limited space. Narrow design autoclaves allow for more autoclaves in a given space to ensure continued sterile processing in case of autoclave downtime.
Fully jacketed chambers ensure uniform heat distribution to ensure consistent sterilization conditions for all loads in chamber. A chamber that is not fully jacketed may have cool spots which can cause improper sterilization.
The optional AquaMinimal Radiator and AquaMinimal Chiller water saving systems are the best solutions to minimize water consumption between 50% and 90%.
With years of research and customer feedback we have fine-tuned our formula for perfectly optimized cycles with the precise combination of pulses, timing, temperature control, speed and drying.
Stainless steel piping and connectors are used to avoid corrosion which is necessary to safeguard the integrity of the autoclave and prevent contamination of the sterilized loads (either as chemical or particulate contamination).
The optional R.PC.R software allows for tracing sterilized loads by barcode. All cycle records and associated barcodes are automatically recorded to a PC on your network. In additional, R.PC.R allows for convenient access to cycle reports, including graphs and tables (in PDF format).
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 sterile processing facility and the loads being sterilized.
Tuttnauer autoclaves are provided with redundant independent monitoring systems and audiovisual alarms to notify operators of any issue that requires attention. An emergency stop button on the loading side of the autoclave may be used to safely stop the autoclave cycle.
The autoclave doors are designed with a number of independent mechanical and digital safety features.
