The economical end-to-end solution

For more than 60 years, the CertoClav EL has been our tried and tested economic autoclave end-to-end solution with valve control. A precision thermometer, a control valve, and a precision manometer with drag indicator provide precise processes and accurate results for all applications. 

This model is available in two versions, each with two temperature levels. You can choose between 125/140 °C and 115/121 °C. These temperature settings are the controlled via the control valve on the lid. These valves are not interchangeable, because the thermostat of the device is harmonized and calibrated with the respective valve!
