The Portaclave is heated by a single internal element. This is available for use with 230V or 110V electrical supplies. Please indicate the required voltage when ordering. The temperature is controlled by an electronic temperature controller and a PT100 probe. The ST 1528 is fitted with an automatic cut-out to prevent it boiling dry. Every autoclave is electrically tested in compliance with BS3456 Part 101 1987.

The Portaclave® is made from stainless steel with a polished exterior for easier cleaning. The lid is removable for full width access. Items to be sterilised can be placed in the inner liner provided with the machine. Alternately, Dressing Drums and Wire Mesh Baskets are available. The lid locking device is comprised of six wing nuts and six lid locking lugs. This ensures that the lid cannot be opened while the vessel is under pressure. After the sterilising period, a condensing vacuum is drawn to aid drying. This is particularly useful for dressings and drapes.

The Portaclave® is particularly suitable for destructive sterilisation. The operator is not restricted to a set sterilising period. This can be adjusted to suit the application.

The Portaclave® comes complete with: 

  • Inner Liner with Handles
  • Easy to follow Users Manual
  • Manufacturers Safety Test Certificate
  • Manufacturers One Year Guarantee (this does not affect your statutory rights)
