View all Washers and Sterilizers

“Versatility, easy handling, high performance and reliability”

Steelco have developed a full range of high capacity autoclaves for the perfect solution for any central sterilisation supply department or theatre sterile supply unit. 

The Steelco VS Small range of sterilisers has the processing capacity of 1 - 2 STU (Sterilising Unit) or 4– 7cubic feet. Each model within our full range of vapour sterilisers combines high productivity with cost efficiency forming an effective solution to improving the economy of any CSSD.

The sterilisation cycle has been specifically conceived to reduce cycle times and energy consumption, thus improving the efficiency of the cycle. In the initial stage of the cycle, the innovative air removal method allows to Steelco VS steriliser to reach the exact vacuum much faster.

In the final stage of the cycle, the fractional vacuum phase makes it possible to better extract steam & water waste, thus reducing the drying time while maintaining high performances.

With innovative high performance sterilising technology, the new Steelco autoclaves are characterized by a rectangular chamber, completely made of stainless steel AISI 316L and are entirely covered with a full jacket.

The insulation is ensured by an innovative and practical textile covering. This new chamber design ensures the Steelco autoclaves excellent performances during the sterilisation cycles optimising energy use and reducing water and steam consumption.
