Sterilab

Custom Bulk Capacity Laboratory Steam Sterilizers

Sterilab laboratory steam sterilizers are designed to meet the rigorous requirements of Good Laboratory Practices while incorporating the ability to be upgraded to include cGMP features at anytime during or after the ordering process. With a range of available chamber sizes and flexible feature options, Sterilab sterilizers can be tailored to an individual project while maintaining the ability to recustomize the unit for future applications. This lowers the initial investment while ensuring the long-term usability of the sterilizer should requirements change.
Sterilab Laboratory Steam Sterilizer

Bulk capacity sterilizers for high-throughput sterilization of laboratory equipment, materials and vivariums.

Chamber Construction

BMT USA Sterilab sterilizers are equipped with 316L stainless steel chambers for superior durability. The chamber door is also made from solid plate 316L stainless steel, ensuring the door will not warp over time. Precision machined door brackets for retaining the door on all four sides ensure smooth travel and improved security during the sterilization cycle. All chamber connections are sanitary clamp type and sloped to drain. Lubricant free door gaskets last longer and will eliminate particle shedding into laboratories or clean rooms.

Key Features:

Stainless Steel Chamber

The chamber and chamber door are constructed of 100% 316L stainless steel.

GMP-Ready Design

GMP-ready design allows for upgrading the sterilizer on-site to comply with cGMP guidelines if ever required.

Temperature Uniformity

Temperature distribution inside the chamber better than +/- 0.5°C

Energy Efficient

The chamber and all piping are fully insulated to help reduce utility consumption. Equipped water recirculation system reduces water consumption by up to 75%

PLC Controls

Industrial-grade Allen-Bradley or Siemens PLC-based control systems deliver repeatable operation.

Non-Proprietary

Fully constructed with high-grade non-proprietary components for improved reliability and serviceability.

Lubricant-Free Door Gasket

Lubricant-free door gaskets provide greater longevity and eliminate particle shedding into clean rooms.

Automatic Doors

Automatic pneumatic driven precision sliding chamber doors improve safety and convenience during operation.

Sterilab Sterilization Cycles

Sterilab sterilizers can be programmed with any combination of the sterilization cycles described below with configurable parameters for each cycle phase. The programmed cycle recipe is stored in the sterilizer’s control system memory and is recalled and started with the touch of a button on the operator interface. All recipes are also protected from unauthorized changes via a multi-level authentication system.

The dry good cycle provides effective sterilization of hard goods, filters, linens, and other porous materials, wrapped goods, and products that are unaffected by vacuum. The load is preconditioned utilizing vacuum and steam pulses. The cycle then advances to heat-up and continues until it reaches the settable exposure temperature of 110­°C up to 135°C. Once the exposure temperature set point is reached, the controller counts down the exposure time. After the exposure time is completed, drying begins and can be accomplished by fast exhaust and pulling a deep vacuum to remove moisture.

This cycle provides effective sterilization of rubber stoppers, hoses, and other material where trapped moisture can be difficult to remove. The load is preconditioned utilizing vacuum and steam pulses. The cycle then advances to heat-up and continues until it reaches the settable exposure temperature of 110°C up to 135°C. Once the exposure time is completed, drying begins and is accomplished by fast exhaust, vacuum, and air pulses which are highly effective at removing moisture from the load. To aid drying further, the air can be heated.

The solution cycle with gravity effectively sterilizes liquid products or items in vented or sealed glass containers. The load is preconditioned utilizing steam pulses. The cycle then advances to heat-up and continues until it reaches the settable exposure temperature of 110°C up to 135°C. Once the exposure temperature set point is reached, the controller counts down the exposure time. After the exposure time is completed, exhaust ramping gradually returns liquids to a temperature below boiling.

The solution cycle with gravity effectively sterilizes liquid products or items in vented or sealed glass containers. The load is preconditioned utilizing steam pulses. The cycle then advances to heat-up and continues until it reaches the settable exposure temperature of 110°C up to 135°C. Once the exposure temperature set point is reached, the controller counts down the exposure time. After the exposure time is completed, cooling of the product is started by injecting air at a pressure similar to that of the product to avoid breakage of the container. Cold water is introduced to the jacket of the chamber to help cool the product at a faster rate.
Sterivap sterilizers can be equipped with optional effluent sterilization cycles suitable for BSL-3 laboratory applications. During effluent sterilization cycles, all steam effluent is captured, filtered, and sterilized prior to being drained out the chamber, ensuring laboratory staff and the environment are further protected from contamination.

Sterilizer Loading Equipment

BMT USA manufactures stainless steel loading equipment in standard or custom designs to accommodate any type of load. Our smaller chamber sizes can be equipped with wire or perforated shelves or loading racks, while large chambers can be equipped with loading carts and transfer trolleys. Large pit-mounted chamber include options for tracks and rub rails that can be designed to work with almost any type of wheel configuration on existing equipment. Carts with drop down wheels are also available for rooms with limited space.

Sterilab Chamber Sizes

Sterilab Steam Sterilizers are offered in a range of chamber sizes and volumes. The table below contains some of our standard models; however, we can design and build a customized solution to match your exact chamber capacity, exterior dimension, and mounting requirements.
