Eco-Friendly, High Performance Autoclave
Designed and built in the UK, the NEW LTE Touchclave-ecotech autoclave combines a high level of standard features with exceptionally low energy and water usage. Having responded to increasing customer demands to reduce their carbon footprint and utility costs, the Touchclave-ecotech is simply the most technically advanced and ‘greenest’ multi-purpose autoclave of its type.
The ecotech range currently comprises 2 x front loading models of 40 and 60-litres, both of which can be bench mounted, plus a 60-litre top-loading model with low loading height.
Ecotech’s unique external steam generation system saves both water usage and energy. No more waiting for water reservoirs to heat up as the new ecotech starts delivering steam in a matter of seconds, resulting in shorter cycle times and significant energy savings.
The single piece 316L grade stainless steel pressure vessel is completely seamless providing a smooth and clean interior.
Ecotech’s door locking system automatically draws the door closed, applying the right amount of pressure to seal every time. At the end of the cycle, the door is opened via the touchscreen.
Auto-fill and auto-drain is a standard feature ensuring that each cycle starts with a clean charge of water.
At the heart of the new ecotech range is LTE’s intuitive new icon driven TFT colour touchscreen control system which comes with 8 programmable cycles as standard. This is optionally expandable to 16, 32 or 64 programmable cycles.
All cycles are customer configurable and can be programmed at the machine interface or on a PC using LTE’s ‘Smart Create’ software, and then downloaded into the autoclave memory via the built-in USB port.
The TFT touchscreen not only displays temperatures and pressure but also cycle stage data and in-cycle messages, thus giving the user a complete overview of cycle progress and status.
The facility for remote data archiving of cycles via Ethernet connection to a PC is supplied on all machines. If required, ecotech can be configured for internal data archiving and uploaded to a USB Flash drive
When ecotech isn’t in use, it will automatically go into one of its sleep modes, effectively going to ‘standby’ and drawing minimal power. Simply touching the screen will wake the system up. Alternatively it can be programmed to wake up and start a cycle through the delayed start feature.
