New Integral Autoclave Hoist for More Cost Efficient and Safer Media Loading

The launch of a Loadlite, a new hoist option for integrating into Priorclave top loading autoclaves facilitates easier loading of tall and heavy awkward items into the steriliser, preventing potential for personal back-injury but also enabling the full working height of the vertical sterilising chamber to be utilised

Priorclave Loadlite HoistThe addition of Loadlite can negate the need to consider purchasing a more expensive, much larger rectangular chamber autoclave, often the only alternative for taller items.

The new Loadlite hoist, available as an option on Priorclave QCS V100 and V150 top loading autoclaves, uses a quick-release clip to easily and securely fix to the handle of a standard wire basket or the company can supply tailor-made collars for fixing to the neck of fermentors for direct loading and unloading.

The hoist comprises a vertical column housing a drive rack which directly controls the vertical movement of a 590mm long jib, enabling it to lower and raise directly into the sterilising chambers or swung sideways through a 1200mm arc to lower/pick-up from an adjacent platform such as a trolley, benchtop, etc.

Loadlite becomes an integral part of the Priorclaves and is equipped with a ‘push-button’ handlset on an umbilical cord for controlling the lowering and raising of its jib.

The two top-loading autoclave models for which Loadlite has been designed have 500mm diameter chambers with depths of 500 or 720mm, and loading height of 755mm and 935mm respectively. 

The addition of the Loadlite options gives laboratories the advantage of operating more cost-efficiently, sterilising heavy awkward or tall items within the confines of the smaller footprint afforded by these smaller top-loading Priorclaves.
