60L Benchtop Steam Autoclave

A rugged benchtop autoclave with all the features of a full-size industrial front-loader.

The Priorclave 60L Benchtop has the same core design and programmable control system as our full-size front loading autoclaves. Roomier than conventional medical-grade tabletop sterilizers, it still easily fits on deep counters, islands, or a mobile equipment stand. It accommodates more than 60 125mL flasks, five 2L flasks, or four racks of test tubes, and is a great resource for shared facilities and education.

Many research, industrial, and teaching facilities in need of a benchtop lab sterilizer end up with a low-end tabletop medical sterilizer. Unfortunately, the plumbing and pressure vessels in these “economical” sterilizers aren’t up to research tasks. They often start to break down in the first 24 months, and are unrepairable after just five years.
True research-grade benchtop autoclaves are built to last, with ASME-stamped 316L stainless steel pressure vessels. They offer all the flexibility, ease-of-use, and reliability that a small lab needs: Plug-n-play simplicity with fully featured programmable control systems optimized for media prep, liquid, and waste loads.

Priorclave benchtop sterilizers are built in the UK for years of trouble-free operation, even in the most adverse conditions. Their modular design is completely upgradable to meet your evolving needs. Each unit is designed for safe operation under all conditions, and fitted with the industry-favored Tactrol® 2 Control System. Priorclave autoclaves offer an unparalleled 36-month parts and labor warranty, and a 20-year pressure vessel warranty.


At Priorclave, the safety of your staff and students comes first. Our Quickseal 2 door, with Permission-based Door Release, is fitted with thermal and pressure locks to prevent opening at load temperatures above 80°C (176°F) and pressures above 0.2 Bar (2.9 psi) (as per BS 2646). The door is also fitted with a Redundant Safety Gate, so that any residual pressure can safely escape before the door can move freely (in accordance with the UK Health and Safety Executive’s note PM73). All units come with a Pressure Safety Valve set to 2.5 Bar (36.3 psi) and a 150°C (302°F) thermal cut out (per BS 6759); selected external panels and surfaces are thermally insulated. All front loading models have non-tip shelves.
Priorclave is the only manufacturer offering the same fully featured programmable control system on every model, from the smallest laboratory benchtop sterilizer to the largest industrial pass-through unit. The Tactrol 2 system puts every operating parameter within your control, with no re-training required as you move from one unit to another. Using our Tactrol 2 Control System, operators can limit user access to specific pre-programmed, validated cycles, via fail-safe one-button start or key switch activation. Program modifications are likewise key switch or password protected.
All Priorclave autoclaves comply with current US, Canada, UK, and EU safety regulations. They are manufactured under an ISO 9001:2008 quality management system in our UKAS-accredited facility. Our autoclaves and control systems are ETL listed and EMC certified, and feature ASME-stamped pressure vessels. These pressure vessels are manufactured entirely in-house, and tested to 1.5 times their maximum working pressure. They have full insurance approval for pressure vessel design and construction and are CE Marked under the Pressure Equipment Directive PD5500:2000 Cat 3, Certificate Number SS42059010-2 Rev 1. They also conform to the general requirements of BS 2646 and are CE Marked for BS EN61010-2-41, Low Voltage and Electromagnetic Compatibility.
