The Hirayama Hiclave HVE-50 offers more safety and more user-friendly features. The HVE-50 has a few interesting features that might be well suited for an office or laboratory looking for a larger autoclave. There is a process status display that gives information about what is happening during sterilization. There is a memory function that is user programmable and allows you to change the settings for sterilization and have those settings be saved. There is a pulse exhaust system that is used for sterilization of liquids. This allows the chamber to exhaust in a rapid manner so media can be safely sterilized without it boiling over. There is a dual-sensing interlock system that locks the lid when the inner pressure and temperature are up. One of the nicest features about the HVE-50 is the one-touch open lid chamber. There are 110V, 120V, 220V, 230V, 240V, and 50/60Hz models available, so you will want to specify what your needs are when ordering. The unit weighs 57kg or 125lbs. so it needs to be freight shipped and is not designed to be a benchtop unit. The sterilization temperature range of the HVE-50 is 105 to 135 degrees Celsius, but the unit also had a warming range of 45 to 60 degrees Celsius. The HVE-50 is also a good autoclave if you need to do prolonged sterilizations as it allows for up to 250 minutes of operation!
