The Tuttnauer 2540M autoclave is an affordable sterilization option for your office or laboratory. Tuttnauer M model autoclaves are automatically pressure controlled and electrically heated. Users can choose from a variety of heating ranges from 212-273ºF (100-134ºC) thus allowing the instrument to be used as a sterilizer at 250ºF (121ºC) or 273ºF (134ºC). The lower temperature range allows for heat sensitive objects to still be sterilized in the 2540M.
The main purpose of the 2540M autoclave is to disinfect infectious waste materials before they are disposed of. You will enjoy the 2540M’s fast cycle time of 11 minutes from a hot start. The unit is quite safe as well, featuring dual safety measures to protect from the unit getting too hot. The unit also has an automatic shut off to conclude sterilization and dry cycles.
The chamber features a double lock to prevent the machine from being opened while pressurized. You will also find that the drain valve has been conveniently placed on the front of the unit to allow for easier draining. The chamber is made from stainless steel, as is the door, and trays. The door handle is plastic to prevent excessive heat transfer and protect users upon opening the autoclave.
