Medical-Medical Waste Autoclaves-Medium Autoclave-Tuttnauer

The Biohazard Economic Line is ideal for most medical centers that need hospital grade medical waste treatment without large costly autoclaves. Designed to be economical high performance hard working autoclaves that offer substantial loading capacity and mobility in one easy to connect device.



  • Chamber volume of 160 liters with minimal foot-print
  • High volume water-ring vacuum-pump for fast and efficient air removal
  • Stand-by heating mode keeps the autoclave warm and ready for use
  • 316L grade stainless steel chamber and door with electro-polish finish
  • Built-in alpha-numeric printer
  • Mounted on wheels for easy mobility and sterilization on demand
  • Pre-vacuum air stream sterilization

Safety Features

  • Double locking safety device prevents door from opening at high pressure and high temperature
  • Control lock-out switch prevents starting a cycle if door is not properly locked

Steam Supply

Saturated steam can be supplied to the autoclave from building steam or an integrated generator.

The user can use either the classic CAT2007 control panel or the optional advanced touch screen panel with a sophisticated userfriendly PLC control system based on the Allen Bradley® platform. A self-diagnostic system provides messages and alerts that are clearly displayed. The LCD displays constant cycle parameter readouts and cycle progress information. Double door autoclaves can be provided with minimal or full control capabilities on the unloading side.

Classic Control System

The autoclave is equipped with an advanced control system and CAT2007 panel, and provides the following features:


  • High precision control system for perfect and repeatable sterilization results
  • Continuously displays the pressure in chamber, jacket, steam generator, and door gasket
  • Ability to customize cycle parameters to maximize flexibility
  • Password protection provides secure access
  • Convenient data backup for cycle information recovery in case of power failure or cycle interruption
  • Fail Alert – Indicates cycle failure or interruption
  • Door Alert – Indicates unlocked door

Advanced Touch Screen Control System

An optional touch screen panel with a sophisticated user-friendly PLC control system based on the advanced Allen-Bradley (AB) platform provides the following additional features:


  • A 7” touch screen for easy access to controls and information via the panel
  • Multilingual - 23 languages
  • Built-in view and back-up of historical cycle data and alarm/events stored on external flash memory
  • Technician menus: sensor calibration, change parameters, In/Out test and PID tuning
  • Graphical display of Temperature and Pressure trend graphs
  • Up to 16 different Barcodes - optional

Pre-Vacuum Exhaust Air Treatment

Effluent drawn from the chamber during the pre-vacuum stage is sterilized by a thermal effluent system (steam ejector sterilization) or will be made sterile by a filtration system.

Thermal Effluent System

Effluent drawn from the chamber enters a low-pressure stage of the steam ejector fed with live steam drawn from the steam supply. This draws the exhausted chamber effluent into direct contact with the high temperature steam for total destruction of the bio burden.

Filtration System (Optional)

The vacuum system draws the pre-vacuum chamber effluent out through the biological filter. This removes any airborne contaminants so that sterile air leaves the autoclave. The contaminants remaining in the filter are sterilized every cycle.
