Design and Technical Features

FOB4 autoclave can be designed in two chamber dimensions: 147 liters (FOB4-TS) with single vertical sliding door or 210 liters (FOB4S-TS – FOB4/L TS) with double vertical sliding door for pass-through purposes. The vertically automatic sliding doors are pneumatically activated for space efficiency in laboratory and hospitals.

FOB4 autoclave has internal AISI 316 L stainless steel plates fed by steam used both as heat-exchanger system for steam pre-heating and to cool the chamber temperature by means of cold softened water. As an option these plates can be used for drying purposes at the end of the cycle.

Fedegari designs laboratory autoclaves combining operators’ safety as well as equipment performances. Hence temperature sensors and pressure transducers assure maximum precision and stability of the sterilization temperature, grant the highest level of safety and guarantee process reproducibility.

FOB4 Lab Sterilizers are equipped with DCS PLUS 10 process controller which is highly flexible: 30 cycles easy to customize in a multi-user environment with a large touch-screen color video-graphic display and interface for remote monitoring via Ethernet control. DCS PLUS 10 process controller is fully validated and documented.
