Large Healthcare Sterilizers

Animal Care - Large Steam SterilizerProduct Description

The ever-growing demand for scientific equipment with higher capacity and better performance, has led to the development of the Tuttnauer large line of rectangular sterilizers. This model line was designed specifically to handle a larger load capacity, covering a wide field of applications. Multiple cycle options (vacuum, gravity, liquid) come standard, with a full temperature range.


Tuttnauer’s large line of autoclaves serve as standard equipment in Laboratories, Hospitals, Animal Care Centers, and High-Containment Facilities. These models operate with saturated steam as the sterilization agent and incorporate the same techniques as our other models. Typical animal care applications include glassware, cages, bedding, feed, and surgical instruments. The end user has the ability to select from a wide range of steam sterilization programs and test cycles, meeting the needs of any marketplace.

  • The Bowie-Dick Test checks the effectiveness of removing air during the cycle
  • The Vacuum Leak Test checks the integrity of the chamber and piping system



The sterilizer chamber is made from 316L stainless steel and requires a steam source in order to operate. Carbon and stainless steel generators are available, depending on the application. All models can be manufactured using single or double door configurations along with sliding/hinged door options.
