  • A cooling device that can prevent damage to containers.
  • Electro-mechanical lid lock system Ⅱ
  • Dual interlock mechanism

  •  ■ Features & Functions
    F-value control
    F-value that is important for the retort sterilization is calclulated and controlled. You can safety make the retort food of your choice with simple settings.
    Core temperature sensor
    The internal temperature of the food is measured with a core temperature sensor, and the F-value is calculated and displayed. In MODE 1, when the temperature of a core temperature sensor reaches the target F value, the sterilization (cooking) stage is finished and the stage proceeds to the cooling stage. It is possible to print and record the data by connecting an optional printer.
    Pressure control method
    High temperature and high pressure sterilization is performed by gradually raising the chamber temperature and pressure. This is effective for preventing damage to aluminum packs or film packs for retort foods
    A cooling device that can prevent damage to containers.
    Cooling water is sprayed while pressurizing the chamber with air in order to prevent rapid pressure change due to sudden condensation of vapor in the chamber during shower cooling. The seal portion of a bottle or container is prevented from being damaged.
    Automatic operation
    All stages from water supply, pressurization, sterilization (disinfection) to cooling are performed automatically.                
    Compact body made of stainless steel
    A stainless steel body that is clean and excellent in corrosion resistance is used. Sapce-saving compact autoclave.
    Equipped with external output terminal as standard.
    As a printer output connector is equipped as standard, it is easy to output data.
    Electro-mechanical lid lock system Ⅱ
    The electric clamp lid is employed. Locking/unlocking of the lid can be performed simply by pressing a button.The chamber opening is widely opened for easy loading and unloading.
    Dual interlock mechanism
    The lid is locked by detecting chamber pressure and temperature during sterilization.Even if an operation is interrupted manually, the lock state is maintained.

    ■Sterilization tape: Clear color change makes it easy to identify exposure to sterilization process.
    ■Sterilization label: Paste directly on the object to be sterilized, you can check the sterilization treatment. After sterilization, the letters "sterilized" appear and it can be easily distinguished from untreated materials.
    ■Sterilization bag: There are sterilization bags that are made of paper, roll type or one seal back type. Most of them are heat seal type, but tape seal type and aluminum plate seal type can also be available.
