Tuttnauer autoclaves are specifically designed for laboratory sterilisation applications. They provide high quality, repeatable performance and documentation for quality assurance processes. The 2840EL is a benchtop, front loading autoclave designed to fit neatly onto the laboratory workbench.

Chamber internal dimensions are 280 x 400mm and external dimensions are 530 x 440 x 630mm (w x h x d). 

Tuttnauer laboratory autoclaves are used in applications such as research institutes, universities, medical, pharma, biotech, food and chemical industries.

For the built-in steam generation model, ask for details of the 2840ELC-G.

If you need the freestanding model, see the 2840ELV or if you need a slightly larger benchtop model, see the 3840EL.
