Ventilab PL

Flexible solution concepts for unique applications Ventilab® PL

The main difference between the Ventilab® PL and the Vakulab® PL is the taller chamber that allows a fan to be built in without reducing the chamber volume. In addition, all of the equipment components necessary for sterilizing liquids in closed containers, such as a temperature probe, chamber wall, fan, and the “Closed solutions” software package, are already included as a standard feature.

Ventilab PL

The specialist for steam/air mixture processes.

The Vakulab® PL is ideally suited for sterilizing solid and porous materials, liquids in open or loosely sealed containers as well as for sterilizing infectious waste and liquids in closed containers by means of the steam/air mixture process.

The sterilizer complies with the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) 2014/68/EU and the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. CE marking according to PED 2014/68/EU. The standards applied are: DIN 58951-2 Steam sterilizers for laboratory use, AD 2000 Design of Pressure Vessels and DIN EN 62304 Medical device software. Sterilization pressure vessel, double-walled, internal walls and steam jacket made from stainless steel, material no. of the internal walls: 1.4404 (AISI 316 L)/jacket: 1.4571 (AISI 316 Ti). Piping system: constructed as per DIN EN 285, steam-conducting pipes and valves made from stainless steel. All pipes are color coded and thermally insulated. Software validation according to DIN EN 62304, electrical equipment for measurement and control according to DIN EN 285.
