Autoclave Refurbishment & Upgrading
Ascot Autoclaves have a long established reptutation for sucessfully refurbishing and upgrading autoclaves. Pictured here are just a few of the control systems that we have replaced over the years. The autoclave above is typical of an Ascot "Ground up" refurbishment where this British Sterilizer was completely stripped down, the door mechanism and gearbox overhauled, and the frame repainted in preperation for re-piping and wiring.
Experience has proved that an Ascot Autoclaves upgrade can extend the life of an autoclave by 15 years, with the machine lifespan dictated by the pressure vessel condition rather than a failed control system. Each project is treated individually, and the work necessary to ensure that the refurbished / upgraded autoclave will function reliably and consistently is assesed at the quotation stage. It is generally necessary when carrying out refurbishment and upgrades on autoclaves to conduct risk assesments and ensure that the completed machine meets with the requirements of the machinery directive and other relevant standards and directives.
Ascot Autoclaves have carried out refurbishment and upgrades on a variety of different types of autoclaves including BMM Weston, Getinge, British Sterilizer, MDH, SAL, Astell and Sanderson, used in a variety of applications including Sterile Services, Laboratory, Pharmaceutical and Life Sciences.
Ascot Autoclaves achieve reliability of their upgrades by utilizing quality components throughout such as Omron Industrial Control equipment and SMC Pneumatics.
