The vast experience acquired at Steelco Group in over thirty years of activity enables us to provide a highly diversified saturated steam sterilizer to meet the requirements of the most varied applications.
Built to a very high standard, each unit is tailored to the customer’s specifications. AV series is used to sterilize with clean/pure saturated steam materials such as vials, bottles, glass items, fabric materials, sealed or vented containers, rubber parts, machine parts, filters, etc.
The devices feature chamber volumes from 195 to 10.000 liters (7 to 353 cu ft) in several dimensions with configurable options. The AV Series of steam sterilizers are high-performing, reliable, and easy to use. Its sterilization cycle has been specifically designed to minimize time and energy consumption while maximizing efficiency and throughput.
The AV Series of saturated steam sterilizers is designed, manufactured, validated, and documented according to the latest global practices and standards to facilitate customers’ compliance with current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs).
High-quality ASI 316L stainless steel chamber and jacket guarantee long-term reliability and steam cleanliness. The chamber is self-draining with a cylindrical or rectangular cross section and covered by a full jacketed system of dimple welded type for fast and uniform heat transfer and optimization of chamber temperature distribution. The machine body is completely insulated with ceramic material and with external cladding stainless steel. Piping is in compliance with ASME BPE made of AISI 316L stainless steel with tri-clamp fittings and all machine components of sanitary type.
Steelco offers a wide selection of saturated steam sterilizers to exceed industry standards, available in single or pass-through versions, with hinged or sliding doors. The AV Series provides flexible configuration and versatility. AV series saturated steam sterilizers can be configured as standard with different layout configurations:
Steelco can install new equipment into an existing automation system by adopting a simple (HMI) or more sophisticated (SCADA) man-machine interface. User-friendly control systems developed according to the latest ISPE GAMP© Guidelines and designed for FDA 21 CFR Part 11, EU Annex 11 compliance. System platforms available include Siemens or Rockwell/Allen-Bradley, which are completely integrated with the client's IS system, and comprehensive network services such as integration with MES can be provided.

from 195 litres / 7 cu ft
to 10.000 litres / 353 cu ft
Custom dimensions are available upon request.
The overall dimensions may vary according to machine configuration and customer requirements. Depending on space and operational requirements, an electrical cabinet may be installed remotely from the machine and a steam generator.
The AVD Series combines all the features of a Pharma Grade Saturated steam sterilizer with the capability of performing bio-decontamination cycles using VH2O2.
The AMS Series of Pharmaceutical Grade Steam-Air Mixture sterilizers is a range of autoclaves designed for terminal sterilization using steam air mixture technology.
Steelco’s range of autoclaves using superheated water are for the terminal sterilization of injectable solutions.
Sterile continuity is the vision. The SPE Series is ideal for treating closures for containers normally used in the pharmaceutical industry, where continuous sterility has to be maintained between different phases.
