The Rotoclave ® system is a unique system that uses an ASME steam pressure vessel with a unique rotating internal drum to not just decontaminate or disinifect, but sterilize waste materials. The Rotoclave ® is designed to accept various medical waste materials in open or unopened containers and subjects them to agitation, heat, and moisture.
Standard autoclaves cannot guarantee that the steam will interact with the entire waste stream. Thus, even after stationary autoclaving, it is likely that some waste has not been sterilized. The Rotoclave's combination of high temperature, pressure and moisture, in conjunction with the unique method of agitation ensures all materials will contact the necessary sterilizing steam.
How does a Rotoclave® work?
Touch screen controls make the Rotoclave® process easy. Load the waste and let the Rotoclave® do the rest!
Systems can be joined together for more throughput
Red Bag Waste gets punctured and agitated during steam cycle
High pressure and high heat render the waste sterilized
Waste is sterilized, dried and ground into unrecognizeable material
Conveyors carry the sterilized waste to containers ready for the landfill. Waste can be reduced by up to 90% of it's original volume.
We offer a full-range of Rotoclaves® in sizes from
27 cubic feet up to 3200 cubic feet to meet your needs.
Whether you’re a research facility, medical waste producer or waste treatment facility, the Rotoclave® produces a sterile, physically harmless end-product that is dried, shredded and readily accepted at landfills worldwide.
