At a recent sustainability conference (International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories – I2SL) in Boston, Consolidated’s CEO Arthur Trapotsis challenged the steam sterilization industry to provide more “eco-friendly” equipment to research labs and hospitals. Trapotsis said that autoclaves are one of…
Is Your Laboratory on the Path to LEED Certification? Learn How Your Steam Sterilizers Can Make a Difference.
Laboratories are notorious for energy consumption. As a rule of thumb, a lab consumes roughly 5-10 times more energy per square foot than an average office building. That’s why it’s vital for a laboratory to implement eco friendly equipment, such as water savings systems for steam sterilizers.
Whether you’re building a new laboratory or retrofitting an existing space—it’s time to start thinking ‘green.’ The world’s leading labs, universities, and research facilities are installing eco-friendly autoclaves equipped with water saving systems in an effort to lower their environmental impact and realize cost savings.
Purchasing an autoclave is a significant investment for any research facility, so it is important to work with the right autoclave manufacturing company. At Consolidated Sterilizer Systems, we take great pride in the autoclaves we build and believe these eight factors set us apart:
Steam autoclaves (also referred to as sterilizers) are common and essential pieces of equipment in today’s microbiology and animal labs; however, they traditionally consume a significant amount of water.
Water is the lifeblood of a laboratory autoclave. The quality of water used will drastically impact the lifespan of the autoclave chamber and steam generator, as well as the types of loads that can be sterilized. To understand why, let’s address four common questions about water quality and ways to remedy some of the issues you may be facing with your autoclave. Read more →
