The Consolidated HC Steam Sterilizer is an FDA cleared medical device that is available in 3 sizes. Each model comes equipped with the EZ-Glide™ Power Sliding Door — a sleek vertical door design including ergonomic, safety, and engineering features that simplify operation, improve serviceability, and document sterilization function for record keeping. All models offer high performance steam sterilization capacity in a minimal footprint.

Consolidated autoclaves are now able to connect to the internet—allowing scientists, lab managers, and facilities personnel to monitor their autoclaves and download their sterilization data from any internet-ready device. For more information, click here.
Smooth, safe, and easy to use, this automatic power door may also be manually operated in the event of a power failure. The use of counterweights and pneumatic actuators reduce the complexity of the door mechanism and avoids maintenance issues that commonly arise with motors, hydraulics, or water pistons.
Never worry about sticky doors and jams. An abrasion-resistant, non-stick gasket prevents door jams.
Unlike other vertical door autoclaves, the EZ-Glide sterilizer features low mounted pulleys strategically positioned to reduce wear and tear that can result from steam corrosion.
Our generators deliver a high rate of steam without lag time between cycles. The increased steam capacity accelerates recovery and achieves cycle set-points more quickly. Also, a large service opening allows for easier maintenance and inspection. For more information on ProGEN™ generators, visit here.
The door gasket is actuated by air instead of steam. This feature extends gasket life and provides a secure door even in the event of a total power loss or component failure. If facility air is not available, CSS will supply a Whisper-Quiet Air Compressor. Unlike other air compressors, the Whisper Quiet operates at 35dB (the volume of a conversation).
A hinged front panel allows for easy and full access to internal components from the front. This reduces the space required to service the autoclave.
Traditional autoclaves waste an extraordinary amount of water through effluent cooling. Our WaterEco® series is designed to reduce water consumption, thereby lowering operational costs and contributing to the building’s LEED Certification. Calculate your potential savings here.

“Consolidated sterilizers are simple and reliable for the end users to use as well as easy to work on from service perspective. They use nonproprietary parts which keeps the customers total cost of ownership low. I recommend Consolidated to all my customers when they are considering their next sterilizer purchase.”
Reducing the utility costs and carbon footprint are important consideration for many facility and sustainability stakeholders. Consolidated understands the role autoclaves can play, and we’ve developed these state-of-the-art configurations to significantly reduce water and energy usage for both new and existing sterilizers.
All new sterilizers are equipped with a calendar-based automatic start-up and shut-down feature known as EcoCalendar. This feature helps minimize utility consumption and HVAC load through a software controlled, automatic steam shut-off program. Utilities can be programmed for automatic start-up and shut-down based on time of day and day of the week.
EcoJacket is included on all new sterilizers and automatically lowers the temperature of the sterilizer jacket in between cycles, thereby reducing steam and water usage and heat-load to the room.
Like the EcoCalendar, this feature is equipped on all new sterilizers and helps save energy by shutting the steam supply off when not in use. It functions similarly to a “sleep-mode” for your home computer. Simply set the desired idle time and the autoclave will enter Sleep Mode after the set idle time has elapsed. This is an easy way to save energy (both steam and conditioned air) and water and is ideal for sterilizers that are periodically used.
The WaterEco system is included on all Consolidated sterilizers. In addition to saving water, it monitors water consumption and cools effluent using a combination of air, previously cooled effluent and a minimal amount of cold water. WaterEco systems compatible with chilled water are available as well. Learn More.
This feature integrates the sterilizer with a local canopy hood to reduce unnecessary venting of conditioned air. Form C Dry Contacts signal your building automation system to power-down the hood when the door of the autoclave is closed. This allows medical facilities to better control the heat-load and environmental conditions within the facility.
Sterilizers utilizing house steam can be configured to allow for a jacket steam return. This helps save energy and steam consumption by returning sterile steam from the jacket back to the “house” facility boiler through a condensate return line.
In most situations, standard house steam is adequate, with the use of an inlet filter to clean the steam.
Electric – Integrated Boiler
Required when house steam is not adequate and can supply up to 4 kW. Consolidated offers multiple options that can go under the sterilizer: A carbon steel boiler, the ProGEN Carbon Steel boiler, and a stainless steel boiler, the ProGEN Stainless Boiler.
Electric – Remote Boiler
This will sit adjacent to the sterilizer and are larger than 45 kW.
Constructed from stainless steel, this system does not employ heating elements like an electric steam generator. It utilizes existing house steam to heat high purity water.
Standard voltages for electric boilers are 208, 240, 380, 480, 3 phase. Voltages must be determined prior to ordering to configure the heating elements in the generator.

All sterilizers are designed for gravity air removal as standard. For gravity air removal, the buoyancy of steam is used to displace the air.
There are two vacuum systems available:
Venturi/ Water Ejector vacuum system is a lower upfront cost option.
Liquid Ring Pump vacuum system is more efficient in removing air, uses less water and has greater controllability.
316L Stainless Steel
All chambers are made standard with 316L stainless steel.
304L Stainless Steel
Available as an upgrade: 316L stainless steel chamber and 304L jacket.
Available as an upgrade: If the water quality is above 1 MΩ/cm 316L stainless steel chamber and jacket are required. This option is typically selected for tissue culture facilities or facilities feeding distilled or deionized (DI) water to the sterilizer.
Brass, Bronze, and Copper
All plumbing and components are made from high-quality brass, bronze, and copper construction. All sterilizer are built with these materials as standard construction.
Available as an upgrade: 316L stainless steel plumbing and components is recommended for use with high-purity water and steam (steam generated from RO/DI water).
Consolidated prides itself on providing medical autoclaves with the lowest cost of ownership in the industry.
We utilized a network of factory-trained service representatives who perform preventative and emergency service at affordable rates and in a timely fashion, maximizing your uptime.
Our sterilizers are designed to use high quality, affordable, non-proprietary parts.
Lower Utility Costs
Our sterilizers will help you save money on water and energy costs through utility-saving (sustainable) features that are built into the sterilizers.
