Buying – Of the various factors which drive the economics of operating an autoclave, the means of heating seems to be the most important one. This has a great relevance as energy prices rise. Electric heat is 100% efficient, and it is the easiest and most accurate parameter to control, as well as the least costly to maintain.
However, the cost per kilowatt-hour makes this the most expensive factor. The money spent on electricity over an autoclave’s full service life is proved to be equal to four to six times the price paid for the autoclave in the first place.
You can strike great deals while buying online at Ebay and Amazon. Also Autoclave manufacturers provide Test Autoclaves at their laboratories where you can validate the sterilizability of the autoclave before buying them.
The price of an autoclave will depend largely upon its diameter and to a much lesser extent upon its length. While doubling the design pressure might increase the cost of the autoclave by 50%, doubling the diameter might further increase its cost.
When looking into whether to purchase a new autoclave or an existing machine, the prospective purchaser will find that used machines may not be less expensive than a new one built to his precise specifications and that they can be very hard to find in the required configuration.
If a used machine matching the requirements is located at a reasonable price, you will need to check for door hinge wear, undocumented modifications made by the user, pressure vessel registration documents, construction prints, autoclave’s U-1 form, data plate etc.. Uninspected additions made after the insurance inspection may not be covered under insurance. Also , one should know that Homemade pressure vessels cannot be repaired at any shop even for insignificant modifications.
