Industrial autoclave

What is an industrial autoclave?

These are hermetically sealed, cylindric pressure vessels in which large volumes of product can be processed at high pressure and temperature. By heating the product for a given amount of time, bacteria and spores are killed. Industrial autoclaves can be used for a wide variety of industries and applications. In addition to sterilizing batches of canned and packaged food, you will find these autoclaves in the medical sector, wood and aerospace industry, among others.
