Tuttnauer Used Autoclave

Ensuring that your medical equipment is completely sterilized is vital. It can be difficult to choose between the various autoclaves and brands on the market. From the Midmark M11 Ultraclave Automatic Sterilizer to the Tuttnauer EZ9 Autoclave, this guide will provide you with every factor you need when considering which medical product to buy for your practice or institution.

Determine Your Price Range

This is the first thing you should look at when you’re trying to choose between different autoclaves. There are a few things that determine how much an autoclave is worth and as such, you will also need to consider what you’re willing to part with regarding the right used autoclave for you.

If you’re looking for an autoclave on a budget, you may want to consider buying this Pre-Owned Ritter M9 Autoclave:

This autoclave has proven to be a staple in the medical community. Its manufacturer Midmark has described the product as the following:

The Ritter M9 packs all of the reliable sterilizing power you need into a company unit for areas with limited space. With out strong heritage of quality, value and reliability, you can’t go wrong with the Ritter M9.

Not only this, but you can expect this autoclave to provide you with reliability and simplicity of use. The controls are as simple as loading the sterilizer, starting the process, and removing the equipment when the autoclave is done sterilizing.

If, on the other hand, you’re looking for an autoclave that’s more robust, you may want to consider the Tuttnauer 3870M Large Capacity Autoclave. This is especially useful for those who need to sterilize large pieces of equipment or several pieces of smaller equipment.

Tuttnauer 3870M

Tuttnauer describes this autoclave as:

[Having] the capacity to meet the most demanding offices, the 3870 accommodates longer instruments or a large number of small instruments. The low maintenance manual autoclave is the ideal choice that fits all your needs.

While this autoclave is one of AKW Medical’s more expensive machines, it does provide quality and space that is hard to beat by other autoclaves.

Consider the Manufacturer’s Reputation

When you want to buy a medical product such as a sterilizer, it is essential that you consider the reputation of the company or manufacturer such as Midmark or Tuttnauer along with the product or autoclave itself.

There are a few ways in which you can look up customer reviews; for example, you can look at testimonials across different websites to ensure you have different opinions from other professional who use the same equipment you are looking to buy right at your disposal.

The opinion of someone who has previously bought the product is essential when looking at whether it’s a medical machine that will suit your practice or institution’s goals or not.

Determine Your Individual Needs

Your individual needs will determine the medical equipment that you will eventually buy. If, for example, you work in a small medical office, you won’t need a large capacity autoclave like the aforementioned Tuttnauer 3870M. You may, however, find use in the Tuttnauer 1730 Valueklave.

Tuttnauer USA describes their 1730 Valueklave as:

…[meeting] all the basic sterilization needs at an unmatched price. Compact footprint and easy operation make it the ideal choice small offices or as a second autoclave.” The 1730 provides buyers with the perfect balance between value and functionality.

For those who, on the other hand, need to have an autoclave that can sterilize a large number of tools or a smaller number of large tools, Pelton & Crane Magnaclave Sterilizer may be a good option.

This autoclave is useful for a wide range of needs. It can be used in a medical office, in a dental office, and more! This autoclave has a large chamber that ensures multiple pieces of equipment can be sterilized at the same time. The stand that comes with this stand allows buyers to store equipment under the autoclave.

The dimensions of the chamber are as follows: 15.25” by 26” by 15” and if you want to install this in your office, you’ll need a space of 64” by 56” by 85”.

You’ll also want to know whether you’re looking to buy automatic autoclaves or manual autoclaves. Both of these have their own benefits, but you’ll want to choose your autoclave depending on what you’re looking to get out of it. While it may seem straightforward, an automatic autoclave requires less work on your end than a manual autoclave would.

Do Your Research

When looking for a brand that suits you, you’ll want to determine which brands match your overall values and interests. If there is a specific brand or company you’re interested in, it’s important that you look up the different models being offered from that company.

Here is a short list of the autoclave companies or manufacturers you can find at AKW Medical:

All of these companies have their own goals along with their unique equipment and product functionality. When looking at Midmark, for example, the company focuses on customer care and you can buy equipment that suits the medical, dental, or animal health field.

Tuttnauer, on the other hand, focuses on equipment that is also beneficial for the environment. This is done by keeping the energy used during manufacturing at a low. Not only this, but the company aims to produce equipment that uses less energy than some of its competition.

You’ll also want to research the different specs of available autoclaves to determine whether they can fit in the space you have available, how long it takes for the equipment to be cleaned, and many other questions you might have.

Final Thoughts

Keep in mind that while reseaerching refurbished or pre-owned autoclaves to buy, it’s important to look at all the different reasons why you may be looking for an autoclave. Looking for a budget-friendly option will send you in one direction while more expensive autoclaves will send you in another.
