The Hirayama HVE-50 autoclave sterilizer is a self-contained, portable, top-loading autoclaves with auto exhaust and warming cycles.

The top loading feature with the lid opening upward is not only a great space-saving design benefit, it also means that this sterilizer is also desirable and particularly suited for the sterilizations of large fermenter vessels so is the perfect companion for fermenters like the Winpact fermenter

Hirayama HVE-50 autoclave sterilizer has a convenient agar sterilization mode for sterilizing agar and then automatically maintaining it at liquid temperature. A dual-sensing lid interlock shut and prevents lid opening when chamber is pressurized or when temperature exceeds 97°C.

The HVE-50 autoclave from Hirayama also features an agar melting mode for melting agar and maintaining it at liquid temperature. This also is convenient for hot, faster start-up.

The autoclave has a convenient one-touch lever to easily open and close chamber lid. An in-process display shows the status and the progress of sterilization cycle. Door-closure sensor provides a prompt and the cycle will not start unless the door is closed properly.
