HMC Steam sterilizers HV Series

The tireless for standard tasks - ingeniously simple and robust


The simpler the design, the safer the lock! The lock can be opened and closed with one finger. Radially locking bolts are moved without applying any force.The passive chamber seal operates with virtually no wear.

The lid gasket is not subjected to any mechanical friction and can easily be replaced if required. The weight of the lid is completely balanced by a torsion spring. Effortless opening and closing. Any condensate which drips off the lid is  collected and fed into the spent-steam condenser. The device and floor are kept dry.


hv05Programs at the push of a button
The most important programs are pre-installed and can be opened at the push of a button:

  • Sterilization of solids: With fast release of steam
  • Sterilization of liquids: With variable natural cooling
  • Sterilization of liquids: With rapid cooling for thermolabile materials
  • Sterilization of liquids: With subsequent reheat cycle
  • AGAR program: Prepares AGAR and keeps it ready for processing (thermostatic heating)
  • Night program: Timer-controlled, load in the evening - sterile and ready for removal in the morning down to the minute, even over the weekend!
  • Waste sterilization: Mixed load with a low liquid content
  • Automatic standby operation to save energy


hv04Dual sensor system
Precise temperature control with additional pressure monitoring. This allows for controlled excess pressure during the heating phase, which reduces the batch time Bright display with program and progress indicators.

Thermolock with sterilization time control

The German ordinance on pressure vessels TRB 402 and DIN EN 61010-2 prescribe a thermolock for the sterilization of liquids. This thermolock prevents injuries do the operating personnel due to  boiling delay. This hazard should be controlled directly in the substance at risk for boiling delay. The lid can only be opened once the media temperature has also dropped below the reference value  after pressure equalization. All parameters can be set individually before starting the program, and cannot be modified after program start for safety reasons. Reliable sterilization is ensured in this  manner.


  • Electrical, with maximum efficiency, directly in the feed water
  • 3-level protection against overheating


Exhaust air filter
Safety for individuals and the environment. Option for safe, emission-free sterilization of highly infectious germs and genetically modified materials. During the venting phase, the steam displaces unsterilized residual air from the chamber and passes it through a filter system. The surrounding air is protected against contamination as the cycle is running. Naturally, in-line sterilization of the  exhaust air filter is performed. Due to the design, condensate sterilization is a matter of course. Any condensate which precipitates flows back into the chamber and gets sterilized. Discharge can  be done safely.
