NC 23B / 23S / 32S Benchtop Steam Sterilizers

All applications covered

NÜVE has enormous experience in the manufacturing of steam sterilizers. This current product range has been carefully designed to cover all applications in general medical practices, dentistry, facilities for personal hygiene, beauty care, veterinary practices and stand-by use in hospitals and clinics. Instruments conform to the requirements of the EN 13060 standard for B and S Class sterilization with additional technical advantages.

Elimination of air bubbles is important and steam should reach all surfaces, so B and S units have a fractionated vacuum operation with a vacuum pump designed especially for use with steam. S models, because of the types of loads that will be sterilized, do not need such a feature and use fractionated gravity with alternating inflow and outflow of steam.

Traceability is comprehensively covered with storage and visualization of all run data using N-Smart™ control system. A large range of safety features and self-diagnostics provide full user protection.
