Classic – The ‘Classic’ version is the simplest type of autoclave in Astell’s range. Water is poured directly into the chamber of the autoclave by the user and the colour touch screen advises when the water is at the correct level.
During the cycle at the freesteaming stage, a small amount of condensate is generated which leaves the autoclave by a flexible hose located at the back of the unit. The flexible hose should then be placed into a drain or a heat resistant condensate collection bottle (available separately as an additional option). At the end of each cycle the user is then prompted by the touch screen display to top up the water level to the correct level before starting another cycle.
