2. Package Types:

Metal Can: Tin Can, Aluminium Can, Stainless Steel Can etc.
Plastic Bottle: PP, PE or HDPE Bottle etc.
Inflatable & Gas-flush Bag etc.
Glass Bottle, Glass Jar etc.
Aluminum Foil Package etc.
Various High Temperature Resistant Packages.
3. Size or Dimensions of all your packages
Based on the accurate dimensions of packages, our Technical Team will calculate the accurate quantity loaded in the retort/autoclave.
4. Approx. Net Weight of each package.
It’s used to calculate the actual “Batch Quantity”(also called “Load Capacity”).
For example, if you want to sterilize 500kg/cycle(one autoclave/retort), and the Net Weight of each package is
500g, so our engineers will design the suitable retort/autoclave which can load at least 1,000 packages, to satisfy
your actual requirement of 500kg/cycle.
5. Heating Source Supply:
Saturated Steam offered by the Matched Boiler;
Electricity Power without Boiler
6. Structure Choose:
A: Single Autoclave/retort, without Hot Water Storage Tank
(Your side should prepare a Water Tank by yourself, to match the Sterilization Water Consumption of your
Autoclave/retort, and it will lower your Purchasing Budget, but you will have to heat the sterilization water again
before the next sterilization processing cycle)
B: Double Layers Autoclave/retort, with an upper Hot Water Storage Tank
(More convenient & faster to operate the next sterilization Processing Cycle with the Hot Water from last cycle, no
need to heat the sterilization water again, and Saving the average Produce Cost a lot)
Based on all the above necessary information, our side will work out the most accurate solution and offer the most suitable Autoclave/retort to you
