Steam Sterilizers

SNA2000 I


Product Description

For more than 50 years, Matachana sterilizers have been designed and manufactured using the most innovative, industry-leading technologies to help you achieve the best results when it comes to operations efficiency, energy savings and reducing water consumption.

Matachana has recently enhanced the design of their SNA2000 I large capacity steam sterilizer, which is built according to Standard ISO 9001’s international quality guidelines.

The Series SNA2000 I bulk steam sterilizer is ideal for research centers, pharmaceuticals, animal facilities, microbiology laboratories, BSL-2 and BSL-3 areas (including sterile material supply industries in general), which need to operate with speed and safety in large-volume sterilization processes.

Matachana sterilizers are extremely user friendly, and are operated via a color touchscreen. Once at the main menu, you are easily guided through sub-menus, so as to perform your required operations in the most efficient way possible.

Control System for Two Independent Readings

Control system through two PLC (control and register) ensures independent readings (temperature/pressure) in which all operations monitoring of the unit is centralized for your convenience.

Main Features and Benefits

  • Chamber and doors made of 316L stainless steel
  • Chamber steam circuits made of 316L stainless steel
  • Electric and automatic operated sliding horizontal door which enabled the user to easily load the sterilizer in either a floor or pit mounted configuration
  • Color touchscreen
  • Program up to 99 cycles
  • Remote alarm
  • Multiple password protection levels available
  • Programmed AutoStart (Start/Stop control)
  • Monitor your cycle directly from the screen which offers a graphical display of the process in real-time
  • Ethernet access port for a PC connection
  • For convenient, simple service, the SNA2000 I's PLC comes ready with the Teleservice option and online remote maintenance
  • Closed-loop Venturi vacuum system runs silently and uses only 10% of other water systems because of this closed-loop feature (versus single-pass)
    - Venturi system comes with a lifetime guarantee, no moving parts
  • Pneumatic valves
  • Alphanumeric digital printer for “on-site” cycle documented records
  • Validation ports for temperature and pressure
  • Test connections for temperature and pressure measuring equipment (validation)
  • Equipped with systems for viewing and printing parameters of process development
  • Tri-clamp connections for the easiest access to service and maintenance
  • Non-proprietary controls and components
  • Standard programs:
    - Vacuum test and B-D test programs
    - Sterilization programs for solid material, with adjustable temperature between 239 and 275 °F (115 and 135 °C), as well a “Fo” value calculation
    - Sterilization programs for liquids in non-hermetically sealed containers, with adjustable temperature between 220 and 275°C (105 and 135°), as well as “Fo” value calculation
    - Gravity program
  • Certifications:
    - ASME
    - ISO 9001: 2008
    - ISO 14001:2004
    - ISO 50001:2011

    - 93/42/EEC Directive


  • Available in a variety of sizes
  • IQ/OQ documentation
  • 211 CFR Part 11
  • Special cycle for reducing the loss of proteins during the sterilization process. This cycle also avoids the solidification of feed and minimizes the levels of humidity inside the bag during the process
  • Air treatment system through a 0.2 μ self sterilizable filter condensate line and condensates treatment inside the chamber, for potentially bio contaminated areas and material (i.e. BSL-2, BSL-3 zones)
  • Halogen gas leak-tight cross contamination seals on double door units
  • Graphic video recorder for pressure and temperatures
  • Connection to external cooling system for additional substantial water savings and reduced cycle time
  • Low temperature programs, with adjustable temperature between 158 and 219°F (70 and 104°C)
  • Liquid Ring Vacuum Pump
  • Special customized options are also available upon request
