Quadro – Benchtop Autoclave
Short process time, high capacity
Quadro was developed with productivity as the guiding star. The core is the unique, well-proven steam generator that has been the powerful energy source in almost all sterilizers from Skärhamn. This in combination with the deep-drawn super-ellipse-shaped chamber creates a sterilizer with an extra ordinary capacity.
Super loading capacity thanks to the super ellipse shaped chamber – 5 dental cassettes or 9 trays. Extremely fast B-process. <30 minutes in total time.

Highest loading capacity
The quadric chamber shape provides an almost 100% usable volume to be compared to round chambers, where there is an approximate non-usable volume of 25% if using standard trays.
With its clean, smooth covers and the big, open water reservoirs providing 100% accessibility for cleaning to prevent biofilm, it is simple to maintain a high level of hygiene. To use Quadro is even simpler – just fill or drain water when Quadro asks for it. Or you install it to the mains water supply through a filter and drain and Quadro takes care of it by itself.
Integrated process release and documentation
To secure patient safety in today’s modern dental- and hospital clinic, there are high demands when it comes to documentation and traceability of the hygiene process. Quadro provides an excellent support through an integrated documentation and release system. You decide how you manage the documentation in your clinic. From a standard printer or storage of processes on a USB-memory stick, to a local network connection with process release directly on the big touch panel.
Environmental concerns and thinking in design
Thanks to its small outer dimensions and low weight Quadro is easy to install in limited spaces. But it is not only the space Quadro saves; lower weight and smaller dimensions means less pollution in transport.
Details that make the difference
What is it that makes Quadro so special? Quite often it is in the detail when it comes to unique features. Quadro is filled with technical innovations that together form a well-functioning unit. Here is a selection:
The Quadro steam generator is unique in its construction since it stores and provides much more energy compared to what you momentarily get out from the power plug. This allows energy to be released in an instant and convert water into energy-rich saturated steam ideal for sterilization. All this on an ordinary 10 ampere fused power supply. The elements are never in contact with the water which provides a long lifetime. We believe so much in this that we give 10 years warranty on the elements.
Super ellipse chamber
The super-ellipse-shaped chamber is precision made in one piece of stainless-steel sheet that is deep drawn with a force of 3000 tones and produced without any welding. The design results in a sterilizer chamber with super finish.
Safety chamber door
When the door is closed it is locked with two locking pins, which gives a robust and user-safe construction. Compare this to other sterilizers where the door is locked with just one locking screw.
