Dixons Portable Autoclaves

Dixons Portable Autoclaves

The Dixons range of portable autoclaves has been manufactured for over forty years under various brand names. They have been known over the years as 'Express' autoclaves, 'The Arnolds Autoclave', 'The Portable Autoclave', 'The HM&S Autoclave' and 'The Macarthy Autoclave'. These autoclaves were previously manufactured by Arnold & Sons, Basildon (owned by the McCarthy Group). Dixons have been exclusively manufacturing the range since 1990. They are designed for safety and reliability; yet are simple to use and easy to maintain.

During the past forty years, many thousands have been distributed worldwide, to a wide variety of users. They have become known for both their durability and reliability.


The range comprises of several styles:

  • Gas Heated - Externally heated, require a gas burner or hot plate
  • Thermostatic - Electrically heated, thermostatic control models
  • VARIO Control - Electrically heated, VARIO time and temperature control models

    These are available in several sizes and materials:

    All models require minimal maintenance and have a reputation for giving well beyond 20 years of service. All applicable models now carry the CE mark in compliance with the Electromagnetic Compatibility Regulations 1992 and comply with both BS3456 part 101 1987, for electrical safety, and H&SE PM73, for lid locking devices.
