A new sterilizer from WLD-TEC may assist baking facilities with high-speed annealing and sterilization without the need for a gas flame.

The SteriMax Smart from WLD-TEC is designed for laboratories, anaerobic environments and safety cabinets.

This innovative sterilizer uses specifically focused infrared light, which generates an infrared hotspot for sterilizing inoculating loops at a temperature of 750 to 1,000 C in only five to 10 seconds immediately and without any preheating, WLD-TEC said in a press release.

Its features include auto-start through touchless IR-Sensor technology; adjustable sterilization and cool-down timers for two users by front-panel operation; and an annealing tube made of special quartz glass.


The device and annealing tube are designed for easy cleaning. Thermo Control helps promote efficient use of energy and minimal heat dissipation thanks to Cool-Touch housing made of stainless steel and safety glass.
