The Lab required a new autoclave with enhanced safety and ergonomic features for processing laboratory animal caging systems. A new pit-mounted large steam autoclave was transported, placed, leveled and anchored. In preparation for the new autoclave installation, existing walls were removed and replaced with new to fit the dimensions of the new autoclave. A concrete pit with drain was constructed to accommodate the autoclave, and painted with epoxy. Mechanical ductwork, plumbing piping and electrical conduits and conductors were modified and added for the new sterilizer.
