Tuttnauer 2340M Manual Autoclave Specs and Features

Tuttnauer’s 2340M is their manually operated, table top steam sterilizer with a 9 inch diameter chamber.  The newest version of this autoclave has a white front and a blue panel on the right, like in the picture.

The new version of 2340M

Manual sterilizers are run by turning dials on the front of the autoclave.  There is also a 2340MK version, which seems to be discontinued because I’ve only seen old looking ones and the manual on Tuttnauer’s site only shows a 2540MK now.  The “M” stands for manual and the “K” makes it a Kwiklave, so it is faster.

Looking for the service manual?  You can find it here.  This steam sterilizer is designed to supplement a medical facility and is great for surgical clinics, dentists’ offices, tattoo offices, and any other shop that needs to sterilize a large amount of gear.

Similar Autoclaves to the 2340M

  • Midmark M9 automatic: Same chamber size sterilizer from the Midmark corporation, but an automatic (one button push) machine.
  • Tuttnauer 1730 Valueklave: This is a slightly smaller manual sterilizer and a great selling budget machine.
  • Tuttnauer EZ9 and EZ10: These autoclave machines are similar in size to the 2340, but are automatic, computer run.  That means instead of being operated by dials, it is a one button push.  The automated sterilizers are always more expensive because their computer components are always more complicated.
