See, the T-Edge 11S is a gravity displacement autoclave. Other autoclaves use things like vacuum cycles or dry heat sterilization to sterilize instruments. But gravity displacement works by injecting steam into the unit to weigh down and eventually replace the ambient air in the chamber, without mechanical help.

A unique piece of technological advancement that you won’t find anywhere else except the T-Edge. And even with such an incredible benefit, the T-Edge 11S sports a whole list of other features that keep adding to its already substantial resume.
