We at Neelkanth Retort (Autoclave) believe that being conscious of the environment, worker productivity and safety needs to be at core of every business which can ultimately drive sustainable economic growth. Some of the other preservation technologies available in the market include full water immersion and hot water sprays, which drain resources tremendously and consume more than required quantities of steam and water. These processes are not sustainable and are not environment-friendly.

Hence we at Neelkanth Retorts strive to produce the most environmentally sustainable Steam and Air retorts (autoclaves) which are truly green. We also provide you with assistance on drafting your own sterilization process cycle, tailored to your product needs and requirement.

Becoming a part of the Neelkanth Steam & Air retort family gives you the following benefits:


  • No wastage – Steam consumption is adequately optimized due to direct steam injection.
  • Minimum resources – You don’t require any extra fluid to heat before heating the products
  • Time-saving – The come-up time to reach your required temperature is quick


NEELKANTH STEAM & AIR RETORT SYSTEM IS THE ONLY PROCESS CAPABLE OF DEALING WITH ALL TYPE OF PACKAGING. The mixture of steam and air is mixed in a uniform way so as to ensure complete sterilization and circulation with the fan. Our Technology ensure mild cooling system to avoid thermal shock.


Accurate temperature can be achieved with independent pressure and packaging shape (controlled forced ventilation)

  • Absence of umbrella effect (in comparison to water spray systems)
  • Absence of thermal shock (due to Neelkanth mild cooling system: accuracy up to 0,2°C.)
  • No obstruction to the spray nozzles during heating, and/or sterilisation holding time.

Have a look at the data highlighting the benefits of the Neelkanth Steam & Air process over other Water based processes:

  • Steam process consumes 30% to 50 % less energy as compared to any other water spray process
  • Cooling water requirement reduced by 30%
  • Process time reduced up to 20%
  • saving of up to 50% on utilities
