Our most valuable piece of machinery is no question our Autoclave. The machine which was purchased in 1992 is, despite its age, still a state of the art machine. While every operation of newer machines is computer controlled this slightly older autoclave still offers all the same features. What makes this Autoclave unique is its length, size and shape. At 110 ft (33m) long it is one of the longest in the United States. The machine has been updated with a Honeywell chart recorder which is capable of logging up to 6 part TC’s, two chamber TC’s and a chamber pressure sensor.
We offer an autoclave rental on a per cook basis and can offer layup, bagging, fabrication and other services upon request. Contact us with your project.
