autoclaves

NEW AND USED AUTOCLAVES FOR SALE
An autoclave is a pressure chamber used in the chemical industry to cure coatings, vulcanize rubber and for hydrothermal synthesis, growing crystals under high temperatures and pressures. Synthetic quartz crystals used in the electronic industry are grown in autoclaves.

An Autoclave must contain dry saturated steam. In order to achieve this, air must be removed from both the load and the chamber. A vacuum is achieved in the chamber before any introduction of steam, removing most of the air before freesteaming and/or vacuum pulsing.
