Praxair Autoclaves for Sterilization, Coatings & Vulcanization for Aerospace & Aircraft
Lightweight material. Heavyweight strength.
Industrial autoclaves are pressure vessels used to process parts and materials that require exposure to elevated pressure and temperatures. The manufacturing of high-performance components from advanced composites often requires autoclave processing.
High-temperature autoclaves are used to cure laminar composites for aerospace applications, but carbon-based laminar composites produce an off-gas during the curing process. Nitrogen provides a safe, inert atmosphere that will sweep the off-gases from the furnace. Our carefully designed nitrogen supply systems provide high flow and pressure to the autoclave, resulting in a better-made product for your aircraft.
Autoclave inerting is a key process used to meet the demands of modern aerospace and aircraft design. Autoclave inerting allows you to create high-performance parts that are lightweight but incredibly strong — perfect for the extreme conditions your aircraft might face. We design and install custom systems to provide the high pressure, high flow rates required for autoclave inerting. The result is a safer, lighter and stronger aircraft built to exceed the expectations of the 21st century.
Optimize Your Autoclave Operations
Praxair can provide the gases, supply systems, and technical support required to efficiently operate your autoclave process. Allow us to conduct an evaluation using our Autoclave Process Review. This evaluation reviews existing or future gas usage, temperature, and pressure, to help provide optimal results.
