Glass Laminating Autoclave Systems
Glass-laminating autoclaves are used to bond and cure laminated "safety glass". ASC's Econoclave® GLS is the most advanced glass-laminating autoclave solution available.
ASC's GLS autoclaves are designed with unequaled temperature and flow uniformity to assure even heating and cooling of your glass load. Each autoclave utilizes our proprietary H-Slot ™ flow system to create a uniform flow front from the front to the rear of the autoclave.
Shorter cycle times
The Econoclave® GLS comes standard with an enhanced air circulation system that delivers, on average, 50% more flow to your laminated load than competitive autoclaves. As a result of this increased air-speed through the autoclave working envelope, your glass-laminating load will realize nearly a 50% decrease in cycle time when compared with conventional glass-laminating autoclaves. This means more production and less cost per load.
Savings in energy costs = "a green solution"
Autoclave air-compressor and heating operating costs can be a significant drain on the profit realized by glass-laminators. We took that into account when designing the Econoclave ® GLS. The unique Econoclave® design means that for the same production volume capacity, our autoclave pressure vessel size will be up to 20% less than competitive glass-laminating autoclaves. This reduction in overall autoclave size proportionally reduces compressor and heating costs which can save as much as $100,000 per year in a high-production environment.
Recycling through innovation
ASC can also provide our proprietary CRS (Compression Reduction System) system, which is designed to reuse and recycle the autoclave's compressed air environment, realizing a compression savings of 30% and tens of thousands of dollars per year in operating costs.
Interior flow configurations
ASC can deliver an Econoclave® GLS system that meets your exact production configuration requirements. We can design a unit with longitudinal air-flow using side ducts, top ducts, or floor ducts. We can also provide an autoclave with vertical (bottom to top or top to bottom) air-flow to meet the windshield manufacturer's requirements.
ASC's engineering staff can design your autoclave carts to your exact requirement. Our shop is capable of building any size cart.
