Autoclave Types

ASC Process Systems manufactures many types of autoclaves systems for the thermal processing and
bonding industries world wide.

Glass Laminating Autoclave Systems

The ASC's GLS Econoclave is the most advanced glass laminating autoclave solution. The GLS Econoclave glass laminating autoclave system works with and integrates seamlessly with all glass lamination line systems on the market and is capable of curing all types of PVB interlayers, including specialized polymers like SentryGlas®

Superior Glass laminating

ASC's GLS glass laminating autoclaves are designed with unequaled temperature and flow uniformity to ensure 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 glass laminating GLS Econoclave 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 compared to conventional glass-laminating autoclaves. This means more production and less cost per load.

Savings in energy costs = "a green solution"

Operating costs for air compressors and heating can significantly reduce profits for glass laminators. With the Econoclave GLS, we addressed these costs when designing our glass laminating autoclave. The Econoclave has a unique design, allowing for a smaller pressure vessel size than competitors' models with the same production volume capacity. Specifically, our autoclave vessel is up to 20% smaller. This size reduction proportionally decreases the costs for compressors and heating, saving glass laminators up to $100,000 annually in high-production settings.

Recycling through innovation

ASC can also provide our proprietary CRS (Compression Reduction System) system, 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 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) airflow to meet the windshield manufacturer's requirements.

Work carts

ASC's engineering staff can design your autoclave carts to your requirements. Our shop is capable of building carts of any size and configuration.
