VS - Vessel design and construction code

Although many countries accept the ASME Division I, Section VIII pressure vessel standard, there are cases where an alternate pressure vessel code will be required. In these cases, there will be additional costs that are required for authorized inspection services.

PW - Power, voltage, frequency selection

Although the standard Econoclave autoclave is designed for 480 volt / 3phase service and 24 volt control power, we can design it to accommodate any international voltage and frequency requirement.

CL - Cooling system options

The autoclave utilizes water for auxiliary cooling requirements (ie. fan motor capsule) and for main cooling requirements. Some customers prefer to utilize their own water delivery system, however the majority of Econoclave buyers prefer that ASC provide an integrated cooling system for the equipment.

VR - Controlled vacuum receiver system

Many composite applications require full vacuum during and or at the beginning of the cure cycle. In these cases, there is little need to control the level of the vacuum to the parts. However, for high-temperature polyimids and honeycomb reinforced parts, there is often the need to provide partial vacuum (ie. -10"Hg) to the parts. In these cases you will need to have a controlled vacuum receiver.

VT - VacTrap ™ chilled resin traps

For composite curing applications with high volatile content (ie. high-temperature polyimides), we recommend chilled VacTrap ™ assemblies instead of the conventional ambient temperature filter traps. The VacTrap will be much more effective condensing volatiles and solvents during high-temperature curing operations.

PG - Purge system with oxygen monitoring

Most composite autoclaves utilize nitrogen as the pressurization media. After a cure cycle, there is a need to purge the nitrogen from the autoclave and bring in fresh breathable air prior to allowing personnel to enter the autoclave.

RG - Offload and Rigging of the Econoclave at your facility

Many customers prefer to handle rigging with their preferred local contractors, however on turnkey projects and on larger Econoclave deliveries, customers often select the ASC rigging option in order to provide a sole-source responsibility for the effort.

IN - Installation of the Econoclave at your facility

While Econoclaves are easy to install, most customers still prefer that ASC install the autoclave at their facility. There are a couple of installation options that you might want to consider.
