Learn how depending on the type of resin used, you may have to apply heat and pressure to get things to set.
- An autoclave system allows a complex chemical reaction…to occur inside a pressure vessel according to a…specified time, temperature, and pressure profile…in order to process a variety of materials.…Autoclaves that are operated at lower temperatures…and pressures can be pressurized by your air around you,…but if you're going into high temperatures…and high pressures, it's going to require that you…have a cure cycle that is possibly…a 50/50 mixture of air and nitrogen…or even 100% nitrogen,…again, depending upon the resin,…the temperature, and your cure cycle.…
The major elements of an autoclave system are…vessel to contain the pressure,…sources to heat the gas stream,…and circulate it uniformly within the vessel,…a sub-system to apply vacuum to parts…covered in a vacuum bag,…a sub-system to control operating parameters…and an additional sub-system to load the molds…into the autoclave.…So basically, you have to be able to…get the mold in and out,…you have to control the temperature,…you have to control the pressure.…
