Custom Steel Autoclaves

Custom autoclaves are used for chemical reactions, contents under pressure, and/or high temperatures.

We fabricate custom autoclaves from carbon steel or stainless steel. The features of autoclaves are safety, durability, compliance, quality design, and fabrication.

How Industrial Autoclaves Work

Industrial autoclaves facilitate high temperatures and pressures for various processes in many industries. The internal chambers are designed to be cylindrical in shape and are more stable in a high pressure environment. Autoclaves can be used to sterilize infectious waste but can also cure and strengthen composite parts that can withstand harsh environments and/or heavy use. Autoclaves use either steam or electric heat depending on the specific machine and application.

Autoclaves can be heated with:

Wet Steam

Dry Steam

Electric Heat

We create wet steam by using a boiler, while dry steam is generated with the use of a heat exchanger. Some autoclaves rely on electric heat rather than steam heat, and in these cases, the autoclave is heated using electric coils.

Autoclave designs are custom fabricated for a variety of industries.

Autoclaves are fabricated in sections or in whole at our manufacturing facility. Our inspectors then assure that they’re in compliance with all ASME specifications before they’re transported for assembly or installation.
