Core Leaching Autoclaves:

Specifically developed for the removal of ceramic cores within aerofoils and turbines, our core leaching range of autoclaves have be designed and manufactured to give optimum cycle times, whilst at the same time ensuring operator safety.  

 The continuous use of caustic solution in process has led our development engineers to carefully select and fully test every component part fitted. This ensures low maintenance and a long trouble free life. The combination of zonal heating control and specialist insulation materials ensure maximum heating efficiency.
