Composite Autoclaves

Composite Autoclaves
Melco Steel designs and builds autoclaves suitable for processing high-performance composite components. We construct composite autoclaves in compliance with ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Section VIII, Division 1 standards. Designed to fulfill specific composite curing and bonding requirements, our autoclave systems are available in standard as well as custom models with sizes up to 32' in diameter and 200' in length. Depending on specific application requirements, composite autoclave systems can be fabricated from carbon steel or stainless steel plates with thicknesses up to 8".

 
Vacuum Pressure Impregnation (VPI) Autoclaves

Vacuum Pressure Impregnation (VPI) Autoclaves
At our 25,000 sq. ft. fabrication shop, we perform custom designing, fabricating, testing, and installation of a broad range of vacuum pressure impregnation (VPI) autoclaves. Melco Steel impregnating systems are best suited for wood treating, resin impregnating, as well as other processing applications in industries ranging from carbon and wood product manufacturing to metallurgy. Our VPI autoclaves can be used as cost-effective alternatives for conventional dip and bake methods for processing electrical windings, armatures, castings, or powdered metal products.

 
Glass Laminating Autoclaves

Glass Laminating Autoclaves
Our custom and standard lines of glass laminating autoclaves are used in the production of diverse automotive, architectural, safety, and decorative glass. From small car windshields to large laminated glass, we build autoclaves in lab sizes and large, high production models. Designed to suit your specific load and laminated glass processing requirements, Melco Steel autoclaves are available with auxiliary support equipment such as cooling, pressurization, as well as vacuum systems.

 
Vulcanizers

Vulcanizers
Combining over 3 decades of autoclave manufacturing expertise, Melco Steel designs and builds vulcanizers in a broad range of custom configurations, primarily for the rubber industry. Our standard and custom-built vulcanizers can be used for curing plastic and rubber products. Depending on your specific rubber processing needs, we can build vulcanizing autoclaves in direct steam-injected as well as electric dry-heated models. Our custom dry vulcanizers offer optimal heat and pressure combinations ideal for processing advanced materials, a feature absent in conventional steam heated systems.

 
Sterilizers

Sterilizers
Since 1971, Melco Steel, Inc. has been a leader in the design, engineering, and fabrication of sterilizer systems. We specialize in the manufacture of steel autoclaves, pressure vessels, and other related products in conformance with stringent ASME standards. Our steam sterilizers offer operational flexibility and are integrated with unique safety features that allow us to meet stringent performance requirements. Autoclave sterilizers are available with our proprietary Harris quick-opening doors.

 
Concrete Curing Autoclaves

Concrete Curing Autoclaves
We design and fabricate unique autoclaves for curing concrete masonry to exact customer requirements. Although each concrete curing autoclave is distinctive, we apply proven techniques to address typical issues such as corrosion, thermal expansion, control system temperature feedback, and debris collection in condensate lines. Economical microprocessor based controls, overhead counterweight doors, and proprietary safety door options are some features of our concrete curing autoclaves.

 
Dewaxing Autoclaves

Dewaxing Autoclaves
Design and fabrication of complete dewaxing systems that meet exact end user requirements is our specialty. From simple manually operated autoclaves to completely automated self-contained autoclaves, different types of systems are custom developed by us. Although autoclaves can be built to virtually any size, the common sizes that we produce range from 3' to 6' in diameter and 3' to 8' in length.

 
Harris Quick Opening Doors

Harris Quick Opening Doors
The Harris Quick Opening Door, a proprietary design from Melco Steel, Inc., is commonly used in different types of autoclave systems. Originally developed and patented by Harris Products in the 1950's, its rights were later transferred to Melco Steel, Inc. Over the years, the design of our breech, lock-type doors have been enhanced and refined to offer safe and reliable autoclave operations.

 
Field Services & Engineering

Field Services & Engineering
We offer field engineering services for different types of existing/old autoclaves, be it our own custom types or those manufactured by others. Our field services include, field inspection of safety equipment, quick opening doors, and associated process components. Non-destructive field-testing of pressure vessels and autoclave vessels is also provided. Detailed engineering analysis reports are generated with findings and recommendations.
