Bespoke autoclaves solutions for aerospace industry - Aerospace & Air Transport
AeroThermal has extensive expertise in meeting the high-quality standards required by the aerospace industry. With over three decades of practical and technical experience, our team has designed and project-managed autoclave construction for leading global companies, with clients including Boeing, Airbus, BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin, British Airways and the RAF.
More recently we have designed, constructed and installed an 18 foot diameter state-of-the-art autoclave featuring the AeroThermal ‘golden seam’ which is 100% radiographic tested, for UTC Aerospace Systems. The autoclave is so large that it needed to be moved in two parts.
Once it was pressure tested, it was cut into two sections and shipped separately to the site where it was welded together with AeroThermal’s “golden seam”, meaning it was tested with X-rays to prove its integrity.
The company has expertise in specialist thermal processing equipment, custom-designed and manufactured with proven aerospace processing capability. These operate at extremely high tolerances and exacting standards for a variety of applications, and temperatures can reach 400oC.
With several hundred autoclaves and ovens manufactured, installed and operating worldwide, AeroThermal, incorporating Aeroform, has a global reputation for providing its clients with reliable yet innovative industrial processing solutions.
