Indigenous Aerospace grade Autoclave Technology

Indigenous Aerospace grade Autoclave Technology

CSIR- NAL has successfully developed state-of-art Indigenous Autoclave Technology for processing advanced light weight composites that are integral to modern day civil and military airframes.  The size of autoclaves developed range from smaller lab scale to very large sizes up to 5m working dia and 12m working length. The operating temperatures can be as high as 425 Deg C and pressures up to 15 barg.  This will meet   the requirements of    Aerospace Industry, Research and Educational Institutes. The technology has been transferred to two private industries namely M/s. KRR Heavy Engineering Pvt Ltd., Chennai  and M/s. Unique Chemoplat Equipment, Mumbai. In the last 7-8 years several autoclaves have been supplied to various organisations in the strategic sector as well as academic institutions.  About 500 million rupees worth of  business has been generated as on date.  The autoclave technology has been largely successful in promoting the local eco-system, mitigating imports and creating millions of  employment man-hours within the country.
