In 1950, WSF designed and manufactured its first Rapidoor quick-access closure, and thousands are now in use worldwide. Fabrication is performed to standards of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code where applicable.
WSF defines an autoclave as a pressure vessel with an access door in which any of an infinite number of variable non-ambient conditions such as heat, pressure, temperature, time and moisture can be utilized, individually or in combinations, upon the contents of the vessel. WSF autoclaves are operating worldwide in research and development and testing, process simulation, piloting and prototypes, and commercial production.
Industries using WSF autoclaves include rubber, plastics and many more. Typical applications include vulcanizing rubber products, curing plastics, bonding dissimilar materials into composites, chemical reaction and others. WSF autoclave systems can be large or small, simple or sophisticated. Depending on the industry and application, WSF systems are known as autoclaves, reactors, vulcanizers, sterilizers, heaters, bonders, impregnators, simulators, ovens, etc.
WSF can design and manufacture an autoclave or a complete process system to meet customer specifications and requirements. Autoclave systems can include all necessary valves, gauges, instruments, pumps and controls. The vessel or system can provide for simple, manual operation or highly complex, microprocessor-controlled operation.
