Efficiency of an autoclaving process depends on the quality of its control system. McGill AirPressure systems are designed for a range of process requirements. They provide precise control of all autoclave functions: heat-up rate, soak period, cool-down rate, pressurization, depressurization, and vacuum
Our control systems integrate a programmable logic controller (PLC), a data acquisition system, graphical user interface software, and a Microsoft® Windows-compatible PC to control and monitor a complete autoclave system. This state-of-the-art integrated control system provides operators with a user-friendly environment, computerized cycle control, and full-function programmable machine control.
Our control system for small bonding autoclaves and most non-bonding applications is microprocessor-based. This system uses ramp/soak proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controllers to regulate temperature, pressure, and vacuum. It includes a digital controller/programmer, chart recorder, high temperature limit controller, and temperature and pressure digital displays including pushbuttons and pilot lights.
