At Bondtech, we are proud to manufacture, refurbish, and install autoclaves for a wide variety of different industries and applications. These devices are most strongly associated with hospitals and medical research. The intense heat and pressure capabilities of autoclaves are frequently useful to the medical industry, where the high temperature environment is ideal for sterilizing equipment or neutralizing toxic or contagious elements in biohazardous waste.
Beyond the medical sector, autoclaves can actually be found in any number of different industries, ranging from beauty products to aerospace. For example, industrial autoclaves are used to laminate glass. The high pressure created by autoclaves is ideal for creating of laminated safety glass—a type of glass that designed to prevent dangerous shattering in the event of breakage. This type of glass is often used in the automotive industry but can also be found in many buildings.
