Parker Autoclave Business Units
Hydrothermal / Crystal Growth System
|Hydrothermal pressure vessels are used in the process of cultured crystal growth. Crystals, such as quartz, are used in a wide range of high tech electronic and communications products. Parker Autoclave Engineers, a pioneer in high-pressure technology, designed some of the first vessels used to manufacture cultured crystals. Since process requirements are proprietary and unique to most customers, Autoclave will work with you to design a vessel that fits your application.|
Since absolute seals are critical, the Autoclave self-sealing closure pressure vessel, which uses internal pressure to tighten the seal, is the preferred closure. The all-metal seal configuration of the AE closure permits operation at high temperature as well as high pressure, both of which are required for crystal growth. High purity metal liners, which are proven to enhance the quality of the crystals, can be supplied. Controls or other related components are available if needed.
