AUTOCLAVES

Cortest autoclave systems are used for high pressure and high temperature (HPHT) test applications including: corrosion testing, electrochemical studies, corrosion inhibitor analysis, shear stress analysis, slow strain rate testing, and more. When paired with one of our Magnetic Stirrers or Circulating Flow Loop Systems, our Autoclaves may be used for dynamic testing applications.

Cortest has been building safe and reliable autoclave systems for over 40 years and offers standard system designs as well as custom configurations to meet the most demanding of applications. Each pressure vessel is designed in accordance to the ASME Section VIII Div. 1 standard. PED, CSA, CE, DOSH, and the China Special Equipment Manufacture License certificates are available upon request.
