PAC 24-60 Series

    Partially Automated Controls (PAC) Impregnation System

    Impco's PAC 24-60 Series Impregnation Systems provide completely automatic impregnating process cycles. Each station is locally controlled and baskets are transferred manually.

    This system features a vacuum-pressure impregnation process which has been proven to deliver superior sealing efficiency. Designed primarily for use with the "Impco Impregnation Process", the system will seal your parts automatically, consistently and economically.

    When sealing parts, the operator places baskets of material to be impregnated in the vacuum/pressure vessel. A touch of the master starting button carries out the complete dry vacuum-pressure impregnating cycle according to easily preprogrammed requirements. The operator is free to perform other tasks until the impregnation cycle is completed. Manual override is immediately available as may be necessary or desirable.

    System dimensions are determined by customer's part size and production requirements. Vessel size determines dimensions of all other components and begins at 24" in diameter increasing to 54" in diameter in 6 inch increments. Baskets are 3 inches smaller in diameter than the vessel. Basket height is sized to meet customer application. Specially designed systems and baskets are available upon request.
