As we begin a New Year, we want to share our top 3 most read blog posts of 2014. If you missed any of these articles, be sure to check them out. They include helpful information about continuous flow vacuum impregnation, the quality of an impregnation process and sealants.
What is Continuous Flow Vacuum Impregnation?
Continuous flow is the most recent technology in vacuum impregnation. Continuous flow vacuum impregnation systems are cellular or lean in design, focused on conserving valuable resources including labor, power and floor space while being more ergonomic than batch systems.
Confirming the Quality of an Impregnation Process
People often think that there is nothing special required or knowledge needed to perform impregnation services. However, like everything else in manufacturing, having knowledge and the right tools are a must in running a high quality impregnation process. If you do not pay attention to the quality, your process will fail.
What Does it Mean when a Sealant is Qualified and Approved by MIL-I-17563C?
It’s important to first understand the 3 classifications within MIL-I-17563C. In general, all organic based sealants are qualified to Class 1 and 3. Class 2 was designed specifically for sodium silicate which is in very limited use today, and Class 1a qualifies the sealant to be compatible with TNT (Trinitrotoluene) and Composition B explosives.
