Continuing Advances in Vacuum Impregnation Systems

Advances in design have increased productivity, quality, and throughput, and reduces operating costs. Along with improved operator safety, these developments have driven a revival to in-house vacuum impregnation.

The beginning of the 21st century was a turning point for vacuum impregnation safety and production quality, and in less than two decades there have been significant improvements in that technology, a process that had been essentially unchanged since the 1950s.

What is vacuum impregnation? — Vacuum impregnation seals defects that form during the casting or molding of metal parts, defects that include microscopic pores and leak paths in the casting wall. The technique
