EKATO offers a robust mechanical design and high quality manufacturing (titanium clean room for welding). Through our seal division we offer a complete range of mechanical sealing solutions and seal support systems for autoclave trains. Autoclave technology is used in hydrometallurgy when extraction by classical atmospheric leaching methods is not economical.

Autoclaves are typically horizontal vessels divided into 3 to 9 compartments or a series of single cascading vessels working at high temperature and high pressure. Extreme temperatures as well as fluctuating pressure regimes require sound designs and best quality products, ensuring maximum availability and lifetime.
