Cold Isostatic Pressing (CIP) Systems

Every Quintus CIP features a vessel and yoke frame that are fully pre-stressed and wire-wound with high tensile cold-rolled spring steel wire. The pre-stressing causes the pressure vessel wall to remain in residual compression, even at maximum operating pressure, eliminating tensile loads and preventing crack propagation.

It is widely acknowledged to be the safest, most reliable and durable pressure containment system ever designed. The vessel meets “leak-rather-than-burst” criteria as defined in the ASME code, and typically has a calculated fatigue life of more than 200,000 cycles. Because the load-absorbing wire in the Quintus design have a tensile strength twice that of a forging, the system is lightweight and compact, with a savings in weight up to 50% compared to non wire-wound forged vessels.

Decompression capabilities
The decompression system decompresses the pressure inside the CIP at the end of the hold time. The decompression system can be designed to fit your process needs whether your needs are to get maximum productivity or maximum accuracy and fine decompression.

Modularized solutions
A complete plant based on Quintus Modularized solution is space-saving and cost effective, on a complete plant investment level. This due to the requirement on the building and civil work is uncomplicated with the Modularized solution that facilities all sub-systems into a complete cost effective production entity.

Medium CIP Systems

Research scale CIPs

These compact, self-contained units are fast, convenient, and inexpensive systems for basic research, feasibility, and prototyping

studies of cold isostatic pressing. More Quintus CIPs are used in industrial, government, and university laboratories than any other isostatic press. Many are also used in small-batch production operations.

Pilot plant/mid-range production CIPs

For higher volume production applications, we offer a full line of CIPs with totally automated vessel operation. A touch of a button activates the entry and removal of the cover and basket, threadless pin closure, water filling and draining, and controlled pressurization and depressurization. This design provides the fastest available means for isostatic processing of production components.

CIPs applications that fit your needs

Quintus Technologies has a Cold Isostatic Press (CIP) design to fit virtually any size and pressure requirement you may have. CIP pressure vessel diameters from 51 mm to 3 meters and pressures up to 6,000 bar are available.

We can offer the precise pressure vessel design that will give you the most economical solution to your cold isostatic pressing needs. Vessels are built in accordance with ASME Section VIII, Div. 3, and can be certified in accordance with CE and the PED, the European Pressure Equipment Directive and other international pressure vessel regulations.

Designed to last

Cold isostatic presses are designed for maximized cycle life, optimized selection of subsystem components for maximum throughput, and precise control of pressurization and depressurization for consistency of results. They feature our Quintus wire wound and pre-stressed pressure vessel and frame design that provides maximum safety and weight savings of up to 50% when compared to other pressure vessel designs, simplifying your foundation, building and installation requirements.

We provide easy periodic inspection techniques to keep your CIP in peak operating condition over thousands of cycles.
