HIP Features

Safety
Every QUINTUS® HIP features a vessel and yoke frame that are fully pre-stressed and wire-wound with high tensile cold-rolled spring steel ribbon. 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 and brittle failure.

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 20,000 cycles. Because the load-absorbing wire ribbons 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.

Productivity
Quintus Technologies’ URC® and URQ® quench furnaces can provide decreased cycle time, higher productivity, and even combined HIP and heat treating. They can easily cool the full workload in a medium-sized HIP from 1,260 to 300°C in less than 30 minutes.

In an equivalent HIP system, natural cooling can take from 8 to 12 hours, well over half the typical cycle duration. Our URC design cools all areas of the workload uniformly, minimizing thermal distortion and non-uniform grain growth.

Modularized solutions
A Quintus Modularized solution is space-saving and cost effective on a complete plant investment level. Building and civil work are simplified with the Modularized solution that facilitates all sub-systems into a complete cost effective production entity.

Turn key deliveries
Quintus Technologies has installed a  large number of Hot Isostatic Presses world-wide. Our project management method is well proven, giving the customer a single point of contact until the equipment is ready for operation take over and the start of production.

Small HIP Systems

Laboratory HIP systems
These compact Small HIP systems are designed for HIP research and feasibility studies. The pressure vessel, frame, and all other subsystems are housed in a single, space-saving cabinet. Work zone diameters range from 82 to 186 mm, with heights from 160 to 500 mm.

Small production HIP systems
Our Small HIP systems are smaller versions of our production presses. The pressure vessel, frame and all other subsystems are mounted on a space-saving skid with standard vessel diameters of 228 to 375 mm and heights of 700 to 1200 mm. These presses are economically suited for production of smaller parts from the MIM, AM and investment casting industry. The systems are highly productive and can run up to 6 cycles a day depending on the application.

Medium HIP Systems

Medium HIP systems
Quintus Medium sized HIP systems have standard vessel diameters ranging from 450mm to 1050mm and heights of 1100 to 2600 mm. These presses are full production systems which are suited for all markets from AM and MIM to full scale tolling business.

Large HIP Systems

High volume production systems
Quintus Technologies offers large-capacity HIP presses that dramatically reduce per-unit processing costs, and is leading the development of “Mega-HIPs” for even greater cost efficiency. The world’s largest press has a hot zone diameter of more than 2 m (79”), and our new “Tera-HIPs” have vessel diameters up to 3 m (118”).

These giant capacities allow densification of ever-larger products and batches, cutting costs and helping customers to grow their competitive advantage.
