Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIPping or HIP)
Lake City Heat Treating offers the latest technology in Hot Isostatic Pressing, also known as HIP or HIPping. Our isostatic presses offer both the advantages of high pressure and high speed quench rates approximating that of vacuum cooling systems.
Lake City Heat Treating’s HIP systems feature an advanced uniform rapid cooling capability. This capability dramatically reduces the processing time for each HIP cycle, increasing throughput and lowering costs.
Our Hot Isostatic Presses can reach temperatures of 2,285 degrees F and pressures up to 30,000 PSI. Our load capacity is 18.5″ in diameter and 56″ in length with a maximum weight of 800 pounds. Our rapid cooling rates are 175-200 degrees per minute with a 750-800 pound load.
