The RepairClave from Heatcon Composite Systems gives repair facilities the ability to perform positive pressure repairs without the investment of an autoclave. Designed primarily for repair applications, the RepairClave keeps the system as simple as possible while still meeting required operational parameters. The first experimental unit was sized to accommodate the inboard flaps on the Boeing 737. Sizes of units already produced include a 10-ft x 36-in diameter prototype, a 30-ft x 36-in diameter system installed in South America, a 3-ft x 48-in diameter system used in the research of composite materials, and a 30-ft x 48-in diameter unit.
