Imprex has been designing and fabricating custom Vacuum Pressure Impregnation equipment for installation since 1958. Made in the USA, we build VPI systems in our ASME certified Fabrication Shop, and ship them for installation all over the world.
VPI Spare Parts
The Spare Parts Department offers a comprehensive range of quality spare parts to keep your VPI equipment operating efficiently. To that end, our spare parts and equipment meet all specifications and certification requirements.
Vacuum Impregnation Services
Our Job Shop offers quick turnaround for porosity sealing in metal castings, powdered and sintered metal parts, and electronic components. High-quality impregnation is the solution to eliminate porosity, and turn leakers into usable parts.
What Can Be Sealed?
Any metal castings that need to undergo drastic temperature changes, moisture, vibration, or hydrostatic, hydraulic, or pneumatic pressure can be impregnated. Vacuum impregnation can seal porosity in automotive parts, motors, generators, coil windings, transformers, pumps, electronic equipment, and more.
What Causes Metal Casting Defects?
If small gas bubbles are trapped while a metal casting is still liquid, voids can form when the metal cools. These voids in the metal are called porosity, and cause leakage when the casting is pressure-tested. Imprex impregnation seals porosity and makes parts pressure-tight.
