Composite Pressure Vessel

The Composite Pressure Vessel (CPV) has been a ground breaking project in that an all composite pressure vessel has been used to service the requirements of the Australian Navy. 

A weight savings of 60% as acheived compared to steel, while meeting stringent tolerances and strength requiremnts. 

In this case neither glass or "normal" carbon fibre would meet the requirements and we therefore employed intermediate modulus carbon with progressiveness ... under vacuum and temprature using one computer controlled oven.
