Real benign stew without autoclave do not like, however, and other canned goods. However, the production of inexpensive home-autoclaves our industry, it seems, a long time will not be adjusted. Imported equipment, most people can not afford. Has to settle for a canned food factory production. But why not make the autoclave with his own hands? As a basis we can take the industrial analogues or the development of Amateur designers (for example, mini-mill V. Starostina, published in the journal “modelist-Konstruktor” No. 4, 1998). You can use my design, which I think is more reliable and productive.
The proposed improvised autoclave is a metal container of adequate strength. In particular, it can be welded from sheet steel with a thickness of 4-5 mm.
In the autoclave of any design can not do without a pressure gauge and fitting for air injection. Better to mount them in the cover by means of threaded connections.
I, for example, as a nozzle used a valve from a camera truck. On cropped the nipple cut a thread M8. In the roof drilled a hole with a diameter of 6.8 mm and also cut in this thread M8. Then I screwed (in the paint) valve in the lid, for reliability and put a lock nut. Similarly secured to the gauge.
As a stand for the thermometer used cut half-inch water pipe. The lower end of its previously brewed. To the temperature measurement was accurate, filled in the front (before you put there thermometer) motor oil — the instrument basked in it. Moreover, to the thermometer rested on the bottom rack, I hung it on a wooden linen clothespin. Well, the cover of autoclave is firmly connected to the housing with six bolts M10.
