Patriot Chop/Wet-Out System
Unprecedented precision, power, versatility and rugged construction for long lasting use.
The Patriot Chop/Wetout system delivers unprecedented precision, power, versatility and rugged construction for long lasting use, rapid access design (RAD) for easy maintenance, and reliable performance. The Patriot Chop/Wetout system is designed with highly accurate Patriot technology and modular versatility to make quality parts with minimal overspray and greatly reduce material waste.
With a catalyst-to-resin variance ratio of 1% or less, the Patriot chop system greatly improves upon competitive systems with tested with variance ratios of 25% – 30%. The key to efficient FRP production is achieving a uniform laminate. Precise metering will correct many of the quality issues, such as porosity, inconsistent thickness.
The Patriot Chop/Wetout System features a deep induction heat hardened Fluid Section which is then coated with a thick hard chrome layer to increase the wear characteristics of the system, allowing it to run for longer periods.
Patriot is designed and built with modular components to create the optimum configuration for your needs. Utilizing quick-change components extends the system life and allows for reduced down time. The major components change out in 10 minutes or less. Both the Fluid Section and Catalyst Pump on Patriot feature the new “self-healing” seal that has the lowest coefficients of friction available today. This seal does not require packing adjustments, and greatly reduces the problems associated with heat buildup and wear.
