Harper International recently announced it has finalized a contract with the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) for a full pilot-scale carbon fiber process line valued at more than $12 million. The line is a custom-designed conversion process to support ORNL’s low-cost carbon fiber research and technology transfer.

Harper was selected for the contract due to its capability to successfully design, manufacture, install, and commission a fully integrated carbon fiber process line. The custom-designed line incorporates Harper’s proprietary multi-flow oxidation oven technology; advanced LT and HT slot furnaces rated for 1000 and 2000°C, respectively; pre- and post-treatment fiber conditioning; gas treatment and handling; and material transport systems.
