Harper International recently announced it has booked a contract for a fully integrated pilot scale carbon fiber conversion line. The line will be installed in Europe to produce carbon fiber for use in advanced communication technology.

The fully integrated line incorporates several progressive design features for the production of carbon fiber from 6K PAN precursor and is engineered for higher than traditional processing speeds. Harper will supply its advanced oxidation oven technology; LT and HT slot furnaces rated for 1000°C and 1600°C, respectively; fiber surface treatment and size application conditioning; waste gas abatement; and material transport systems.

“We are pleased to add this project to our list of Harper-designed, technically advanced complete carbon fiber lines,” said Charles Miller, Jr., president. “Our ongoing string of wins demonstrates the superiority of our technology offering and proven track record, and further reinforces our position as the premiere partner to the industry.”
