Oxidation is the most critical process step in the production of carbon fiber. It consumes the most energy, has the largest factory footprint, and is the largest capital investment in a carbon fiber line. Any improvement to this step will have a huge impact on the cost and quality of carbon fiber.FEATURES OF THE INTEGRATED CONTROL SYSTEM INCLUDE:
The control system is capable of isolating each equipment subsystem in the line to precisely monitor and control temperature, speed, ramp rates, liquid solution levels, and many more specific performance metrics.
