In 2008 furnace spares and maintenance had an enquiry from milled carbon group,
Develop an existing furnace for the use of recycling carbon fibre. This is a new
To achieve what many have tried before, as carbon fibre is a very versatile material.
Formed from new it can not be redeveloped and is useless to any other application
has to be sent to land-fill. Based upon this principle we worked together to develop
furnace and process. However this particular furnace although it had the basics to
prove that this process Worked. it was not possible to achieve any sort of reasonable
production. Having proven This milled carbon entrusted us to design a new Plant and
after various meetings and proposals the initial furnace design was approved and
manufacture commenced in autumn 2008...
The worlds first recycling carbon fibre furnace.
Together as a joint venture both the process and the plant have been patented worldwide.
Spring of 2009 installation and commissioning of
The plant began at recycled carbon fibre ltd
Premises. Part of the milled carbon group.
June 2008 we designed and built an automated fast quench charging machine for one
our existing customers. This machine was installed and commissioned in february
2009 and Produces a fast quench programme. This involves the machine being at station
in front of a high temperature batch furnace (also built by ourselves). Furnace door
is raised and
forks extended, load lifted and forks retract. Once forks back in the home position
machine then starts to Travel down their heat treatment facility while rotating 180
degrees. Reaching quench the machine Slows and stops at station, forks extend lowering
load onto quench table and then retract back to their home position. Ready for load
Recently completed design and build for local hospital incinerator. Completed in
october 2009, this hopper, door and pusher assembly was installed to replace the
existing system. Giving them an easier and more maintainable way of loading the incinerator.
November 2010 we successfully installed a purpose built plant for the heat treatment
of aluminium - high nickel alloys for the petrochemical industry. Consisting of a
furnace with a pivot opening door, quench tank and charge car all of which is fully
automated. Incorporating a tilt mechanism for the roll of tubes into quench. The
quench tank incorporates a turbine driven pump for effective quenching of the tubes.
