Eurovac Inc. (North York, Ontario, Canada) will highlight its Eurovac II Pneumatic Portable at CMAX 2019.
The portable unit was designed to safely collect a variety of fine powders, explosive dusts and debris. The Eurovac II Pneumatic Portable is powered by compressed air being forced through a venturi to create a powerful vacuum capable of handling two technicians sanding simultaneously. The use of compressed air eliminates the chance of either a dust or gas explosion by removing the element of a sparking motor.
The system is grounded and the vacuum hoses and cuffs are static conductive, meeting NFPA codes. The system is also available with an optional HEPA filtration upgrade.
Boeing and Airbus each is generating as much as a 1 million lb of cured and uncured carbon fiber prepreg waste each year from 787 and A350 XWB production. If you include the entire supply chain for these planes, the total is closer to 4 million lb/year. And with the automotive industry poised to consume (and waste) more carbon fiber than ever, recycling of composite materials has become an absolute necessity. The technology is there, but the markets are not. Yet.
Designers envision aircraft components that do more than bear structural loads, but must first confront great complexities to actualize greater functional efficiency.
Wind energy is putting the uncertainty that was the hallmark of this industry in the rearview mirror. Electricity from this renewable resource is cheaper and more competitive than it's ever been — and getting more so. This massive consumer of composite materials has a bright future.
