The new Computreater CF from C. A. Litzler Co. Inc. (Cleveland, Ohio) is the laboratory model of the company’s advanced high-production carbon fiber system. Designed to accommodate a single tow (1K to 50K in size), the lab system can be used by universities, research institutes, producers of polyacrylonitrile (PAN) precursor and carbon fiber manufacturers to develop new carbon fiber precursors and fibers. Moreover, the system also can be used by existing carbon fiber producers to test and evaluate the quality of incoming PAN precursor. Functions and features of the system include a PAN creel with tension control, pretreatment capability, three 330°C/626°F oxidation ovens with conveyor rollers, tension/draw controls in multiple zones, low-temperature/high-temperature furnaces, a sizing system, surface treatment, a winder and integrated controls for operation and analysis.
