Belgium: Battery Materials for Prayon Harper Designs Advanced Thermal System
Harper International has been awarded a contract for a high volume Rotary furnace system by Prayon, headquartered in Belgium.
Buffalo/USA — The reactor will be used for drying and calcining of Prayon’s advanced iron phosphate powder, a key component of lithium iron phosphate cathode materials used in rechargeable batteries for electric vehicles, and is a part of their recently announced new plant investment to supply the lithium ion battery market.
The gas-fired Harper Rotary kiln will support their high volume operations with features to maximize Prayon’s production, including advanced tube features to provide enhanced reaction kinetics, gas-tight and dust-tight design, and internal heat recovery within the furnace chamber to improve energy efficiency. The companies collaborated through their Ignite process during the development phase by supporting scale up planning and analysis.
