Syfte och mål
To develop a preheater for the carbon back industry that preheats to 1000 C. Ekström & Son (Ekström) aims to pursue a major market opportunity by developing and commercializing a radical new Air Preheater (APH) to be used in Carbon Black (CB) production. By combining novel materials with innovative design features, the APH air temperature can be increased to 1000°C, levels not ever seen before. This goal has been achieved.
Resultat och förväntade effekter
A design has been developed and tested, material and suppliers have been singled out for a supply list. The project has resulted in a product/prototype ready for commercial launch.
Upplägg och genomförande
This project was divided into well defined work packages (WP), each one managed by an appointed WP owner in the project organization, which in turn is managed by a Project Manager (PM). Furthermore a CB producer (providing test site), a Material producer (expertise support in material engineering/production) have been included.
