Carbon Fiber Process Monitoring

PAN Carbon Fiber processes are benefiting from TAS technology innovations.

Laser systems have been promoted for this industry for several years targeting health, safety, and environment applications (HSE). TAS supports process safety applications that can help contribute to production bottom line.

TAS has been developing and promoting a paradigm shift in HCN monitoring for PAN processes. The fast and reliable laser technology is being fielded for process monitoring. Initial applications are for early detection of runaway exotherms that can be expensive and even catastrophic in PAN ovens. Application of multi-path and multi-gas detection makes the insurance and technology support for process safety and operations continuity an attractive possibility. Adding the reality of simultaneous trace ammonia and water monitoring, and process safety and productivity can be significantly enhanced.
