How insights from advanced oven computation fluid dynamics modeling can guide designs offering improvements to efficiency and safety was among the focuses of a presentation by Harper International’s Dr. Bill Stry. He presented "Novel Oxidation Technology for the Next Generation of Carbon Fiber Manufacturing" at GOCarbonFibre 2015.

Also during the presentation, Stry discussed how utilities for ovens, as the highest energy consumer in the manufacturing process, can be optimized for flexibility and performance, as well as how modular designs can offer improvements to typically long lead time installations.
