The Beacon™ Program

Follow the green path.

Beacon™ Harper’s Beacon™ program is designed to drive greater energy efficiencies and lower operating costs through careful analysis of the Carbon Fiber conversion process. It is the only offering of its kind that is focused on enabling Carbon Fiber manufacturers to position themselves for the exceptional growth that the market is poised to experience in expanded applications such as automotive.

With our extensive experience in furnace technology since the market’s inception, Harper International has developed a model that analyzes various plant configurations and capacities, precursors, integration scenarios and energy recovery options and ranks the environmental impact of the process line. The Beacon model is a complex analysis of more than 100 design parameters. This endeavor establishes a baseline and a facility-specific metric that can be used to develop improvement plans to drive greater energy recovery and lower operating costs.

Carbon Fiber Processing

Harper offers the Beacon program as a tool for Carbon Fiber manufacturers interested in achieving greatest output cost effectively with environmental responsibility. Within the area where we are experts, the Carbon Fiber conversion process, it is our commitment to help drive the industry to meet its full potential.

Learn more about the various elements of the Carbon Fiber conversion process where opportunties for increased energy utilization can be captured, how design parameters have evolved, and how increased efficiency and lower operating costs can be obtained through careful equipment engineering, integration and implementation.
