A number of applications for heavy tows are forecasting to have growth in demand,  including ground and marine transportation, wind energy, and infrastructure. Expanded heavy tow capacity and lowering costs will be critical factors in achieving the more optimistic forecasts. This technical presentation, “Distinguishing Features of a Carbonization Line Designed for Heavy Tows“, presented at GOCarbonFibre 2017, discusses a thermal model of light and heavy tows in an Oxidation Oven, and highlights how the difference between light and heavy tows guides the equipment design and operation.
