Components for high performance


Harper Designs Advanced Thermal System to Process Battery Materials for Prayon

The innovative reactor will be used for drying and calcining of Prayon’s advanced iron phosphate powder, a key component of lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) cathode materials used in rechargeable batteries for electric vehicles, and is a part of their recently announced new plant investment to supply the lithium ion battery market. The gas-fired Harper rotary kiln will support high-volume operations with features to maximize Prayon’s production, including advanced tube features to provide enhanced reaction kinetics, gas-tight and dust-tight design, and internal heat recovery within the furnace chamber to improve energy efficiency. Prayon collaborated with Harper through the IgniteTM process during the development phase by supporting scale-up planning and analysis. The IgniteTM program offers scale-up expertise and testing resources to help minimize risk and maximize efficiency for pilot and production level outputs.
