The gas-fired Harper Rotary Kiln will support Prayon's high volume operations with features to maximize 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 has collaborated with Harper through their Ignite process during the development phase by supporting scale up planning and analysis. The Ignite program offers scale-up expertise and testing resources to help minimize risk and maximize efficiency for pilot and production level outputs.
“Harper is focused on supporting the next generation of materials in advanced markets, and this project for the lithium iron phosphate market is a great representation of that”, commented Brian Fuller, Sales Manager for Harper International. “The material is ideal for many of today’s most progressive technologies for electric power and storage battery systems.”
- Prayon (www.prayon.com) is a fully integrated global phosphate producer headquartered in Belgium, with manufacturing operations in Belgium, France and the United States. Jointly owned by OCP (Morocco) and SRIW (Belgium), Prayon manufactures and markets an extensive range of purified phosphoric acids, phosphate salts and fluorine products that are used in food, fertilisers and a range of industrial applications. Prayon also manufactures lithium iron phosphate, a cathode material used in hybrid and electric vehicle batteries as well as stationary applications.
