Booth C10. Industrial-Scale Ovens and Furnaces By Jeff Sloan, Editor-in-Chief CompositesWorld Epcon Industrial Systems LP (e Woodlands, Texas) is featuring its indus- trial ovens and furnaces for curing, paint finishing, burn-out, heat treating, annealing and aging. Ovens can be gas-fired, oil-fired or electric, as well as conveyorized or batch. Epcon industrial furnaces are designed for powder coating, annealing, pre-bake, pre-heat. Drum furnaces can be gas-fired, oil-fired or electric and configured as car-bottom and box type. Air pollution control systems, for VOCs, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides (NOx) are custom-designed with direct-fired thermal oxidizers (also known as afterburners), regenerative thermal oxidizers (RTOs), recuperative thermal oxidizers and cata- lytic oxidizers for VOC and NOx reduction. Booth Q61. Carbon fiber and prepreg manufacturer Toray (Tacoma, Washington) features at its booth (C22) a section of a carbon fiber helicopter rotor blade manufactured by Van Horn Aviation (Tempe, Arizona) for the Bell 206 JetRanger.
