New heating technology is based on materials that are majorly used in the aerospace industry that commonly helps doctors, forensic scientists, and automobile manufacturers.
Carbon fiber technology from Purdue Research Foundation to support industries ranging from research institutes to commercial manufacturers is licensed by Alconbury Weston limited, a science engineering company located in UK.
Purdue University has developed a C-core carbon fiber technology through a partnership with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
DARPA is an agency of the US Defense Department. The initial technology of DARPA was established at Purdue University by James Zimmerman and Ryan Hilger, scientists at Purdue’s College of Science.
Super semiconductor called C-Core carbon fiber has unique properties to create uniform heat without cols spots.
“It is a completely new use of a widely accepted high-tech material as provides an excellent means of providing heat of flowing fluids. It has been redesigned by the AWL team to facilitate mass production and already adopted for many industry sectors,” said Alastair Barton, director of AWL.
C-Core is based on high-tech material which is commonly used for aerospace applications but AWL is the first company in the history of the science engineering sector to adopt carbon fiber for its unique property of semi-conductor and uniform heating properties.
“C-Core fiber has a special property that makes it ideal for certain technological uses,” Barton said.
C-Core fiber also has the property of flexibility, safety, low-voltage, and high output options.
