Morgan Advanced Materials and Royal Academy of Engineering Chair Professor Ian Kinloch are tackling carbon-carbon composite challenges across a range of industries.
Carbon composites are in high demand across the globe, particularly in the aerospace, automotive, mechanical engineering and rail sectors. However, as many of these materials were developed decades ago, modern analytical and synthetic techniques have the potential to improve these materials, whilst also lowering production costs and producing greener more energy efficient products.
Reliance on wind power is increasing, so the industry must continue to find ways to operate more efficiently, while reducing maintenance and costs. One key to wind energy lies in the turbine’s slip rings, says George Finley, Wind Segment Manager from the Electrical Carbon business of Morgan Advanced Materials.
Wind power in the United States is booming and vast farms of turbines are sprouting across large parts of the country. While this trend isn’t representative of every US state, the country’s use of wind power is on the up and it’s showing no signs of anchoring just yet. Indeed, wind power is on track to overtake hydropower as the U.S. grid’s largest source of renewable electricity in 2019, according to data from the US Energy Information Administration (EIA).
Announced in 2016, the CoE spurred development of 30,000 square foot building at 310 Innovation Boulevard in Innovation Park at Penn State.
Demand for wind power is growing rapidly across the USA. While it offers undoubted benefits, it also carries common technological issues, including the electrical erosion of ground rings in wind turbine generators. Here, George Finley, Wind Segment Manager with the Electrical Carbon business of Morgan Advanced Materials, explores the challenges and costs, and outlines a pioneering solution.
Global leader in materials science Morgan Advanced Materials has opened the doors to its new multi-million-dollar Carbon Science Centre of Excellence (CoE) research and development facility at Penn State University.
As China’s reliance on nuclear energy to sustain its growing population continues to rise, Morgan Advanced Materials has pioneered a unique integrated carbon brush and brush holder which enables greater ease of installation and improved operational safety in nuclear applications.
