A Proposed Entry System for the Conveyance of Uncured SMC into a Pyrolysis System 930190
This paper describes an entry system that could be used to convey uncured sheet molding composite (SMC) into a pyrolysis system. This entry system consists of: a compression chamber, a cutting chamber, and a final temperature control chamber.
This research was accomplished through a joint effort of the Eagle Picher Plastic Division and the Thayer School of Engineering, Dartmouth College on behalf of the SMCAA. Motivation for this research is the total recycling goal of all thermoset composites by the SMCAA.
