March, 18-19th 2013, Barcelona – Spain
The 4th Technical Meeting was held in Barcelona, Spain, by Sairem Iberica SL registered offices. Sairem Iberica is a Spanish Company, subsidiary of Sairem SA (France), specialised in design and manufacturing of MW and RF equipment. HELM partners had the chance to visit the company structure and laboratories.
The technical discussion focused on furnace design and simulation activities which are carried out by various partners. The development of all reactors is in progress.
Encouraging results have been shown by Tecnalia in collaboration with BSCCB and Petroceramics. Silicon infiltration tests on MW pyrolyzed performs gave comparable mechanical properties of conventional PIP together with huge reduction of processing cycle time up to 90%.
