Superior Graphite Opens Renovated R&D Laboratory in Bedford Park, Illinois
In operation since 1917, Superior Graphite provides continuous electro-thermal treatment/purification of graphite & carbons, advanced sizing, and custom-mix technologies for energy/thermal management, metallurgy, friction, drilling material additives, non-oxide ceramics, and polymers/CASE materials.
The facility includes offices overlooking the lab areas for easy access and monitoring, work benches for dedicated scientists, as well as supplies and equipment that will assist in developing premium products for customers.
President & CEO Edward Carney said, "The enhanced capabilities and work flow of the new laboratory not only fulfill the vision of our strategic plan but are also synchronized with the added requirements expected by our customers.”
“In addition, the layout also provides for added collaboration and research possibilities, which is envisioned will lead to new product development." Project Leader, Carsten Wehling said.
“Within 14 months from the Board’s decision to create the lab, it was completed. There was a great effort and cooperation between our engineering and R&D teams. The new lab will allow for enhanced product development and will also provide the infrastructure necessary to conduct advanced analytical work that will support our cutting edge, high purity graphite production,” Wehling added.
