Burner Technology

Burner Technology

We perform research and development of burners to meet stringent emission limits in various applications from advanced domestic appliances to gas turbines with CCS, using a wide spectrum of experimental and numerical tools, both at lab and pilot scales.

We work within these areas:

  • Low emission (NOx, particles)
  • Combustion systems for thermal heat and power units, including CCS

Typical projects for us are:

  • Improvement of burner - combustion chamber interaction (heat radiation, temperature, NOx, CO, etc.)
  • Selection and design of combustion units for new and retrofit applications
  • Use of waste and byproduct fuels and their effect on burner operation, performance, and emissions

The methods we use are:

  • Experimental facilities from lab to pilot scale combustion units, with advanced measurement capability (flame diagnostic methods, updated gas analyser park, laser diagnostics)
  • High level expertise in both in-house and commercial (Fluent(c)) CFD codes and combustion kinetics
