Group: Combustion Technology

 

Key activities:

 

The group „Combustion Technology“ deals with the characterization of the combustion
behavior and the release of contaminants of:

  • Solid lumpy fuels like biomass, solid recovered
    fuels, waste and fossil fuels in:
      -> Grate technologies / fixed bed KLEAA
      -> Fixed Bed gasifier KLEAA
      -> Small scale oven / stove APELLO 13
  • Liquid fuels in a Rotary kiln
  • Pulverized fuels like biomass, biogenic chars, torrefied biomass, solid recovered fuels and fossil fuels in a pilot power plant BRENDA

 

Further activities are done in the field of mathematical modelling of:

 

 

Services:

 

FuBe® (Fuel Bed)
With FuBe® you get from one source the relevant information about your thermal process, the fuel and its thermal behavior in your plant as well as information about an optimal design and an efficient operation.
FuBe® is built modularly, so a customer‐focused characterization
of the fuel and its behavior in the plant as well as the presentation of the results, which fulfills the customers’ requirements, could be assured.
You would like to get an individual offer of FuBe®?
Please fill in the form or call us under the contacts below! Thank you!

 

 

SoWaCo® (Solid Waste Combustion)
With the numerical tool SoWaCo® it is possible to identify the potentials
for optimization in an existing boiler. For the design of new boilers SoWaCo® can support the dimensioning of the plant, e.g. for different loads or changing fuels.
SoWaCo® is built modularly, so a customer‐focused characterization of the fuel and its behavior in the plant as well as the presentation of the results, which fulfills the customers’ requirements, could be assured.
