Research at the atmospheric Research Entrained flow Gasifier REGA focusses on the gasification behavior of biogenic and fossil liquid and suspension fuels. The axially movable burner enables radial profile measurements of temperature, gas phase composition, gas velocities and drop size distributions at variable burner distance. Different reaction zones in the flame zone are localized applying Laser-induced fluorescence. The experimental data serve as basis for modelling the thermo-chemical processes under entrained flow conditions and for validation of numerical models simulating the gasification process.
