Energy Innovation 2018: New Frontiers

  • Print

CBOne is present at the Symposium EnInnov 2018 on Energy Innovation at TU Graz, from the 14th to the 16th of February.

Blueprint of the pressurised combustor used in emootionBlueprint of the pressurised combustor used in the emootion project.

This year, two articles are presented:

  • The first one is the project emootion, about the combined optic-acoustic precision monitoring of a flame in continuous flow machines. We show how this miniature monitoring system, developed at first for gas turbines can be used for atmospheric burners and heavy-use applications.
  • The second topic is the project rePorT, about advanced burner design with integrated instrumentation. Instead of starting from an existing design - or conventional design - we show how a novel swirler shape was designed using additive manufacturing, and how this shape presents a lower pressure than a conventional swirler. This approach can result in significant gains in terms of weight and congestion. Combined to additional features such as the instrumentation, it simply leads towards better burners.

CBOne and its contributions since 2012 about Energy Innovation:

Energy Innovation, and particularly innovation in combustion are at the heart of the R&D department of Combustion Bay One. By pushing forward the limits on flame stability, precision flame monitoring and ad-hoc burner shapes we can update constantly our know-how on combustion engineering, and offer services of engineering of  premium quality.

Combustion Bay One e.U. is now well visible in the combustion community. CBOne sums-up the know-how on adavanced combustion management based on the progress gathered through the years. The regular publication rate and the elevated impact factor of our dissemination attests the quality of our works. CBOne is in Austria one of the most active private companies in terms of research and development in combustion. Our partnerships allow us to make ambitious project, with a high degree of sophistication, and accurate results.

Towards less fuel consumption, less pollutants for more flexibility and more safety in your thermal facility. This is what we do, and this is what we share, openly. Because at the end of the day it is about the management of what is left in terms of fossil fuels, and it has a lot to do with the air we breathe.

This is Combustion Bay One. The publications listed previously are available on demand. Do not hesitate to contact us!
