Abstract

Final report of project JOE3-CT95-0019

The goal of this project was to provide and evaluate first prototypes of this compact gas burner and heat exchanger unit concerning the applications in households. . In the course of the experiments different porous media and ceramic insulation materials were tested. The result was an optimised burner Ib, which had very low CO and NOx-emissions. For the final burner design further constructive improvements should be done on the heat exchanger, in order to reduce the pressure drop.

As a result from the present project, a burner prototype was obtained, which is completely novel and provides significant advantages compared to current heating systems. Several manufacturers of heating systems in Europe have already expressed their interest in producing the porous burner unit with integrated heat exchanger.er.
