The heatpipe reformer design

The design of Prototype a heat pipe reformer has been developed to an extent that the manufacturing drawings could be derived directly by the manufacturer LFT. The objective of Prototype A was to validate the heat pipe reformer concept as such. The highly integrated version of the reformer with char filter included in the reformer has been developed as Prototype B mostly by LTK.

As one of the leading developers of steam gasification processes for biomass and fossil fuels, we could contribute to the project with a wealth deal of experience with respect to process technology, pressurised reactors, materials suitable for high temperature environments with reducing atmosphere. Particular challenges were in the design of the passage of the heat pipes through the separating plate between atmospheric combustor and pressurised gasifier including the insulation of the separating plate against heat loss and the design of a steam cap system to allow the heat pipes to ventilate hydrogen that has come inside through diffusion.

The profit for DMT is in keeping track of the development of biomass gasification on a basic scientific level and particularly the participation in the development of a biomass gasification technology with prospect of widespread decentralised application.
By the end of June 2004, in the context of restructuring and getting closer to its roots of technical services in the field of coal mining, DMT has given up biomass-to-energy activities completely. The persons charged with biomass gasification inside DMT, belong to a small management buy-out company now.
