Low NOx / low sOot injection system design for sPinning combuStion technology

Project description

High-efficiency injection system propels commercial rollout of spinning combustion technology

Safran Helicopter Engines has patented a new spinning combustion technology that improves air/fuel mixture ignition and enables a weight reduction in the combustor, without compromising its lifetime. Assessing nitrogen oxides (NOx) and soot emissions is a key step before the technology enters the market. The EU-funded LOOPS project plans to design (GDTECH), manufacture, test (INSA Rouen) and model (CERFACS, GDTECH) an advanced low-NOx and low-soot injection system for the spinning combustion technology. Experimental work will be complemented by numerical simulations that will provide, for the first time, a detailed characterisation of soot particle concentration and size distribution.
