  • The Goldilocks of Combustion Solutions

    It’s not too big, it’s not too small… It’s just right! We hear it all the time from our customers: “The ABUTEC 200 is too small for our site, but the HTF is too large. Can you create a custom unit?” The answer sometimes surprises those customers. While yes, we can certainly develop a custom unit just for your site, a more efficient (and cost-effective) ...


  • Paint booths, or areas using combustible gases: why a requirement for combustible gas monitor might be necessary

    Paint booths save time and ensure a smooth and professional application of paint in a range of industries, including automotive, aerospace, home decor, furniture, and more. Combustible gases and fluids in the paint booth environment can pose a health hazard if something goes wrong. Explore the hidden dangers of paint booth fluids and gases, and learn how a ...

  • HClear™ Programs: A Solution-­Based Approach to HCl Abatement

    Fuel Tech recently developed HClear™, an HCl abatement program that relies on the injection of an aqueous solution into combustion gas stream to react with gaseous HCl. This technology involves an aqueous solution that is injected into the flue gas, downstream of the economizer outlet. Upon injection of the aqueous solution into the flue gas stream, a molecular precursor contained within ...

  • The bioethanol blending with gasoline promotes its full combustion

    There are actively proceeding world discussions about oil and alternative energy sources. First of all should be mentioned bioethanol, as the most capacious product. Today oil and gas are the main power sources in the world and therefore reduction of their use is the main priority in work of many countries governments. These days many farmers invest in construction of the enterprises for ...

  • CFD modelling of sampling locations for early detection of spontaneous combustion in long–wall gob areas

    In this study, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling was conducted to optimise gas sampling locations for the early detection of spontaneous heating in longwall gob areas. Initial simulations were carried out to predict carbon monoxide (CO) concentrations at various regulators in the gob using a bleeder ventilation system. Measured CO concentration values at these regulators were then used ...

  • Effect of hydrogen supplementation on the performance, combustion and emission characteristics of a natural gas fuelled S.I. engine

    This article represents the results of a single cylinder engine using specially designed electronically actuated fuel injection system fuelled with neat CNG, and mixtures of hydrogen in natural gas (HCNG) of 5, 10, 15 and 20% by energy. Experiments were conducted with wide open throttle and varying the equivalence ratio. Hydrogen which has fast burning rate, when added to compressed natural gas ...

  • Detecting Hydrogen Gas and Fires: Seeing the Unseen

    Hydrogen usage is growing. The general public sees and reads about hydrogen as an alternative fuel for cars. However, the big use for hydrogen is found in hydrocarbon processing and other important manufacturing processes. Hydrogen is the first element on the periodic table and is an essential element in the manufacturing of many of our everyday products. We must have respect for its explosive ...

  • Redundant combustion plant for Novartis

    Type     HOFGAS®- IFM4c/2200/1500/60/180 Commissioning     2004 Site     Novartis (Basel, CH) Situation In order to prevent production failure due to missing redundancy in the flue gas clean up, Novartis required an additional system. During different production processes exhaust air load with organic components is formed. ...

  • Modelling and simulation with experimental verification of hydrogen-diesel dual-fuel premixed combustion and emission analysis

    This paper deals with an application of advanced simulation methods to the modelling of Duel-Fuelled engines (Hydrogen/Diesel) in which the premixed Hydrogen gas is ignited by the combustion flame initiated by a diesel spray. The model consists of a diesel auto-ignition model and a modified combustion model. The influence of main engine parameters i.e., injection advance, and various percentages ...

  • Problems of catalytic boiler safety and their role in designing and operation of gas-fired boiler

    In the following paper, some problems of safety for catalytic boilers with fixed and fluidised beds are discussed. The reason is to protect the boiler from gas and fuel-air mixture explosion. For it the conditions excluding the transition from catalytic combustion to flame must be observed, and they are presented in the article for different combustible gases. A special attention has been paid to ...

  • Influence of Decreasing Heating Value on MSW Combustion

    Test runs in the TAMARA test facility to investigate the influence of decreasing lower heating value on the combustion of waste showed that the combustion quality could easily be kept constant at heating values exceeding 5 MJ/kg. The burnout of grate ashes and flue gas had slightly fallen off at lower heating values whereas the level of PCDD/F in the raw gas stayed constant in all tests. The ...
