Catalytic Combustion Applications
Catalytic radiant burner with energy recuperation ( DC4FLUENT )
Cold methane/air mixture flows into the burner that is coated on the inner side of the upper fecralloy plate with platinum catalyst. The mixture catalytically burns at the catalyst heating up the plate. The thermal radiation at the exteriour side of the plate can be used for heating and drying.
