Award Amount: $40,000.00
 

Abstract:

CONVENTIONAL GAS-FIRED COOKING RANGES HAVE LOW OVERALL THERMAL COOKING EFFICIENCY, WASTING APPROXIMATELY HALF OF THE COMBUSTION ENERGY. FURTHER, COOKING IMPLEMENTS HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED AS A MAJOR SOURCE OF THE INDOOR AIR POLLUTANTS NO2 AND CO. THE PURPOSE OF THE RESEARCH PROPOSEDHEREIN IS TO CONSTRUCT A WORKING PROTOTYPE OF A CATALYTIC INFRARED GAS BURNER SUITABLE FOR COMMERCIAL AND DOMESTIC COOKING THAT WILL BE MORE EFFICIENT THAN CONVENTIONAL APPARATUS AND THAT WILL PRODUCE NEGLIGIBLE AMOUNTS OF NOX AND CO. A PATENTED PROCESS USED BY CEC WILL ALLOW THE BURNER TO OPERATE EFFICIENTLY AND CLEANLY, WITH RADIATION ASITS MAJOR MODE OF HEAT TRANSFER TO THE COOKING UTENSIL. THEEXPECTED THERMAL COOKING EFFICIENCY OF THE BURNER WILL BE 70PERCENT. CONCENTRATIONS IN THE EXHAUST GASES OF NOX WILL BELESS THAN 10 PPM, AND FOR CO WILL BE LESS THAN 50 PPM.
