Abstract:

PRECISION COMBUSTION, INC. IS WORKING TO RESEARCH, DEVELOP AND COMMERCIALIZE CATALYTICALLY STABILIZED THERMAL COMBUSTION TECHNOLOGIES. OUR CHIEF SCIENTIST, DR. WILLIAM PFEFFERLE, INVENTED THE CATALYTIC COMBUSTOR, AND OUR YALE UNIVERSITY CONSULTANT FIRST DISCOVERED AND MEASURED THE FREE RADICAL-PRODUCING EFFECTS ON COMBUSTION OF HOT CATALYTIC SURFACES. BUILDING UPON THEIR EXPERTISE AND OUR EXPERIENCE FROM OTHER CATALYTIC COMBUSTION PROJECTS, WE PROPOSE TO WORK TO DEVELOP A CATALYTICALLY ACTIVE COMBUSTOR LINING FOR A TURBINE ENGINE COMBUSTOR WITH THE OBJECTIVE OF REDUCING HYDROCARBON EMISSIONS. BUILDING UPON EXPERIENCE WITH A CATALYTIC IGNITION LINER INVENTED BY DR. PFEFFERLE AND NOW IN USE BY THE MILITARY FOR HIGH ALTITUDE RELIGHT, APPROPRIATE CATALYST SURFACES WILL BE SCREENED IN AN ACTIVITY TESTING APPARATUS. IN CONJUNCTION WITH AN AEROSPACE GAS TURBINE MANUFACTURER, ONE OR MORE CATALYTIC SURFACE DESIGNS WILL BE INCORPORATED INTO AN EXISTING GAS TURBINECOMBUSTOR CERAMIC LINING, AND WILL THEN UNDERGO IDLE AND LOW LOAD ENGINE TESTING, IN CONCERT WITH OTHER AIR FORCE PROGRAMS, TO MEASURE THE EFFECTS ON HYDROCARBON EMISSIONS.
