Abstract:

A VARIABLE POROSITY SILICON CARBIDE CERAMIC FOAM IS DEVELOPED FOR BURNING OF FOSSIL FUELS. THE CONCEPT EMPLOYS BILAYERED RADIANT BURNER OBSERVED SUBSURFACE LOW NOX COMBUSTION RESULTS AND ANALYTICAL MODELLING OF POROUS RADIANT BURNERS TO DESIGN A NEW MATERIAL CONCEPT. BASED ON PROJECTED PERFORMANCE OF 300% REDUCTION IN NOX WITH A FACTOROF 2 INCREASE IN RADIANT EFFICIENCY IS ACHIEVABLE. THE HOMOGENEOUS GRADED POROSITY MATERIAL IS DESIGNED TO PROHIBITFLASHBACK, STABILIZE COMBUSTION BELOW THE HOT SURFACE AND PREVENT MECHANICAL FAILURES OBSERVED IN BILAYERED RADIANT BURNER MATERIALS. COST OF THIS EXCITING MATERIAL CONCEPT IS 1/2 OF CURRENT RADIANT BURNERS.
