Abstract
CUBE Technology has created an extremely compact and efficient catalytic combustor dubbed a Nano-Furnace. These Nano-Furnaces have demonstrated an unprecedented operating range and have operated on fuels from hydrogen to butane to JP-8. This catalytic combustor will be the core of the infusion fluid warmer. This combustor is fast-starting and delivers its heat gently, via radiation and convection. The heat will be used to heat a metal susceptor with both an infusion fluid heat transfer system and an air cooling system to control the temperature rise of the infusion fluids. In addition, this system could incorporate a small power converter between the Nano-Furnace and the susceptor to make it self-powered after a short start-up time and even re-charge the start-up battery during operation.
