AbstractPCI proposes a novel recuperated Microlith flameless catalytic combustion system technology for a hot surface cooktop module fueled with JP8. The design integrates several innovations to enable complete flameless combustion without coking and with very high heating efficiency (>75% griddle heat release to LHV fuel thermal content). The technology builds on prior company successes with compact logistics fuel processing and compact burners. Compared to current MBUs, the result will be a much lower fuel requirement with attendant net cost, volume and weight savings, and reduced logistics burden. The catalytic combustion system will have reduced emissions and noise, and longer life. Phase I will produce a bench scale prototype demonstrating proof of concept and stated performance objectives including 75%+ thermal efficiency and 100 hours of operation.
