ASME Turbo Expo 2019: Mathematics to Shape

Mathematics to shape and feature integration:
discover new ways to design a burner with the model CBO4!

CBOne is present at the ASME Turbo Expo 2019, in Phoenix Arizona, from the 17th to the 21st of June.

Mrs. Moosbrugger will present our latest progress on Additive Manufacturing for burner design.

* * Ô la Belle Bleue !!!

Ok - the original title for this article was "Successful Maiden Fire for the First Full AM-Burner Designed by CBOne!" and it was renamed after some footballistic interference during the summer. Shortly said: Bravo les Bleus, Merci pour cette deuxième étoile! That was it, back to combustion now! 

The first full 3D printed burner designed by CBOne was tested with success. 

This validates our capacity to design a complete burner fit for operation under gas turbine conditions (natural gas-fired, premixed lean combustion, two-stage with a low swirl pilot embedded in a high swirl main), with additional features versus conventional such as a monolithic form, low finishing requirements, advanced thermal management, integrated ignition and prepared instrumentation ports for an advanced monitoring.

Better, safer, cleaner combustion

How can one drastically reduce fuel consumption? If the margin in terms of gains in efficiency at the main operation point is low (less than 5% using conventional combustion on most of the thermal facilities), the margin in terms of fuel savings at off-design operation is much greater. 

Combustion technologies can be improved. Furthermore, the operating costs of thermal facilities can be reduced while improving the safety. We tackle these affirmations with three flagship projects at CBOne: MethaNull, rePorT and emootion.

 

At Combustion Bay One, we own these technologies, we fine-tune these and we regularly publish our results.

Additive Manufacturing: The New Forge (Turbo Expo 2018)

The freedom of design using Additive Manufacturing (AM) opens the door towards new shapes and new designs. In combustion engineering, this is the opportunity to make better burners.

CBOne was present at the ASME Turbo Expo in Oslo, Norway, from the 11th to the 15th of June 2018. In collaboration with our colleagues from Joanneum Research GmbH and FH JOanneum in Graz, Austria, we made a study about shape factors for a novel type of swirler.
