A common goal: reducing emissions
Combustion processes produce various harmful emissions such as corrosive nitrogen oxides (NOx). It is particularly important to Gautschi Engineering GmbH to reduce these emissions as much as possible, especially to safeguard people’s health and protect nature. And also not only fulfil the legal limits, but to be significantly within them.
This is why Gautschi Engineering launched a joint research project with DBI in Freiberg in 2017. A new burner test stand was commissioned for the development work.
PERFORM BETTER50% lower emissions
After two years of intensive research and development work, the project was completed – with remarkable results: the reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions was 50% compared to the previous design.
With the knowledge gained, a new burner design with minimised emissions was created and thus a completely new product type that not only contributes to human health and environmental protection, but also improves the performance of customer systems. The new product is now being installed in furnaces as part of several projects – the commissioning of these projects was planned for 2023.
An essential componentThe Scheuch COMPONENTS hot-gas fan
Gases produced during combustion must be blown in different directions. This is where the Scheuch COMPONENTS hot gas fan comes into play. With a operating flow rate of 2,019 Am³/h and a operating total pressure increase of 11,507 Pa, the radial fan efficiently moves the gases in the desired directions.
“Scheuch COMPONENTS has already proven itself to be an excellent supplier in numerous orders. We were also able to fulfil all our requirements for this project and achieve a very good price/performance ratio,” reports Werner Wiggen, Technology Manager at Gautschi Engineering GmbH.
Scheuch hot gas fans blows gases at up to 1,000 °C thanks to special design features and the use of high-quality materials. This also makes it possible, for example, to integrate a heat treatment system with heating, annealing and cooling zones. And all from a single source.
