Summary of the master project:
DLF Sustainable is a specialist in the field of thermodynamical
applications. Examples are: sludge dryers/incinerators, heaters, food
dryers, gasification units, etc.
One of our top products is the Pulsed Combustion Burner suitable for
small and large power capacities. With this type of burner we achieve
production increase as high as 40 % due to the extreme increase of
heat exchange capacity. Depending on the application we achieve often
a 10 tot 50 % saving on energy.
Advanced 5 MW pulsed combustion burner
In this master thesis project, research is planned to have a better
understanding of the pulsed combustion burner. As a first start we
investigate the modelling and simulation of a Rijke
tube. Research questions are:
enhancement of the efficiency, optimization of the geometry,
understanding the frequency of the oscillations etc.
