Catalytic air heater


схема вгск анг2.jpg

Provides economic and ecologically friendly fuel combustion, low metal consumption, reliable operation.
Heating of greenhouses, warehouses, working and service areas.

The operation is based on two-stage combustion of liquid or gaseous (natural gas) fuel.
The first stage is fuel flaring.
The produced fuel gas is mixed with air using a centrifugal vent to reach the required temperature and fed to the second chamber bearing a honeycomb monolith catalyst. At 400–800°C, the catalytic cartridge provides the full oxidation of carbon monoxide and products of fuel incomplete burning, as well as reduction of nitrogen oxides.

A series of 0.03 to 3.0 MW heat power units in a variety of sizes and shapes have been developed

 
Specifications (a 90 kW air heater)
Natural gas flow rate, m3/h 9.1
Air productivity, m3/h 5000
Air heating, °C, no less plus 50
Heating efficiency,% 99

 

Content of toxic compounds in the heated outlet air is below MAC of the work space.
These are, mg/m3   MAC* in fact
СОx 20 13
NOx  5  3
SOx 10  9
CnHy 50 30

* MAC are Russian standards on maximum allowable concentration

The units of 100 kW capacity are commercially used in greenhouse farms Russia wide.
