SCOPE OF WORK
The boiler that was supplied to the Customer was installed in its entirety, with consultation from Combustion Technology. The Combustion Technology Boiler Management Interface was supplied for monitoring O2 emissions as well as remote monitoring of various signals and alarms.
MAIN OBJECTIVE AND KEY FACTORS FOR THE SUCCESSFUL INSTALLATION OF THE KIT
The products of the combustion process are extremely good, with sub 130 ppm CO levels, and O2 ranging between 4% to 7% at various firing rates.
The Customer has inspected the boiler flue after some use, and reports extremely little residue in the firing chamber.
Boiler has now reached 1 500 kg/h steam production, feeding 3,2 kg/min of Alien Fuel™.
The bio-mass burner boiler setup is scalable to reach the Customer’s requirements.
FUEL SAVINGS AND EMISSION REDUCTION RESULTS
The burner performs at 1200 °C with a controlled, variable length flame operating at > 90 % efficiency.
It is certified carbon neutral and on a gigajoule per gigajoule and fully absorbed cost basis outperforms ANY liquid fossil fuel per ton of steam delivered
COMMENT FROM THE CUSTOMER
Where other companies in this space assured Alien Fuel their concept was a non-starter,
Combustion Technology came through. Their professional advice, experience, consistent effort, and “can do” mentality were key components in bringing the concept to a reality. Convincing international suppliers to even look at the South African born technology, let alone certify it ITO warranty – was a big ask – successfully achieved by the Combustion Technology Team.
Result? In their words a “Game Changer” – now Alien Fuel’s concept and products are internationally accredited – having just won an EU First Prize for Sustainability in the Green Energy sphere.
