Optimisation of Logwood Fired Stoves by Means of Innovative Primary Measures

C. Mandl, T. Brunner, I. Obernberger & M. Koessl
Primary measures for logwood fired stoves have been evaluated and advanced stove concepts showing significantly reduced CO, OGC and PM emissions have been developed and tested. The primary measures covered advanced stove geometries, air supply concepts, air staging concepts as well as process control automation measures. The work performed has been based on two relevant approaches, namely experimental work as well as utilisation of CFD simulations for stove design, optimisation and evaluation. In a first...
