The Hilton Combustion Laboratory Unit enables students to study many aspects of combustion and Burner operation using burners typical of those used commercially. A Gas burner is fitted as standard, and a Oil burner is supplied with the unit also. The unit is frame mounted, is fully instrumented and requires only a conventional single phase electrical supply, cooling water and the chosen fuel.
As a purpose built training unit it is designed for supervised student operation by including several safety features. A hand held digital gas analyser supplied allows the O2 content of the flue gas to be determined and this in turn allows calculation of the air /fuel ratio, excess air and combustion efficiency.
For advanced students or research, an optional high specification gas analyser C492D is available that allows investigation of CO, NO and SO2 in addition to the standard analysis.
The unit will be of wide interest to all those concerned with the combustion of fuels and energy conservation, from the burner maintenance technician, to research and test engineers.
