In the scope of an ESA-funded theoretical and experimental study (in the GSTP3 program) on heat exchangers intended to provide in-flight oxygen collection capability to a reusable or a semi-reusable TSTO launcher with an oxygen collection phase in supersonic cruise, two subscale models of an air-hydrogen precooler and a test set-up are currently being developed in Belgium and in Spain. The vehicle we foresee for this application is described in previous conference papers as well as the work on our ESA-funded airborne air separator, which is the other critical element of the oxygen collection plant. This current paper is concentrating only on the theoretical but mainly the technological and experimental aspects of such an air precooler. The experimental and technical aspects include choices and main trade-offs that have had to be made during the design process by the different partners (Techspace Aero, von Karman Institute, Iberespacio, University of Liège, Royal Military Academy of Belgium and University of Brussels). After we fixed the requirements at system level and at the precooler level, a simulation work of generic heat exchangers is presented including the problem of frost formation and its influence on the heat exchanger performance. A few advanced heat exchanger designs are analysed resulting in a more detailed parametric and performance analysis of two advanced configurations. A detailed study of the most advantageous heat exchangers materials is shown resulting in the selection of the alloys for the two breadboards. The manufacturing processes for these two breadboards are defined, based on trials on small scale models inspired from the two technology candidates. Perspectives are also given for the mechanical and thermodynamic testing of the two breadboards. [less ▲]

To assess the CO emissions of fuel oil boilers, tests have been performed on a boiler in transient and steady state regimes. The tests were performed so that the output power (about 370 kW) was kept constant in steady state regime (same water flow rate and inlet and outlet temperatures). On the other hand, the oxygen content of the flue gas in the chimney was kept constant (around 3%). Classical gas analysers were used to measure the CO2, O2, CO and NOx concentrations in the flue gas. The two main parameters investigated are the nozzle capacity and the corresponding fuel injection pressure to keep the same burner consumption. Four nozzles whose capacity ranges from 30 to 45 kg/h (at a fuel supply pressure of 20 bar) were fitted on the burner equipping the fuel oil boiler. All the nozzles used are spill return and 45° spray angle type. The tests performed showed that in steady-state regime, the CO emissions are very low compared to the limits established by the European standard (110 mg/kWh of energy consumption). A comparison with calculated CO emissions shows also that the values obtained in equilibrium conditions are too high. On the other hand, in the transient regime (start-up regime for a cycling boiler), the CO emissions are not negligible and increase significantly if a high capacity nozzle is fitted on the fuel oil burner. In short, the paper demonstrates that in order to increase the boiler thermal efficiency and thus to reduce CO2 emissions (for the same output power), one has to avoid the CO emissions in the transient regime. When performing a replacement of the burner nozzle, a low capacity nozzle associated with an adjustment of a high fuel injection pressure is recommended, since a reduction of CO emissions in the starting-up regime is achieved and, on the other hand, the thermal efficiency and the pollutants emissions of the fuel oil boiler in steady state regime are not affected.

The aim of this work is to assess the technical feasibility and highlight the specific problem of application of diluted (or mild) combustion in a medium scale boiler by direct gas injection. The main difficulty is due to the high geometrical confinement and heat losses of a typical boiler combustion chamber, which prevents from getting the minimum level of reactants dilution and temperature needed to reach mild combustion regime. In this work, a preliminary CFD study has been performed to select a jet burner and secondary gas injector able to generate sufficient dilution and temperature of the air and gas jets before they meet in the combustion chamber of the boiler.
