International Flame Research Foundation’s workshop to address combustion challenges

The industrial combustion sector is an essential part of the global economy, providing energy and materials for a wide range of applications. However, the scale up of lab-scale experimental and simulation approaches to industrial combustion systems can be a challenging task due to the complexity and size of industrial processes.

To address these issues , the International Flame Research Foundation (IFRF) will be hosting a workshop on April 25, 2023, at the University of Rouen, France. The workshop will host  eminent members from the industry and academia involved in industrial combustion to exchange  their views and experiences. One of the key questions that will be addressed at the workshop is what experimental parameters are needed to characterise industrial combustion systems which are complex with experimental parameters often difficult to determine. This is due to the large number of variables involved, such as fuel type, combustion air flow rate, and temperature, to name a few.

Fives will be represented by Sébastien Caillat, Combustion Chief Expert, from Fives Stein and Jose Luis Andres, Engineer PhD student, from Fives Pillard.

Fives will present its efficient and sustainable solution, such as AdvanTek® radiant tube burners along with a testing and development platform to implement technical studies and diagnostics providing recommendations to steelmakers on combustion efficiency. The workshop will focus on different industrial sectors, such as steel, glass, cement, power production, biomass, and waste  fuel and invite to exchange on the best practices..
