Advanced Combustion Modelling

Ammegen uses Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modelling to simulate base condition furnace combustion, as well as to optimise our technology applications to ensure they fit with our clients’ plant and business drivers.

Ammegen’s researchled CFD modelling technologies can
perform the vast range of calculations required to simulate the interaction of all key variables associated with combustion in utility and industrial boilers.

Each furnace, modelled by our CFD experts, is configured for its own unique fuel composition, airflow characteristics and existing equipment. The models are used to tailor our technologies to work optimally with our clients’ specific systems and project objectives.

Benefits of CFD modelling

  • Enables diagnosis and solutions by identifying specific furnace operational problems
  • Reduces costs by allowing designers to predict results before installation
  • Enables detailed insights by providing understanding of furnace operation that cannot be obtained through testing and measurement
  • Saves time by eliminating time consuming on-site trial and error situations
  • Enables preinstallation testing of fuels, equipment and plant accessories
