One of the main aims to demonstrate is the extended air time (about 5 hours) by using micro-SOFC technology. The project consortium consists of 10 partners from 7 European countries. Catator is responsible for reformation of the propane as well as for combustion of anode waste gas (AWG) from the stack.
One of the major challenges within design of a integrated Fuel Processor (FP) and Fuel Cell stack is the weight and volume demands in a UAV system. One major advantage by using Catator’s mesh catalysts in UAV systems is the low weight, compactness and shape flexibility. This results in possibilities for a novel reactor design of the integrated FP – FC system.
Catator has developed a number of different catalytic burners for various applications during the last three decades. The cooled burners can be operated with most type of fuels and cooled with various coolants such as water, oil, chemical flow, evaporation, etc. The cooled burners can be extremely compact with a simple and low cost design.
Established in 2004, eco-burner Ltd has revolutionized the chafing fuel industry by offering the ultimate solution to traditional gel and wick heat sources; the refillable Chafo burner. Catator supply the mesh based combustion catalyst to Eco-burner.
