The cylinder coatings give the engine long life and this type of high durability coatings have been applied in Formula 1 since the 1990’s with championship winners.
Heat exchangers on the hot side of the engine are designed for operation at high temperatures of 600 – 1100C for extended periods. The heat exchangers are designed to operate on heat from any heat source as the engine is not operated on the combustion itself but the action of heat that pressurise a working gas inside the engine.
Combustion of biofuels as wood pellets or biogas or other fuels from crop waste or other renewable energy source. The range of different crop waste fuels are also wide (rice husk, coconut shells, wheat bran, corn stalk, palm shavings, bamboo dust, nut shells, bagasse, verge grass, miscanthus and more).
At Inresol we have spent years on trials on different fuels and also on other heat sources as waste heat and high temperature energy storage systems.
