Advancing Combustion Testing: From Stability to Efficiency

We’ve reached an exciting milestone in our combustion testing journey! Our preliminary combustion test rig has delivered outstanding results, achieving great flame stability, optimal operating temperatures, and reliable ignition. With the swirler, injection system, and fuel control system all functioning perfectly, we’re nearing the combustion efficiency levels we need.

Watch as we prepare to test three different atomizers and swirlers in a new rig, setting the stage for our gas generator trials. While emissions testing is still on the horizon, we’re thrilled with the progress and eager to continue pushing the boundaries of combustion technology. Join us as we advance to Rufus 2 and perfect our combustion system for future applications.
