Prospect of compact afterburners based on metallic microstructures. Design and modelling

  • Andrzej Kołodziej
  • Joanna ŁojewskaEmail author

Two types of structured catalytic reactors for CO/NO x /VOC removal are designed, modelled and compared to classic monoliths: short-channel and gauze structures. The designed structures show promise as to highly enhance mass transfer and moderate flow resistance leading to a significant reduction of a reactor length, accompanied by a decrease (or slight increase for the gauze) in pressure drop.
