  Project summary

Project name:

Development of a low energy combustor for heating oil 

Project acronym: NEO-Brenner 
Project duration: 01.04.2016 - 30.06.2019 
Financial support by: Aif -ZIM (

Commercial heating oil burners are generally based on pressure atomization,  the minimum mass flow being limited to approximately 5 kW thermal power, or on so-called vapor evaporators, which have only a limited service life. In addition, the modulation range of commercial fuel oil burners is limited to ratios smaller than 5:1 because of the atomizer types used.
Within the scope of the R & D project, an innovative spray generator is to be developed, which makes it possible to atomize minute throughputs of fuel oil. The spray generator generates a drop chain by means of a piezoelectric element, whereby the total mass flow for the atomization process is to be varied by modulation in a wide range.
The spray generator is then to be integrated into a combustion chamber. The burner should be able to operate steplessly between 300 W and 7.5 kW while respecting all legal emission limits.
