NEW INSIGHTS IN THE BURNING AND COMBUSTION OF HEAVY –NON VOLATILE ORGANIC LIQUIDS.
Ladies and gentlemen,
start with an introduction, I am a colloidchemist, trained at the Van 't Hoff Laboratory of the Dutch State University of Utrecht. Soon after, I got involved in electrochemical research at the Philips Physical Laboratory at Eindhoven and later in high temperature
physics and chemistry at the Central Laboratory of Philips Lighting.
I appreciate this opportunity to present results of my private research about the existence of a thermal phenomenon,
that controls the atomization of heavy fuels by carbonized substrates. To my knowledge this phenomenon has so far not been studied scientifically.
Having concluded the exploratory studies
I approached Shell - Amsterdam to discuss my results. After some reverting, Rob Tausk, a former colleague of my Van 't Hoff period, prompted me to contact Lionel Clarke of Shell GSUK. I am indebted to these gentlemen!
It is to be understood that I will present today this thermal phenomenon, only, in terms of outlines, features and potential opprtunities that might be of interest to Shell. Details of my model for atomization are excluded from this non-confidential
