Regenerator Test Bed

Regenerator Test Bed The rig is a pilot scale, 3m high, regenerator test bed. The object of rig is to heat up a ceramic bed using a gas burner and measure how effectively heat can be transferred to a reversed air flow. The rig is to be used to (1) test commercially available regenerator bed materials, (2) develop more efficient control strategies for this type of application, (3) obtain better understanding of the underlying heat transfer processes and how they inter connect. The rig has been designed such that the bed material can be replaced easily.
