Thermal Kinetic Energizer. Is this thing Legit?
Hey guys, I need some help in unraveling this mystery..
So this company, Fedmet manufactures a thing called a Thermal Kinetic Energizer. This is supposed to replace existing burners in foundries and reduce fuel usage significantly. Also, the flame itself is apparently much cooler than a regular burner flame.
Here's a link to a product brochure: http://ift.tt/2suQoDd
And an article:
Here's a link to an old technology website: http://ift.tt/2suAMQm
Basically, the only two things that go into this product are natural gas and air from a blower. The hot exhaust gasses leave this burner at 220 m/s and apparently that speed causes the gas particles to heat up the furnace/kiln/ whatever much more efficiently.
It seems to me that this won't save anywhere close to their claimed fuel savings by just increasing the velocity of the gas stream. If you increase the velocity, you either need more energy to provide more flow or you need a smaller orifice for the gas to flow through which would require a higher pressure of gas to go through it which again, requires more energy to be used at the blower. The brochure has lots of buzz words and reads as if it's not a legit product.
