Proof of concept model

What we have been working on for the past months, is a proof of concept. With this proof of concept, we want to show the feasibility of the combustion of iron powder in air.

The system consists of a dispersion system, where iron is put into a high air-flow. The iron-air mixture is then combusted. With a Stirling engine, we can generate electricity. The heat exchanger will exchange the rest of the heat to water, resulting in a warm water flow. An electrostatic filter, together with a cyclone will then capture the iron-oxide particles. The vacuum cleaner creates a negative pressure to make the flow after combustion possible.
