Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a catalytic burner element comprising a reactor chamber with an inlet and an outlet for gaseous fuel and a heat-exchanging wall. A multiplicity of catalyst particles is joined to a three-dimensional support of a heat-conducting material composed of a metal and/or a metal compound for conducting heat from the catalyst particles to the heat-exchanging wall. The three-dimensional support of the heat-conducting material is composed, for example, of a foam-type cellular structure having open cells or a structure having similar properties. The burner element has very good heat-conducting properties so that a high heat flux can be obtained through a relatively small surface area. An embodiment according to the invention comprises a Stirling engine provided with such a burner element.
(FR) L'invention a pour objet un brûleur catalytique comprenant une chambre de réaction dotée d'une entrée et d'une sortie de combustible gazeux et une paroi d'échange thermique. Une pluralité de particules catalytiques sont reliées à un support tridimensionnel d'un matériau thermoconducteur composé d'un métal et/ou d'un composé métallique destiné à conduire la chaleur depuis les particules catalytiques vers la paroi d'échange thermique. Ledit support tridimensionnel se compose, par exemple, d'une structure alvéolaire de type mousse à alvéoles ouverts ou d'une structure dont les caractéristiques sont similaires. Le brûleur présente d'excellentes propriétés thermoconductrices, ce qui permet d'obtenir un flux de chaleur élevé sur une surface relativement petite. Dans une forme d'exécution de cette invention, on utilise un moteur de type Stirling, équipé d'un tel brûleur.
