As Canada's premiere Research and Technology Organization, the National
Research Council of Canada (or NRC) is advancing the deployment of bioenergy for
stationary energy systems.
On screen: Gas turbine research facilities
NRC possesses world-class expertise for enhancing and optimizing the use of
biofuels in gas turbines.
Our Gas turbine research facilities will help you develop next generation
technologies in fuel flexibility, alternative fuels, emissions and
operability, using an extensive range of test methods and equipment for fuel
atomization and combustion.
On screen: Spray rig facility
NRC's Spray Rig Facility has unique capabilities to optimize spray performance
within your combustion engine.
Start by characterizing your spray, from droplet size to velocity.
Our laser-based diagnostic tools record your results with utmost precision.
The rig excels at high-temperature testing - supporting a variety of biofuel types,
from high-viscosity pyrolysis oil for stationary power, to other liquid fuels.
Our rig is capable of testing injectors at high pressure and fuels
heated up to 590 Kelvin.
On screen: Low pressure combustion test facility
Optimize the performance of your combustion system in NRC's Low Pressure
Combustion Test Facility.
Here you can test and validate innovative concepts to improve the fundamental
performance of your combustion system, in a high precision, cost-effective
Characterize the operability of your prototype with our advanced, non-intrusive
diagnostic tools, which acquire data via a four-way optical access.
Or, validate its fuel flexibility; the facility is capable of supplying
synthesized gas fuel mixtures and alternative liquid fuels, in addition to
natural gas and diesel.
In-situ continuous emissions monitoring systems are also available.
On screen: Supporting infrastructure
NRC's Gas turbine research facilities, and specifically the high pressure combustion
test facility, are supported by specialized large-scale air delivery, fuel
supply and auxiliary cooling infrastructure.
On screen: High pressure combustion test facility
Optimize your technologies for commercial use, using NRC's well-equipped High
Pressure Combustion Test Facility.
Bring your own high-pressure test rig or use NRC's optically-accessible rig to
carry out a range of testing at engine-representative conditions.
Test for combustor operability, fuel flexibility, alternative fuels and
emissions performance at pressures of up to 20 bar.
Working with NRC's Gas turbine research facilities lets you tap into an unmatched
breadth of applied research talent.
Our deep understanding of bioenergy for stationary energy systems is complemented
by a track record of innovative projects in various sectors.
