Abstract

Heat exchangers are used in gas burners as recuperators. Their efficiency is proportional to their surface which is usually limited by the burner length and diameter. Ceramic recuperators used nowadays in industrial burners are tubular. We studied and developed a new generation of ceramic heat exchanger with the final goal of increasing the efficiency or, at similar efficiencies, of reducing their size and weight. A commercial SiSiC heat exchanger component was used to guarantee safety and robustness. The use of structured textile geometries followed by their conversion into a ceramic is the main innovation of this work.
