Another show-piece in the R&D are the activities of Innovation,
Simulation, Component and Process Analysis: studies are carried out
using state-of-the-art software which allows simulations and mathematical flow controls.
These studies, made in collaboration with prestigious Italian Universities,
are often published in important international scientific magazines which help to consolidate
the prestige and credibility of Riello Burners as it remains a point of reference for many studies in this sector.
The choice to make a condensing boiler to operate with low temperature
helps to pull down the radiation losses, tied to the difference of temperature between surroundings
environment and heat exchanger.
3D DESIGN AND FLUID DYNAMICS SIMULATION
The possible design solutions are studied in R&D Department
to develop new Combustion heads and Ventilation System to improve
Combustion performances relating to the new Norms and Market trends.
Working in synergy with the research and design activities is
the Prototype Laboratory equipped with rapid prototyping cells,
Stereo Lithography and silicon vacuum mould systems.
These techniques allow a great deal of time to be saved in producing
components for the continuous development of new products for both the residential and industrial areas.
Riello are tested in order to improve their Combustion Performance
and to satisfy the demand of OEMs Manufacturers of Boilers,
Generators and Ovens for customized solutions
COMBUSTION RESEARCH CENTER
Not far from the Center of Excellence we find
the Combustion Research Center which was built in the 80’s and tripled in size
in 2001 to manage the numerous requests for testing commercial and industrial burners,
as well as the continuous demands to carry out matching tests for manufacturers of boilers,
generators and ovens.
The Combustion Research Center covers an area of 3,600 sq.m. out of a total 10,000 sq.m. and houses 20 test boilers
where products ranging from 10kW to 32MW are tested. There is also a dedicated training area inside the Center with
classrooms and four test boilers able to test burners of varying power.
During the year this training area is used for
numerous refresher courses as well as training courses to present new products.
