Job description

An exciting opportunity has arisen for candidates to develop novel Design Software which will address the challenge of designing burner systems with reduced emissions and more complex fuel blends. The new Design Software needs to be capable of modelling fuel emissions and complex fuel behaviours to enable Lanemark to deliver optimised designs for its burner systems, which will both meet future stringent regulations on emissions and be capable of burning complex fuel blends without increasing emissions.

This 30-month project takes the form of a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) (http://www.ktponline.org.uk), which provides you with practical and formal training and the availability of support from experienced mentors from Lanemark Combustion Engineering Limited (Lanemark), Aston University and Innovate UK.

Project description

In partnership with Aston University, a successful candidate will develop novel Design
Software which will address the challenge of designing burner systems with reduced
emissions and more complex fuel blends. The new Design Software needs to be
capable of modelling fuel emissions and complex fuel behaviours to enable Lanemark
to deliver optimised designs for its burner systems, which will both meet future
stringent regulations on emissions and capable of burning complex fuel blends without
increasing emissions.
The Innovative Design Software, integrated into Lanemark’s design process will
embrace the new knowledge on fuel characteristics transferred in this project, resulting
in the design of: a) three new low emission products for process air heating, liquid tank
heating and petrochemical applications, and b) two new low-carbon fuel prototypes
using Hydrogen or similar new low- Carbon Fuel Blends.

About the business

Lanemark Combustion Engineering Limited (Lanemark), currently designs, manufactures and supplies gas fired process heating burners and ancillary systems (e.g., fans, ducting, tubular heat exchangers etc), used in manufacturing and petrochemical facilities. These systems have been developed to meet specific client needs based on Lanemark's comprehensive understanding of gas as an energy source combined with a detailed awareness of industry needs and of both local and international regulations, particularly environmental compliance.
