Technical Back-up Renders Research Possible In the research laboratories and at the test benches of OWI, a project-oriented, highly specialised technical infrastructure is usually available. This ranges from burner technology from the industry sector to household boilers and to burners for research purposes. It also includes industrial furnaces, various fuel processors and fuel cell systems (HT-PEM, SOFC), a chemistry laboratory for fuel analytics as well as Hardware-in-the-Loop-test-benches, e.g. for component testing. And not last a highly differentiated metrology, e.g. for the determination of reasons for acoustic combustion phenomena or the measurement of boiler efficiencies.
To design, to rig up and to bring total system test-benches into service, to test technical partial and total systems as well as their components in endurance tests and to achieve valid results – several working groups which cooperate closely, make sure that the complex research and development tasks are carried out fast and smoothly.
The OWI Oel-Waerme-Institut gGmbH is an independent and non-profit research institution. OWI researches and develops concepts and technologies in the areas of energy-efficient use of liquid conventional and alternative fuels as well as innovative technologies in cooperation with partners from the industry and research. Subjects of research and development are the areas of production process, substance properties, application and storage, conceptual development as well as technology assessment and transfer. The aim is to develop sohisticated low-carbon and low-emission solutions for tomorrow´s heat generation and mobility.
OWI is a provider of research services and sees itself as a mediator between fundamental research and application. Its employees do not only work on projects which are financed from public funds but also on industrial research agreements. Clients range from manufacturers of domestic heating systems to companies of the automotive supply industry, the petroleum industry and the industrial furnace design to several other industries.
