DCS General Technical description
The DCS was designed and built by the engineer Domenico Tanfoglio in 1980 and patented in 1981. At the time, it was a “revolutionary discovery” for many companies that had to dispose of waste. Today the DCS has a proven and innovative system that allows a controlled molecular disintegration of the solid fuel and a complete stoichiometric combustion, which guarantees emissions far below the limits of law.
Consider, for example, purchase companies that every year have a very high cost for the waste management and another burden related to the acquisition of fossil fuel, which moreover cause irreversible damage to the planet.
The DCS transforms all types of material with no apparent value, i.e. all the processing waste of organic nature, such as wood, tires, plastic, textile material and anything else, including heterogeneous coupled waste, that are difficult and expensive to separate and differentiate. Whatever the input material, the DCS produces very high amounts of clean thermal energy.
“Clean” because the unique characteristics of the combustion chamber guarantee the complete oxidation of the fuel, so that there isn’t production of carbon monoxide (CO); farther more, our special fumes cleaning system (Hydraulic Grid Filter) is able to capture up to nanoparticles of particulate matter carried by the flue gas.
The DCS is an automatic burner fed with organic solid fuel of any kind, e.g. vegetable and animal origin biomass, such as wood, agricultural and agri-food products, polymers, refuse-derived fuel, paper, waste tires and textile industry.
It’s designed to collaborate with water boilers and hot air, steam boilers and thermal oil heaters, heat exchangers, heaters recovery and in direct contact for processing heat. It is also the solution for existing boilers, as an alternative to burners fuelled with hydrocarbons, methane gas, propane and LPG.
The name is derived from the unique ability to bring the molecular decomposition of long complex chains that characterize solid fuels, in order to use the entire fuel calorific value and minimize the amount of ash produced.
The burner works at stoichiometric combustion conditions thanks to a dedicated carburettor and oxygen control system, therefore respecting the emission limits imposed by local laws.
The ashes are automatically removed with a system equipped with augers and moving bed.
The DCS includes an easy system to modulate power. The burner can cooperate in a direct way with temperature sensors on utilities and automatically adjust the load.
Thanks to an Electrical Control Panel and a network adapter in Wi-Fi connection, the system can be monitored and controlled remotely from portable devices.
The burner is equipped with a security system which excludes the burner itself in case of overheating or lack of power supply.
