Oil separation system for high performance engines

Each time a gasoline or diesel engine ignites, a small portion of the fuel-air mixture escapes into the crankcase through leaks from the combustion chamber. This gas must be removed and the droplets of engine oil contained in it separated. This reduces pollutant emissions and ensures the efficiency of the engine. The new BINE-Projektinfo brochure entitled “Keeping the oil in the engine” (16/2017) presents two newly developed active separation systems for small oil particles. The particular focus of the developers has been on modern, higher-density and compactly designed engines.  more...

Hotel utilises decentralised heat generation

Hotels spend a lot of energy in order to offer their guests the expected amount of comfort. Energy costs therefore account for five to ten per cent of the turnover. In order to combine high comfort with low operating costs, the developers relied on an unusual building services technology concept when converting a building in Munich to become a hotel. The new BINE-Projektinfo brochure entitled “New building services technology concept tested in hotel” (15/2017) presents the technical concept, the results of the monitoring and a survey of the hotel guests. What triggered the concept was the search for energy-efficient protection against Legionella.  more...

How economical are energy-optimised buildings?

In technical terms it is relatively easy to construct and renovate buildings with minimal energy requirements. However, when, for whom and to what extent the selected construction standard is economical is a matter of considerable debate within the professional world and politics. The new BINE-Themeninfo brochure entitled “Profitability of energy-optimised buildings” (III/2017) introduces approaches, calculation methods as well as real estate and research projects. These show that energy-optimised buildings can achieve cost-effectiveness through integrated, holistic planning in conjunction with monitoring.  more...

Wind energy: Preparing rotor blades for rain

Every day, the rotor blades on a wind turbine collide with raindrops, hail or grains of sand. Over time, these impacts leave traces on the blade and material erosion begins. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure "Rain can damage rotor blades" (14/2017) presents research results on this gradual material destruction. The underlying mechanisms of this type of erosion are being researched on a new test stand. The aim is to improve the protection and economic efficiency of rotor blades.  more...
