Burner Testing

Perry_3 Member Posts: 498
I could ask arround at work on who the appropriate labs are in the US for that kind of testing. However, expect to pay 5 figures for a proper test done to appropriate standards.

But, you might be better off to find a college with a solid engineering program and offer to work with a professor and some graduate students and let them learn about testing of burners. They will certainly want to test others as well as part of the project. Figure at least a year or two for the project as well as you are very unlikely to find a group of students who are currently doing that type of testing and have the appropriate setup. If you can provide some funding it would help a lot. My estimate is that a project like this could probably be done for about 1/4 of the cost of lab testing (but it may be more or less than that). Also, be aware that the test results will likely be in the public domain. However, in the end you would have the oportunity to learn a lot about burners.

    Burner Testing

    Does anyone know of a place in New England (closer to New Hampshire the better) where I can have a newly invented power burner tested for BTU's and fuel consumption? Do any of the colleges do this?

    Hi Gene,

    Call Tom Butcher at 631 344-7916. If he can't do it, I'm sure he knows who can.
