ROJAS, Freddy J.; JIMENEZ, Fernando O.  and  SOTO, Jasmine. Theoretical and Experimental Analysis of the Power, Thermal Efficiency and Emissions of Industrial Stoves using Liquefied Petroleum Gas. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2019, vol.30, n.4, pp.301-310. ISSN 0718-0764.

The objective of the work presented in this paper is to improve the thermal performance of industrial stoves that use liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) in order to promote good use of the resource in the city of Lima. The tests were carried out in a test bench, where physical variables were registered to be used in the prototype model. Then, the power and performance of several industrial stoves in the Peruvian market were determined to compare with the design of the prototype device considering two international standards. The burner gave a wide range of power according to the working pressure used and a high efficiency of 59% compared to the stoves that are nationwide sold, which are on average 45%. The advantage of this prototype device is that it uses operating pressures between 28 to 60 mbar compared to kitchens in the Peruvian market that use pressures between 3 to 6 bar, thus reducing the risks associated with fire and explosion.
