A pioneer in the production and support of complex welded fabricated components, powerplants and industrial gas turbine packages, Magellan, recognized as one of the leading Canadian aerospace facilities today, is capable of serving the world through five business units. One of these units Advanced Materials & Energy Systems (AMES) involves research and development of advanced engine component repairs, proprietary technology coatings and alternate fuels. Combining the talents and experiences of our dedicated employees, state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, advanced repair & overhaul processes, engineering expertise and research & development capabilities yields a formidable capacity which enables Magellaan to develop increasingly cost effective solutions for the application of modern power and propulsion technologies. Extensive use of sophisticated and computer-assisted design, development and testing underscores its continuous commitment to achieving higher quality, closer tolerances and faster turnarounds.
Transportation Technologies - Other
The complex structures of the biomass feed stocks are broken into useful fuel or chemical "building blocks" by intense thermal action achieved by very rapid heating and a short (fraction of a second) processing time. This process results in the division of the large molecules and their reformation. Rapid cooling then preserves the initial decomposition products and yields a liquid fuel product. The process is flexible in that the fuel properties can be tailored through variation of the processing parameters.
The pyrolysis process is applicable to many types of feed stocks:
- Wood and wood residues
- Sugar cane residuals (e.g. bagasse and cane trash)
- Straw and grasses
- Rice husks
- Palm, peanut and coconut shells
- Crude oils
- Heavy oils
- Asphalt and bitumen
- Heavy distillates from petroleum refining
- Tire crumb
- Waste paper and sludges
- Straw and grasses
- Waste paper
Products and Services:
In conjunction with Magellan's Industrial group, the biofuel is being developed for application to power their OGT2500 2.85 MW industrial package.
