Combustion systems

When making a change, make it for the better

Expert knowledge and innovative thinking - the key to effective solutions

Operators of industrial power plants are constantly under pressure to improve efficiency, reduce operational costs and meet changing emission requirements. The growing awareness of environmental issues and the need to conserve resources are our incentive for innovation.


Upgrades to existing furnaces and combustion systems have become unavoidable as a result of ever more stringent legislation. The real challenge, however, is to ensure that the new applications comply with the rules without reducing plant efficiency and increasing operational costs.

Steinmüller Engineering has the knowledge and experience to convert a fuel’s stored chemical energy into usable energy. We have successfully realized a huge number of projects worldwide, covering various industrial sectors, types and sizes of plant. Special fuels and fuel combinations in particular are our area of expertise, including the development of customized solutions for process residues, biomass, biogas and fossil fuels. Our clients rely on us to find the best strategy for challenging retrofit projects, in accordance with their specific plant designs.

CFB Boiler

Steinmüller Engineering’s CFBC (Circulating Fluidized Bed Combustion) technology is based on the knowledge and experience of its former L. & C. Steinmüller GmbH personnel, combined with the current development activities within Steinmüller Engineering GmbH today.


After founding, Steinmüller Engineering GmbH started with further development of this CFBC technology based on the experience of its employees. Multiple CFBC market studies, basic engineering and detailed design work has been carried out for CFBC boilers up to 250 MWel. Our design activities include the CFBC combustion system, the water/steam circuit and pressure parts as well as fuel handling and ash removal and handling systems.
