Public Profile

Though founded a couple of years after passage of the original government-wide SBIR enabling legislation, Precision Combustion quickly became part of that convening of quality players that are the "long-time' SBIR-involved. North Haven-based Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) was in the business of clean energy and (continues) to be a heavy hitter in the SBIR arena. From the outset - and now decades later - the company has been developing technology that maximizes the efficiency of energy generation while minimizing the release of atmospheric pollutants in the process. A privately held company, PCI continues to be an energy innovator — developing and manufacturing new components and systems for clean and efficient power generation, combustion, emissions control and chemical processes. __________________________ Precision Combustion Inc (PCI) is a clean energy technology firm developing and manufacturing catalytic devices and systems for energy and environmental sector applications. The company's primary technologies are: Microlith compact, high efficiency catalytic reactors and systems for fuel processors, fuel cell systems, compact burners, IC engine emissions after treatment, chemical reactors, adsorption-based air cleaning and other applications; as well as RCL ultra-low NOx catalytic combustors for gas turbines and high heat rate downhole steam generators for oil and gas production. The firm's products include fuel processors, internal combustion engine systems, burners/oxidizers, air cleaners, and combustors. Primary customers include manufacturers of aerospace and defense systems, fuel cell systems, engines, gas turbines, chemicals, oil and gas producers and the US Government. PCI operates in a modern 38,000 square foot facility in North Haven, Connecticut, USA. The site contains catalyst coating and reactor manufacturing areas as well as multiple test rigs supported by an experienced technician and machining team. PCI uses its own broad range of proprietary catalyst formulations and coating technologies with appropriate catalyst supports, supported by a wide range of advanced catalyst analytic equipment and techniques. Advanced computing support is provided with the use of a variety of supported and proprietary design and analysis software.
