Title: An Analysis of Advanced Manufacturing for Innovative Burner Nozzle Design

Abstract

Utilizing the Arcam electron beam melting powder bed process, fuel nozzles designed by GTI and not manufacturable by traditional manufacturing techniques were produced. The fuel nozzles resulted in a 50% reduction in emissions and efficiency improvement. The goal of this project was to assess the cost and performance benefits of utilizing selected Additive Manufacturing (AM) approaches to fabricate an advanced premix nozzle for use in commercial burner applications that can only be manufactured by advanced AM methods, and which offers the potential for increased component performance.
