Title: Development of combustion data to utilize low-Btu gases as industrial process fuels. Project 61004 annual status report, October 1, 1977--September 30, 1978

Abstract

Combustion data have been collected for natural gas and three low-Btu gases fired on eight different burners. Tests have been completed with the forward-flow baffle burner, kiln burner, nozzle-mix burner, high-forward-momentum burner, flat-flame burner, high-excess-air burner, and premix tunnel burner. Tests are partially completed using the boiler burner. The low-Btu gases simulated for these tests are Koppers--Totzek oxygen, Wellman--Galusha air and Winkler air fuel gases. In each case the burners were mounted on a pilot-scale test furnace, and the firing density and water tube load were adjusted to simulate conditions for a typical burner application. The experimental results allow evaluation of the ease of retrofitting the burners to use the low-Btu gases and provide a comparison of burner and furnace performances with the various fuels.
