Caption: Figure 11: Effect of airflow temperature on the maximum temperature increase and maximum rate of temperature increase at combustor exit.
In addition, burning wood that has been painted, pressure treated, oiled, or impregnated with creosote can destroy the catalytic combustor. So can artificial logs, colored paper, and chemical chimney cleaners.
"In fact, one of the catalytics in our study performed just as well in a home as it had under ideal lab conditions, and that's rather remarkable." Experts now agree that a catalytic combustor in a well-designed stove can reduce pollution from that device by 90%.
This concept integrates a coal gasifier or pyrolyzer with the combustor to boost the gas turbine inlet temperatures to 1260 [degrees] C and the cycle efficiency to 47-50 percent.
Most turbine engines are produced on an effusion-cooled design which minimizes combustor liner cooling requirements while meeting the combustor wall temperature design limits.
This award will help fund a new program, which the company expects to launch in the fourth quarter this year, focusing on the design and integration of Xonon into a small, under 15 megawatt (MW), multiple combustor "multi-can" gas turbine.
Using this program, they developed a concept design in which hot gas from the combustor flows through the scroll to the turbine while cold gas from the compressor flows around the exterior surface of the scroll to the combustor.
MSgt Iseminger performed a follow-up review of these corrective actions and discovered that a borescope of the combustor had not been accomplished as the technical data directs.
Mitsubishi will take a 7pc share in the Trent 1000 project by supplying the engine's combustor and low-pressure turbine blades.
But after the air passes through the large fan, it is exposed to a series of blades that compress the air and push it into the combustor, where it is mixed with fuel and explodes, thus increasing its temperature.
'Half the powder will then go into a combustor, which generates the heat for the drying process, while the other half will go into a combustor that generates electricity towards powering the machine.
The fuel (brown coal 11 MJ/kg) is fed into the combustor by four screw feeders.
