Title:
POROUS BURNER FOR GAS TURBINE APPLICATIONS
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2004013538
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
A burner including a porous element (12) is disclosed. The porous element may include an upstream section (112) and a downstream section (212). The porous element of the burner may be of a thickness that facilitates heat recirculation from the porous element to the incoming reactants, such that the incoming reactants are preheated prior to entering the porous element. Preheating of the incoming reactants may increase the firing rate of the burner. The flame may be stabilized such that substantially all of the combustion occurs within the pores.
