Research of the Atomization Characteristics of Low Pollution Air Blast Nozzle


Article Preview

Atomization characteristic has great impact about combustion efficiency, ignition performance, and outlet temperature field of combustor. Obtained atomization characteristic about spray particle size and spray cone angle using LDV/PDPA system and the relevant software. The results indicated: particle size decrease rapidly with increasing air and tends to stabilize, Spray cone angle does not change with the air pressure. These experimental data have provided reliable basis for the nozzle group design, development and operation.
