A high-pressure facility capable for testing Lean Premixed Pre-vaporized (LPP) combustor geometries is reported. The proposed design enables the use of both single-point and whole-field non-intrusive measuring techniques when the combustor operates under conditions representative of gas turbines or jet engines operation, thereby enabling the complete characterization of the turbulent flow field that develops inside LPP combustors. The individual control of the air and fuel supplies, provided, respectively, by a number of industrial compressors and a specific LPG supply facility, allows the investigation of a wide range of operating conditions. In this paper, the facility specifications are explained and adequately justified. Preliminary results are presented, showing the suitability of the design.
