Rig testing of a lean-premixed, liquid-fueled corabustor was conducted to establish the feasibility of achieving ultra-low NOx emissions at typical gas turbine operating conditions. Two different filming fuel injector concepts were evaluated.

The majority of combustor testing was conducted using No. 2 diesel. The test results showed 12 and 20 ppm NOx at 6 and 9 atm, respectively. Corresponding CO levels were 50 ppm in both cases.
