To reduce NOx emissions significantly, a catalytic combustor was developed. Full scale tests of catalytic combustors designed for application in Kawasaki S1A-O2 type gas trubines were conducted. The combustor consisted of a pre-combustion zone, a premixing zone, a catalytic combustion zone, and a variable geometry dilution zone. Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) was burned in combustor rig tests and results indicated low NOx emissions and high combustion efficiencies over a wide range of air/fuel ratios and that the catalytic combustor can be applied to the engine tests.
