A conventional diffusion-flame combustor and a two-stage combustor, both made of ceremics, were tested using various fuels.

In both combustors, CO, HC and smoke emission were extremely low even when using heavy-B fuel because of higher than normal inlet temperature of up to 1200 K; however, a great amount of NOx emission was observed in the conventional diffusion-flame combustor. When low-nitrogen fuels such as kerosene were used, a successful reduction of NOx was achieved by providing lean combustion in an improved diffusion-flame combustor. For high-nirogen fuels, the conversion fraction of fuel nitrogen to NOx could be minimized by keeping the equivalence ratio slightly rich in the first stage of the two-stage combustor.
