Substantial improvements to reduce emissions have been obtained by modifying conventional burner designs. However, to satisfy EPA and applicable local NO, emissions regulations without water or steam injection, an approach which avoids diffusion controlled combustion must be found. This paper describes an analytical design study conducted to integrate a lean, premixing, prevaporizing burner concept into a silo combustor which combines the benefits of the low emissions dry NO, system with those of the off board combustor design philosophy. This low emissions system permits a high degree of vaporization and homogeneity prior to combustion and ease of staging individual fuel injectors to cover the operating range of a single shaft gas turbine.
