This paper describes the results of tests to determine the effects of steam injection on the production of nitric oxide in gas turbine combustors. When the steam injected into the compressor discharge was 2 percent of the total air flow, the oxides of nitrogen were reduced to 50 percent of what they were with no steam injection for a given load in a gas fired machine. When the steam flow was increased to 4 percent the oxides of nitrogen dropped to 25 percent of the value with no steam.
