AbstractThe destruction of nitric oxide (NO) in overall fuel lean axial diffusion flames of natural gas and air doped with NO has been investigated in order to test the applicability of this flame type for a combined reburning and fuel burnout stage. Reynolds numbers, based on burner conditions, were varied between 500 and 3000 for the fuel stream and between 1100 and 6750 for the air stream, so that laminar as well as turbulent diffusion flames could be studied. In addition, the following parameters were also varied: concentration of NO in the incoming combustion air, velocity difference between the reactant jets, overall stoichiometry, stand-off distance, and presence of additional species. NO reductions of more than 70% could be observed at an overall stoichiometric ration of 1.2, with only ca. 0.02% (dry) carbon monoxide in the exhaust.
