Abstract

The objective of this paper is to explore the significant factors for primary aeration in atmospheric gas burners. Historically linear relationships have been used to estimate primary aeration with a design’s geometry and features. With a given heating output a burners geometry is designed to meet safety, efficiency, reliability and customers’ expectations. This paper explores the significant factors and how they interact with primary aeration. Experimentally exploring, port area, port loading, injector axial position, injection angle and the throat diameter interaction with port area. The structure creates an outline for atmospheric burner design.
