Burner Operational Tips on Atomization

Oil must be temperature-controlled to the design viscosity at the burner. For proper combustion, fuel oil has to be broken up onto small droplets to vaporize and burn. If the oil is too viscous, the atomizer inside the oil gun … Continue reading

Operating Burner Outside the Specific Gravity Range

Don’t expect satisfactory operation outside the design specific gravity range. This is undoubtedly the most common mistake when firing gas. Natural draft burners depend on the momentum of the fuel jets to give good fuel-air mixing. For hydrocarbon gases, the … Continue reading

Burner Operation – General Considerations

Air, mixing, and (for oil firing) atomization are the keys to good burner performance. Even the best designed burner performs poorly when fired with any one of the following deficiencies: • Too little combustion air • Not enough air-fuel mixing … Continue reading
