Abstract (en)

Preferably for the combustion chamber of a gas turbine installation, the device atomises liquid fuel, with liquid fuel passing under pressure through a nozzle arrangement, where it is atomised to form a spray. The nozzle arrangement has separate outlet apertures (3) so directed that the fuel sprays (5,6) emitted from them collide. The nozzle arrangement has a slot nozzle with an enclosed aperture (10) surrounded by a deflectior device which deflects an emitted fuel spray so that it convergently runs together in a narrowly limited volume area (7). The nozzle aperture is circular so that the spray (14) is formed as a hollow cone running to a point.

Abstract (de)

Beschrieben wird ein Verfahren sowie eine Vorrichtung zur Zerstäubung flüssigen Brennstoffs für eine Feuerungsanlage, vorzugsweise für eine Brennkammer einer Gasturbinenanlage, mit einer Düsenanordnung, durch die der flüssige Brennstoff druckbeaufschlagt hindurchtritt und zu einem Brennstoffspray zerstäubt wird. Die Erfindung zeichnet sich dadurch aus, daß nach Durchtritt des Brennstoffes durch die Düsenanordnung (3, 4) wenigstens zwei, räumlich getrennte Brennstoffsprays (5, 6) gebildet werden, in denen der Brennstoff vorwiegend in Form einzelner Brennstofftröpfchen (16) vorliegt, und daß die Brennstoffsprays (5, 6) jeweils eine Ausbreitungsrichtung zueinander aufweisen, so daß die Brennstofftröpfchen (16) eines Brennstoffsprays (5) mit den Brennstofftröpfchen (16) des anderen Brennstoffsprays (6) kollidieren, so daß bei der Kollision der Brennstofftröpfchen (16) eine Tröpfchenwolke (9) mit neuen Brennstofftröpfchen (17) gebildet wird, deren Durchmesser kleiner als der der kollidierenden Brennstofftröpfchen (16) ist. <IMAGE>
