combustion

 [kom-bus´chun]
rapid oxidation with emission of heat.

com·bus·tion

(kom-bŭs'chŭn),
Burning, the rapid oxidation of any substance accompanied by the production of heat and light.
[L. comburo, pp. -bustus, to burn up]

combustion

/com·bus·tion/ (kom-bus´chun) rapid oxidation with emission of heat.

combustion

[kəmbus′chen]
the process of burning or oxidation, which may be accompanied by light and heat. Oxygen itself does not burn, but it supports combustion. The rate of combustion is influenced by both oxygen concentration and its partial pressure.

There are two exceptions, either of which allow chillers and boilers to be in the same room: if the boiler uses combustion air ducted from outside the machinery room and if the boiler is sealed in such a manner to prevent any refrigerant leakage from entering the combustion chamber; or if the combustion process is automatically shut down on detection of refrigerant.
3) With VFDs installed on the FD fans, the amount of combustion air was more accurately controlled especially under lower firing rate, about more than 80% of the FD fan power was saved.
With before mentioned combustion air excess coefficient [alpha] = 20%, the actual combustion air volume becomes:
In this furnace, the bagasse particles are preheated by the combustion air coming from the grate as soon as they enter the combustion chamber from the spreaders.
But, this scenario leaves us with no control over how much combustion air is supplied to the fire.
Combustion air in CFB boilers can be divided into three categories: primary air, secondary air, and high-pressure air.
However, two factors have thus far prevented cost-effective, real-time oxygen sensing inside combustion chambers: 1) the high cost of providing external reference air for sensors to compare combustion air to, and 2) the lack of a durable high temperature device capable of withstanding temperatures up to 1600[degrees] C.
The revised model provides a tool for predicting the fireside effects of upgrading combustion air systems.
These measures include installation of unitary air-handlers for combustion air utilizing a dedicated chiller and low-pressure clean steam generator and cell ventilation air handlers.
Readily accessible and easy to service The combustion air, compressed in the axial flow compressor, enters the combustion chamber through the holes made in the liner and flows along the liner itself to keep it cool.
A more recent strategy," High Pressure Stratified Charge Start," injects all of the fuel into the cylinder at high pressure just before ignition, when combustion air is at more than l00[degrees]C.
Combustion air never comes in contact with process or regeneration air.
