The Dumas combustion method, on the other hand, relies on the release of nitrogen through complete combustion. At its inception, this method suffered from problems with incomplete combustion of samples causing imprecise, inaccurate results.
The stoichiometric oxygen/fuel mass ratio [r.sub.0] is readily calculated for complete combustion (Eq.
The more complete combustion of diesel fuel when hydrogen is injected results in burning off the excess carbon that has been a limiting factor in the lifespan of two-cycle engines.
"It actively introduces very small amounts of nano-ceria catalyst materials during fueling that is homogeneously dispersed in the fuel to promote complete combustion of particulate matter at lower combustion temperature."
and European Union slated to kick in as early as 2004 (and cut emissions by nearly half) are forcing makers of large capacity diesel engines for Class 7 and 8 vehicles to improve volumetric efficiency for more complete combustion. This means a significant increase in inlet pressure and temperature (from an average of 190[degrees]C today to an estimated 246[degrees]C).
The design of the fireplaces ensures complete combustion and minimal smoke emissions, which means better air not only outside, but inside too--a boon to those with allergies.
Hot combustion gases flow up through the slag screen and final heated air is added to complete combustion.
MTBE is used in industrial engines as it enables complete combustion of fuel, while reducing knocking in the engine, thereby improving lifespan of machinery.
MPI mixes fuel and air earlier, enabling complete combustion in the chamber for greater efficiency at low engine loads.
The cyclones that have been delivered are particularly important core components of CFB boilers and help to effectively recirculate combustion exhaust gas (flue gas) to ensure the reliable, slow and complete combustion of difficult-to-burn fuels such as the high moisture lignite coal found in Thar.
These fixed ratios ensure the combustion in these applications is as efficient as possible by optimising the excess air such that there is enough oxygen to support complete combustion, ensuring that carbon monoxide (CO) is not produced, but not too much that energy is wasted by exhausting hot combustion gases up the flue to atmosphere.
Nano-Jet's proprietary design breaks down the molecular clusters which naturally exist in the fuel into single molecules and polarizes those molecules to enable a more complete combustion of the fuel/air mix.
