Abstract

A research has been done to observe the effect of varying the retainer angle on the performance of oil burner in terms of exhaust gas emissions and temperatures. Retainer was a flame stabilizer used to stabilize the flame, improve mixing between air and fuel and affect the formation of emissions such as carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), oxides of nitrogen (NOX), and sulfur dioxide (SO2). These emissions can cause harm to the world ecosystem. One of the methods to reduce emissions was by varying the retainer's blade angle to certain angle that complete the combustion with high efficiencies and less emissions. In this research, an oil burner with four different retainer angles has been investigated using a combustor of one meter length. Tests were conducted using diesel as feedstock. Four different retainer angles used are 15°, 30° (baseline), 45°, and 60° with swirl number 0.2016, 0.4344, 0.7524, and 1.3032. From the experiment, data shown that swirling flow affect the formation of recirculation zone thus provides the aerodynamics blockage to stabilize the flame and emissions reduced due to varying the retainer angles and the best retainer angle was achieved by consider the exhaust gas emission reduction.
