Class Information
Number: 60/732
Name: Power plants > Combustion products used as motive fluid > Combustion products generator > Having initial fuel-rich combustion zone
Description: Device having a plurality of combustion zones distinguished by the fuel-oxidizer ratio supplied to each zone for combustion therein, and wherein an amount of fuel in excess of that required for stoichiometric combustion is supplied to a first fuel-rich zone for combustion, and to the product of that combustion, and downstream of the first zone, additional fuel or air is added for combustion at one or more locations in what is considered an additional zone or zones whereby the total combustion process of the device is staged.
