Components Of Jet Engines - Major Components - Combustors
... Combustors typically employ structures to give a sheltered combustion zone called a flame holder ... Combustor configurations include can, annular, and can-annular ... to quench the exit temperature of the combustor to an acceptable level (an overall mixture ratio of between 451 and 1301 is used) ...
Combustor - Types - Annular
... The final, and most commonly used, the type of combustor is the fully annular combustor ... Annular combustors do away with the separate combustion zones and simply have a continuous liner and casing in a ring (the annulus) ... There are many advantages to annular combustors, including more uniform combustion, shorter size (therefore lighter), and less surface area ...
Combustor - Ramjets
... One major difference is the lack of rotating machinery (a turbine) after the combustor ... The combustor exhaust is directly fed to a nozzle ... This allows ramjet combustors to burn at a higher temperature ...
CFM International CFM56 - Design - Combustor
... An annular combustor is a continuous ring where fuel is injected into the airflow and ignited, raising the pressure and temperature of the flow ... Other types of combustors include can combustors, where each combustion chamber is separate, and canannular which is a hybrid of the two ... In 1989, CFMI began work on a new, double-annular combustor ...
Combustor - Types - Can
... Can combustors are self-contained cylindrical combustion chambers ... Can type combustors were most widely used in early gas turbine engines, owing to their ease of design and testing (one can test a single can, rather than have to test the whole system) ... Can type combustors are easy to maintain, as only a single can needs to be removed, rather than the whole combustion section ...
