  • Patent number: 8122726
    Abstract: A combustion chamber of a combustion system has a combustion space, a support structure, a support element, and a heat shield. The heat shield has at least two segments, and each segment includes a liner element facing the combustion space and has an edge region, a gap communicating with the combustion space being formed between edge regions of adjacent segments, and a retaining device. The retaining device fixes the respective liner element on the support structure via the support element and forms a flange region that fits over the edge region of the respective liner element. The retaining device forms a first cooling passage with the support element and has at least one through-opening in the flange region. A cooling gas flows through the through.opening from the first cooling passage to the edge region.

  • Patent number: 8006498
    Abstract: A combustion chamber of a combustion system comprises a combustion space, a support structure, a heat shield, and at least one through-opening. The heat shield has at least two segments, and each segment has an edge region, a gap communicating with the combustion space being formed between edge regions of adjacent segments, and a retaining device. The adjacent segments include a support element disposed in a bottom region of the gap. The retaining device fixes the respective liner element on the support structure via the respective support element. The at least one through-opening communicates with the gap so as to enable a cooling gas to flow through the through-opening. The at least one through-opening is disposed in at least one of the respective edge region and the support element at the bottom region of the gap.

  • Patent number: 7963764
    Abstract: A lance for a hybrid burner of a combustor of a gas turbine, includes an inner passage for a liquid fuel, an outer passage coaxially enclosing the inner passage for a gaseous fuel, a plurality of star like arranged outer nozzles branching off radially from the outer passage, a plurality of inner nozzles, which branch off radially from the inner passage and which each extend coaxially inside one of the outer nozzles, and a distributor section, which is arranged upstream of the outer nozzles in the outer passage and has a plurality of star like arranged, coaxially extending through-openings for the gaseous fuel. In order to reduce the flow resistance in the gas path of the lance, the through-openings each have an opening width which is larger in the circumferential direction than in the radial direction.

  • Publication number: 20100083854
    Abstract: A method for starting up a web-fed printing machine, in which a web to be printed on is guided through at least one printing gap formed by a printing cylinder and a counter printing cylinder of the web-fed printing machine; the printing cylinder accelerates to a print-on speed (Nprint-on) in a position retracted from the web and is applied to the web; and at least during a partial phase of the acceleration of the printing cylinder, the web is stationary or is conveyed at an initial speed (Nin) which is lower than the current speed of the printing cylinder.

    Abstract: A process and device are provided for setting the crop mark for and/or in a print production, in which prints are continuously printed on a web. At least one printing couple for printing on a web is provided. A lengthwise cutting device cuts the web into a first web strand and at least one second web strand. A converging device is provided for converging the first web strand with at least the second web strand and/or at least one other web strand to form a bundle. A cross-cutting device cuts the bundle. A crop mark setting device is provided with at least one deflecting device for each of the web strands of the bundle. The deflecting devices form a deflection axis for the web strand of the bundle, the web strand being associated with it. The deflecting device is mounted movably such that the particular deflection axis formed is adjustable at right angles to an axial direction by a maximum adjusting path length.

  • Patent number: 6688111
    Abstract: A combustion chamber includes a mixing zone and a combustion zone within which self-ignition of a fuel and air mixture can occur. Fuel and support air are injected laterally at the sidewall of the mixing zone into hot gases passing through the mixing zone. The operating range of the combustion chamber can be increased while noxious substances are reduced by injecting differently controlled fuel/support air mixture jets into different target spaces within the mixing zone.

  • Publication number: 20030093997
    Abstract: In a combustion chamber (1) that consists of a mixing zone (11) and a combustion zone (12) and which works due to self-ignition, fuel (3) and support air (4) are injected laterally at the sidewall (6) of the mixing zone (11) into hot gases (5). By injecting differently controlled fuel/support air mixture jets (7) into different target spaces within the mixing zone (11), the operating range of the combustion chamber (1) can be increased while noxious substances are reduced. The invention relates both to the combustion chamber (1) as well as to the method for operating this combustion chamber (1).
