  • Patent number: 5067655
    Abstract: A whirl nozzle for atomizing a liquid has a whirl chamber rising above a whirl chamber bottom and tapering toward a nozzle outlet orifice opposite the bottom, at least one whirl channel laterally offset to a central axis of the whirl chamber and opening into the latter, and a whirl parameter of greater than 1, so as to permit an increase in the whirl input pulse at constant or reduced whirl losses. A displacement element rises above the whirl chamber bottom to prevent the formation of an air core in the region of the floor. The element is arranged concentrically about the central axis and the external diameter of the section nearer the floor is equal to at least one diameter of the nozzle outlet orifice. In one embodiment, the conical seating surface has a smaller apex angle than a section of the whirl chamber wall adjoining the nozzle outlet orifice. In another embodiment, the displacement element is provided with at least one eccentrically arranged reflux bore.

  • Patent number: 4692319
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method and apparatus for desulfurizing flue gas n fuel oil firing systems comprising a residual heat exchanger forming an acid condensate. A neutralizing agent is added to the acid condensate and the neutralized condensate recirculated to the residual heat exchanger for the purpose of dissolving sulfur dioxide. The apparatus for carrying out this method in a fuel oil firing system comprising a residual heat exchanger and a collecting tank for the condensate is provided with a pump and a tank filled with neutralizing agent which are both disposed in a condensate recirculation conduit leading from the collecting tank to the residual heat exchanger.
