Effect of Oxygen Concentration on Distributed Flame Regime

Richard Scenna, Ashwani K. Gupta


This work investigated the effect of oxygen concentrations in the reactor on the partial oxidation of JP8 under the distributed reaction condition. Reforming efficiency as high as 74% was achieved; syngas composition consisted of 20.7 to 22.3% hydrogen and 20.2 to 21.5% carbon monoxide. Reformate product distribution and quality was found to depend on the reactor oxygen concentrations and to a lesser extent on flame regime. Addition of oxygen enhanced the extent of reforming reactions, to promote increased conversion and reforming efficiency.
