Abstract

 

Mixtures of a fuel and pure oxygen are used in various industrial processes. Especially in processes where a high heat generation is needed, oxy-fuel combustion is commonly used. One of the processes where a high heat input is needed is the heating and melting of (quartz) glass for the production of lamps. For this purpose, hydrogen+oxygen and methane+oxygen flames in an impinging jet like configuration are often applied. A one-dimensional numerical study was initiated to study the heat transfer from laminar oxy-fuel flames to glass. In this paper, the heat transfer rate

of a methane-oxygen flame is compared to the heat transfer rate of a hydrogen-oxygen flame. Thermodynamic and chemistry phenomena are taken into account
