Abstract TAKUMA and the Institute of Gas Technology (IGT) have been developing a natural gas premixed and single-stage Cyclonic Burner for vacuum type hot water heater(Vacotin Heater). The tests were conducted from January 1996 to July 1997 at TAKUMA KYOTO PLANT in JAPAN using the 1.62 MW (5.5 X 10^6 Btu/h) test equipment. With the water cooled burner and the improved Gas/Air mixer adopted, the test result was such that the data showed NO x emissions being less than 30 ppm (O2 = 0% corrected), CO emission less than 10 ppm at 1.3 excess air ratio and the possibility of the combustion intensity 7 MW/m3 (390 Btu/in3h) or more at rated load. When compared with the conventional combustion, the cyclonic combustion shows higher convective heat transfer.
