Precaution For Experimental Study of Laminar Jet Diffusion Flame

Posted by Prof D P Mishra

  • Ensure that the fuel line is leak proof.
  • Experiments should be conducted in a ventilated room. Keep a fire extinguisher near the experimental setup.
  • Switch on the exhaust fan before conducting experiments.
  • Ensure that the control valves are functioning properly.
  • The fuel flow rate has to be set to a minimum value initially using the control valve and ignited at the burner exit with the help of naked flame.
  • The fuel supply has to be stopped when the fuel jet is not getting ignited for a longer time. Then the burner has to be purged with nitrogen to avoid accumulation of unburnt fuel getting ignited in an uncontrolled way.

  • Ensure that there is no leakage in the fuel line.
  • Turn on the exhaust fan before starting the experiment.
  • Check whether the valves are functioning properly.
  • In case of flash-back, increase the air flow rate instantly.
  • After completing the experiment, turn off the valve in the fuel cylinder without fail.
  • Hood should be used for evacuation of the exhaust gas.
  • Keep the fire extinguisher (in operating condition) nearby the experimental setup.
