Abstract:

A description is given of an atomizer for gas turbines. It is a modification of existing liquid fuel atomizers incorporating a plug with tangential swirl grooves. To retain the quality of the spray under various loads the grooved plug is made of an elastic material. The plug compresses under an increased fuel pressure and forms an opening through which fuel also passes to the nozzle.
