Abstract:

The Navys fire fighting training facilities include burning diesel oil which results in a multitude of chemicals and present pollution and health hazard problems. A possible solution is replacement of diesel fuel with a relatively clean burning gaseous fuel. To determine this feasibility, stack gas measurements were made from a 4 million btu per hour gas burner facility under a fire fighting training environment. The concentrations of stack gases were found to be sensitive to various test parameters including air-fuel ratio primary air, stack exhaust size and draft inlet openings secondary air. These concentrations were determined as controllable and within acceptable safe limits for fire fighting training application.
