Combustion Limits on Furnace Design
•The lower limit of the furnace volume is dominated by the spacerequired for burning the fuel completely, or •to an extent less than the allowable unburned fuel loss.•To complete the fuel combustion within the furnace space, the fuelinjected into the furnace has to reside there for a time longer thancritical time t
.•The fuel residence time can also be estimated by the residence time of the combustion gas produced in the furnace.•An average residence time t
can be proposed.
