The present invention relates to an improved combustion and utilization of the fuel gases. In one preferred example of implementation of the described methods and apparatus that use gases from mines, from organic waste and the like, to the expression "fuel gas" should be understood as the combustible gas, such as methane or melanostigma gases, such as natural gas, coal gas, gas from organic waste, gas, sewage and similar gases and gases containing carbon monoxide, gases such as blast furnaces, steel industry, power gas, etc., These combustible gases may also contain impurities such as nitrogen, carbon dioxide and air. In some cases, for example in the case of mine ventilation air, gases can be greatly rare and the value of such a combustible gas with air must be either below the lower explosive limit, or above the highest of the lower explosive limit of the mixture. In addition, the "fuel gas" may include a mixture with the target admixture of air with combustible gas.

In this context, the fuel gas supplied to the combustion chamber, according to the present invention should be understood as a mixture of combustible gas (gas) and air, which is below the lower explosive limit of this mixture.

Prior art

Many low-quality fuels such as blast furnace gas, and very sparse flue gases, for example containing methane ventilation air coal mines, siegesgesang with the extremely high cost of the adopted technologies, and/or the unavailability of appropriate technologies and cheap equipment that ensure commercial fuel use. In order to use this type of fuel, you want to compress a huge number of these fuel gases and mass flow stage compression and expansion of a gas turbine, and associated problems of incineration such that the gas turbine standard designs cannot be used.

Another problem of using gas turbines to sparse utilization of the fuel gases is that essentially all of the gas must be compressed to the pressure exceeding the pressure of the combustion turbine to supply it to the turbine as fuel, and this compression requires expensive equipment and high energy consumption.

In coal mines, saturated gas, the methane gas can be removed portion of the total number of methane in Carboniferous reservoir in the development of the underground way, while this part is a stream of fuel gas methane mixed with air and other contaminating impurities, such as carbon dioxide. The ratio of methane such technology is usually entilation the air shaft. The content of methane in the ventilation air in these mines typically ranges from 0.8 to 1.0%. It was proposed to use this gas, which is otherwise not used in gas turbines, in whole or as part supplied to the turbine of the air. Although it was found that a modern and highly efficient gas turbines are not suitable for such a mode, as needed total fuel ratio of methane and air to such turbines typically greater than 2% and usually closer to 3%, so that even if the feed methane in air mixture containing methane, can burn, and even with a volumetric concentration of methane in the air in quantities of 1% will be provided for approximately only one third of the needs of turbine fuel. In such a turbine can be used effectively the flow of gas from such mines, even if the problems are resolved combustion, and the gas obtained during the drainage of mines, will be used as additional fuel.

Another problem of using threads such sparse fuel gas is that modern turbine high power typically used by more than 15% of the total air flow for cooling and purging. Therefore, a significant part me and wasted. In addition, it is known that methane, bypassing the stage of combustion and added to the flow of gaseous product of combustion, at intermediate temperatures can form active radicals, such as methylhydroxylamine radicals, which contribute to the conversion of nitrogen oxides formed in the stage of combustion, toxic and pronounced nitrogen dioxide.

Some of the crude gases, such as gases, obtained after processing of wastewater, treatment of organic waste gases from coal seams and other similar gases may contain a high concentration of carbon dioxide in excess of 70% by volume. The combustion of such gases is very difficult, if not impossible, in conventional gas turbines and other combustion systems.

In an article entitled "Elimination of methane emissions from coal mines" (journal of the Australian Institute of Energy from June 1992), written by the author of the present invention, it has been proposed to apply the methane containing ventilation air coal mines, gas turbines, however, this assumption was made before they understand all the associated problems mentioned above. Then it was proposed to use in the turbine, as well as a special control valve to change the amount of air for dilution to ensure the safe operation of the turbine, if the methane in the ventilation air exceeds the highest level. This proposed system also presented a problem, as it was relatively complex, and due to the fact that turbine, without security, works with methane content in the air is approximately 3% or above by incomplete combustion. It would be unacceptably close to the lower explosive limit of methane in air.

Another problem is that if the mixture of fuel gas in air should be provided for sucking in a gas turbine or feed into the combustion chamber, and the mixture must be below the lower explosive limit explosive mixture will be in an unstable state at the point of mixing. For gas turbines and large industrial installations desirable small pressure drop in the stage of mixing, and the risk and magnitude of any possible explosion should be minimal, despite the huge volumes of air and fuel gas required for gas turbines and industrial furnaces.

Despite the benefits of recycling exhaust gas

Mainly the formation of nitrogen oxides (NOX) during combustion of the fuel gases is a common problem with a wide range of heating systems, such as commercial and industrial combustion chambers, furnaces, gas turbines, and so on, In many cases, the required temperature of the flue gases formed in the combustion process is much lower than the flame temperature of combustion gas, however, the level of NOX in the product gas is determined by the temperature of the flame, not the final temperature of the mixed gases. Typical of this problem that the combustion of fuel in gas turbines, where the flue gases are required at temperatures of about 850oC to 1200oC, but where NOX levels are determined by the condition of the flame in the combustion chamber, even with very modern designs of burners, which should reduce NOX in the exhaust gases to the number below 20 parts per million, a reduction of NOX emissions to below 10 parts per million is considered to be achievable only with the use of very specific combustion systems, such as catalytic devices.

In catalytic combustion systems are commonly used catalysts based on noble metals such as platinum and palladium, which are tradedata in some fuel gases, one example of this is the presence of silanes in organic waste gases.

The following issue combustion occurs when there is a mixture of gaseous fuel and air and the fuel level in the air below the lower Flammability limit of the mixture, and therefore the combustion is not possible with conventional, currently available non-catalytic technology, without the necessary additional fuel to initiate and maintain combustion.

It is known to use air that has been contaminated by hydrocarbons in gas turbines for combustion of contaminants and use it as part of the fuel of the turbine, but usually only where the contaminating impurity is a small part of the fuel. This technology is used mainly to reduce the allocation of contaminants and cannot easily be used to provide a significant part of the demand of the gas turbine fuel, when the conventional gas turbines, due to the fact that conventional combustion chambers have certain limitations.

The closest analogue of the claimed group of inventions is the United Kingdom patent N 989054, CL F 23 C 11/00, 1965, from which a known combustion chamber DoD, a method of burning fuel gases, the gas turbine system for the disposal of fuel gas for power generation, the method of disposal of the fuel gas in a gas turbine to produce useful energy. The known method does not solve the above problems.

High temperature along with the amount of high-temperature combustion zone 8 provides the necessary time for the reaction and samoshomana fuel gas due to reactions caused by free radicals. Combustion thus t is th pairs. Eliminate the need to provide a flame for combustion means that there will be obtained a low content of NOX compounds, for example, up to < 5 ppm.

In one example implementation, the combustion chamber 2 is used to autofocus turbine, where is the fuel, such as methane, is fed into the turbine together with the incoming air. Turbine has the following dimensions and characteristics:

the feed gas flow of the air/methane - 17,4 kg/sec

the inlet temperature of the air/methane - 400oC

the temperature of the combustion product gas at the outlet - 850oC

the inner diameter of the combustion chamber - 1,190 mm

the analysis is saturated with water at a temperature of 24oC and atmospheric pressure of 1.6% methane (vol/vol dry basis) 98.4% of air (vol/vol dry basis)

Tubular plate 4 and the partition wall 10 is also made of alloy Sandvik 253 MA. External (high temperature) pipe surface can be covered with a ceramic oxide, such as Mullite.

The combustion chamber, described above, is also used in gas turbines, furnaces for refining and other industrial furnaces.

In another example, reality impregnated with known catalysts, as for example, Nickel, melanostigma fuels, or known catalysts based on zinc oxide for fuels containing carbon monoxide.

The following is an example implementation of the invention will be described with reference to figure 4, in relation to the use of ventilation air coal mine from polluting admixture of methane gas from the mine drainage, which shows the gas turbine 100 General type. The degree of compression of the gas turbine 102 is connected with the expansion step 104 the drive shaft 108. In turn, the stage 104 is connected to an electric generator 106 as the drive shaft 110. The output power of the generator 106 is the energy obtained from mine ventilation air and gas from the drainage, and may be fed into the electrical network, representing thus its commercial value.

Ventilation air coal mine with a mixture of methane passes through the inlet pipe 250 to the device for mixing 112, which is then added an adjustable amount of gas from the dewatering of the mine supplied to another input pipe 252. The mixture then passes through the outlet pipe 254 under the influence of suction by the compressor 102 of the gas turbine.

Perator 116, in which it is heated by way of heat exchange and passes through pipe 258 in the combustion chamber 114. The combustion chamber 114 has a construction in accordance with the description of figures 1-3b, and for this example, in accordance with the description of the following example. Hot (flue) gases leaving the combustion chamber 114, pass through pipe 262 to the expansion step 104.

The exhaust gas from the expansion stage 104 exits through the outlet pipe 264 to pass through the heat exchanger 116, and the cooled waste gases then leave the heat exchanger 116 through the outlet pipe 266 to the atmosphere.

Exhaust cooled gas turbine can flow into the boiler after exiting the heat exchanger 116 to produce steam for cooling turbine disks, bearings and other parts of the turbine, which is usually cooled by air from a compressor of the turbine, resulting in all or almost all of the air is mixed with methane (fuel gas), sucked into the turbine, passes through the combustion system.

Ignition fuel for the turbine, in this case, the distillate fuel is fed into the combustion chamber 114 through line 260 together with air for the burner which is supplied through another pipe 268.

In most SL what are the Main changes of the loads can be shut down individual turbines, and some changes in the target turbine load can be performed by changing the temperature set for gas emerging from the combustion chamber 114 in the output pipe 262. Load changes can also be made by changing the rate of flow of fuel through the turbine by using known means, such as the use of variable inlet vanes built into the compressor 102 and the expansion step.

In the following preferred embodiment of this invention, in a gas turbine 100 shown in figure 4, essentially all of its fuel requirements are the submission of methane in the incoming air and the regulated discharge of the fuel gas into the suction stream of the compressor 102. Such turbines, such as Westinghouse CW191 PG and Solav Centaur 400 R, both of which are not currently produced, as well as turbine General Electric Frame-1, Frame 2 and Frame 5, which are considered old and outdated designs, ideal for use in implementations of the invention.

Listed turbine models with modifications, involving the incorporation of the described combustion chamber 114, will not work with methane content in the intake air in excess of 2.0% of the amount that the significance of relacionado air shaft, turbine itself becomes an effective regulatory tool that is parallel to and independent of any regulatory analytical tools or other safety devices used in the mines.

Figures 6a and 6b show details of the construction of the pipeline, where the incoming ventilation air mines and gas from the mine drainage is mixed in the mixing device 112. Figure 6a depicts a view in cross section along the line A-a as shown in figure 6b. Tube 250 includes many located at a distance from one another, upright hollow pipe 150, which are mutually connected by upper and lower connecting tubes 152, 154. The top tube 152 receives the feed gas from the mine drainage from the input pipe 252 for filing down the vertical pipe 150. As best seen from figure 7, each of the vertical pipes 150 is a group of small holes 160 in the perimeter from which the fuel gas from draining out to be mixed with the ventilation air of the mine. The space between adjacent tubes functions like a mixer of Venturi type, and speed of gas and air at the point of discharge of the fuel gas are to prevent mode

An example implementation of the invention shown in figure 5, based on the use of turbine Solav Centaur 3000 R. In this example, the turbine speed regulation is achieved by varying the power generator 106 and the speed of gas fed to the turbine system through the inlet pipe 252 to regulate the supply of gas in order to maintain the specified temperature range for the temperature at the outlet of the combustion chamber into the outlet pipe 262. The speed of flow of the components of the mine are 13,306 N. m3/air, 0,134 N. m3/with methane and 0,403 N. m3/with water vapor. The rate of flow of the gas components from the dewatering of the mine is of 0.081 N. m3/s of methane, of 0.081 N. m3/with air and 0.005 N. m3/with water vapor. Unit N. m3/s means "normal cubic meters per second, i.e., the well-known unit of measurement speed flow compared with 0oC and standard pressure. The degree of compression is the compression ratio less than 14:1, and preferably less than 10:1. The ratio of concentration of the compressed fuel gas to the air must be below the lower explosive limit, and in this example is 1.6% (volume), and preferably in the range from 1.5% to 2%. The dwell time inside the. the temperature at the outlet of the gaseous combustion products most preferably should be in the range of from 850 to 950oC, while the highest limit is 1100oC. the resulting temperature of the fuel gases from the combustion chamber 114 approximately 870oC, while the temperature of the flue gas from the compressor 104 is 455oC. Produced by the energy generator 106 is 2420 kW.

The speed of the gas fed into the combustion chamber 114 via the inlet pipe 260, indicates the amount of methane in the ventilation air in the feed line 250 and a suitable warning device, indicating low gas flow or high temperature combustion will stop the turbine and will indicate the presence of abnormal and dangerous conditions in the ventilation system of the mine.

In the following example implementation of the invention, the gas turbine 100 may be used for combustion gases of metallurgical plants containing carbon monoxide by means of suction air in the suction zone of the turbine. Part of the energy produced is used directly or indirectly to compress air for the purpose of separating oxygen for metallurgical operations and air separation. Then can be air, freedoms is walking in the system combustion turbine mixture of fuel and air, sucked into the turbine.

In yet another example implementation of the invention using a gas turbine, the air and fuel gas discharged from the compressor can be put into contact with water to saturation and additional cooling of the mixture of air and fuel, and water can serve as waste water or industrial waste water and the like, the volume of which is reduced, as at least part of the components that cause the smell, will be delivered into the combustion chamber for burning.
