dc.description.abstractConcept feasibility of an innovative technology for glass production has recently been demonstrated. It is based on suspension heating of the glass-forming batch minerals while entrained in a combustion flow of preheated air and natural gas. This results in excellent thermal coupling to the particles, control of thermal NOx formation, and low heat loss to the small exposed wall surface. This two phase flow is accelerated and the partially fused particles separated on an impactor surface, where they react to from glass. Combustor technology for this system requires stable, uniform, and complete combustion in a two phase flow consisting of about 50 percent solids. This imposes constrains on flameholding and propagation.en
