A gas stream with a reduced oxygen concentration relative to ambient air is used to vaporize a liquid fuel or liquefied higher hydrocarbon gas, or is mixed with a vaporized gas, and the reduced oxygen vaporized fuel gas is fed to a combustion device such as a premixed or diffusion combustor. Preferably, the oxygen content of the gas stream is less than the limiting oxygen index. By mixing the fuel with a gas stream that has an appropriately reduced oxygen content, auto-ignition prior to the desired flame location in the combustor can be avoided. In some ...
What is claimed is: 1. A method for operating a combustion device, the method comprising the steps of: producing a fuel gas using a liquid fuel comprising hydrocarbon molecules and a diluent gas; premixing the fuel gas with a second gas containing oxygen to produce a gas mixture in a premixing zone located upstream of a combustion zone of a combustion device, the combustion device being configured such that autoignition of the gas mixture would occur upstream of the combustion zone in the absence of the diluent gas; and combusting the gas mixture in the...
