Forney Corporation

- Liquid Fuel Duct Burners



Our Liquid Fuel Duct Burners inject fuel from the side of the duct to keep the fuel cool until it is burned. An “anchoring” baffle ensures the flame spans the duct to provide even heat distribution. Our patented technology ensures excellent mixing of the turbine exhaust gas and fuel, resulting in clean combustion with reduced CO emissions. Our design eliminates performance variations by using a small amount of external combustion air as opposed to burners that rely solely on turbine exhaust gas for their oxidant.

Forney utilizes a side-fired design for our oil duct burners.  This design has proven to be the most reliable over the life of the product and features:

  • Self-Checking Flame Detectors / Scanners
  • Patented mixing technology with customized baffles
  • Multi-Platform Burner Management Systems

Applications / Fuels

  • Light oil,
  • Biofuels, and
  • Blended fuel oils (upon review of fuel composition)
