Combustion definition

Combustion means the burning of matter.
Combustion means any oxidation of fuels, regardless of the way in which the heat, electrical or mechanical energy produced by this process is used, and any other directly associated activities, including waste gas scrubbing;
Combustion means the treatment of solid waste in a device that uses heat as the primary means to change the chemical, physical, or biological character or composition of the waste. Combustion processes include incineration, gasification, and pyrolysis.

More Definitions of Combustion

Combustion means the chemical process of oxidation that occurs at a fast enough rate to produce heat and usually light in the form of either a glow or flame.
Combustion means the process of burning.
Combustion means the exothermic reaction of a fuel with oxygen; "Commissioner" means the Commissioner for the South African Revenue Service;
Combustion means any chemical process that involves oxidation sufficient to produce light or heat.
Combustion in distillation and conversion units is identified as the main energy consumer in refineries and, therefore, minimizing the fuel usage in their furnaces is one of the key activities to be addressed in terms of improving the energy efficiency at refineries. As an example, minimizing the fuel consumption is not only a matter of maximizing the furnace efficiency itself but also optimizing the preheat exchanger networks. All the technical typologies included in the energy efficiency projects category are devoted to reduce the energy consumption of our processes in the assets and therefore the associated GHG emissions. Category: Energy efficiency Description of the technical typologies:  Upgrade of equipment: Heat o Our facilities consume large amount of energy and this energy is produced in heat equipment as boilers, furnaces, etc. Their operation and improvement is a key issue in order to improve our energy performance. Examples: Implementation of oxygen control systems or heat recovery from flue gases.  Upgrade of equipment: Dynamic equipment o Fluids are moved using dynamic equipment as pumps, compressors, etc. They need a significant amount of energy to work. Examples: Implementation of variable speed motors or back pressure turbines instead of condensation turbines.  improvements of operating criteria o The way facilities are operated is key in order to reduce energy consumption.
