HC Deb 16 March 1978 vol 946 cc303-4W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what thermal efficiency and saving of fuel is likely to be achieved by using vortometric burners for the combustion of hydrocarbon liquid or gaseous fuels.

Dr. John Cunningham

The vortometric burner can burn hydrocarbon liquid and gases at near stoichiometric proportions of air and thus can attain the highest levels of combustion efficiency. The actual amount of energy which can be saved depends upon the application in which the burner is used, and in many cases significant savings could result.
