Patent Number: 6,168,422

Title: Gas incinerator

Abstract: There is provided a gas incinerator having a combustion chamber above a lower chamber and communicating therewith. Combustion air flows into the lower chamber, thence upwardly toward the combustion chamber. Vanes are provided in the lower chamber, to impart a rotational movement to the air as it rises toward the combustion chamber. Nozzles are located toward the bottom of the combustion chamber for injecting the fuel, in the form of gas, into the combustion chamber so as to cause the injected gas to rotate oppositely to the air rotation, in order to provide substantial turbulence and mixing. The injection direction of the gas also lies substantially parallel with a hypothetical plane transverse to the axis of the cyclonic movement of air, thus avoiding an axial component in the injection direction of the gas, and therefore minimizing the expulsion of gas, air and combustion products from the combustion chamber.
