The present work investigates the effect of the addition of water in the form of an emulsion on the combustion of heavy oil. Tests burning neat oil and oil/8% water emulsions are conducted in a large laboratory furnace (0.33 MW thermal input). The effect of the water addition is analyzed by a detailed characterization of the flames as well as of the gaseous and solid emissions.
