The information reported here results from a recently completed ASHRAE sponsored research project, RP-682, called "Combustion of Ammonia, With and Without Oil." In this project, literature concerning ammonia combustion was reviewed, experiments were performed measuring the flammability of ammonia-air mixtures with and without lubricating oil, and a specially fabricated ammonia oxidizer was operated under a wide variety of conditions where the operation and exhaust emissions were monitored. The results of this project are reported fully in ASHRAE technical papers and the project's final report.
