Fuel flexibility will drive the energy demand in the near future. The use of different syngas compositions from various sources will play a major role in the global fuel mix. CO2 in the blends will also be added as a mechanism to improve carbon capture and storage technologies. However, this can trigger instabilities such as thermoacoustics, flashback, autoignition and blowoff. In terms of blowoff, the phenomenon is still not entirely understood. This project presents a series of experiments to determine the behaviour and impact on the blowoff process at various swirl numbers, nozzle geometries and gas compositions. The Central Recirculation Zone was analyzed just before blowoff. The results show how the strength and size of the recirculation zones are highly influenced by these parameters. However, it seems that the CRZ dimensions/strength does not play an important role in the blowoff, whilst the composition of the mixture shows high correlation. Nevertheless, the CRZ intensity using these compositions can increase residence time, important for combustion improvement of other blends.
