    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Describes oil burning installations for land and marine purposes. Installations may comprise single or multiple arrangement of atomizing type burners and associated equipment that is not assembled on the same frame or in the same housing. Installations are for use with liquid fuels as specified in BS 2869 or Alternative Liquid Fuels (ALF) with similar characteristics. Reference to oil burners, oil heaters, etc. implies use with either liquid fuel. Excludes gas turbines and internal combustion engines.
