Comparison of the Different Types of Combustor Chamber

Multiple Can/TubularMaintenanceWell suited to centrifugal compressor enginesIt can be individually removed for inspectionCompressor discharge air is equally dividedIncreased volume, weight, and frontal area Increased pressure dropsThe complex combustion process
AnnularUsed in both small and large engines Reduces the pressure loss Compact sizeLess structural integrity Difficult to obtain even temperature distribution Difficult development
Can Annular/ TuboannularReduced shaft length Easier maintenance and development Combines ease of overhaul and testing of the multiple can arrangement with the compactness of annular combustorIncreased volume, weight, and frontal area Increased pressure drops
