Catalytic combustion experiments were performed with steam injected along with fuel into the inlet airstream in a 12 cm diameter duct. It was shown that steam apparently acts only as a diluent when added to a catalytic combustion system. It has no adverse effect on combustion performance or emissions. The results suggested that for some conditions steam injection may improve performance, probably by improving fuel atomization and distribution.
