- The pressure-atomizing unit that receives fuel under high pressure from the fuel manifold and delivers it to the combustor in a highly atomized, and precisely patterned spray. The fuel is sprayed from the jet nozzle in such a way that the flame is always centered in the burner and, hence, does not overheat it.Duplex fuel nozzle spray pattern.
