NOx and PM are the major product results from the combustion of diesel either in internal combustion engine or external burner system. Thus, the emulsification concept from diesel and water were studied with focusing in controlling of combustion process in order to minimize the harmful emission. The main purpose of this research is to investigate the effects of diesel-water emulsification on mixture formation, burning process and flame development in burner system. The studed parameters include equivalent ratio, water content in diesel-water emulsification and spray characteristics such as spray penetration length, spray angle and spray area. The spray image of different diesel-water ratio and equivalence ratio can be investigated by direct photography method with a digital camera. The real spray images with the time changes was analyzed and compared with based diesel fuel. The results show that the higher of water contents due to higher viscosity influences the higher penetration length and lower spray angle thus predominantly the lower combustible mixture and lower the flame penetration.
